Help Wanted: Interns

As many of you know I'm constantly working and my to-do list grows exponentially on a daily basis. So far, I've been able to manage the bulk of the work with little assistance but I've finally reached that point where I'm clawing at the walls in my attempt to get away from the piles of work that have grown like weeds!

My colleague, Sarah Negovetich posted about her needs for an intern on her blog and it made me realize, I need to put my own Help Wanted sign as well.

So I'm totally copying and pasting from Sarah's Help Wanted post because it's exactly what I'm looking for as well:

Here's what it looks like:
The internship is unpaid for six months, and I cannot make any promises in regard to advancement within the agency. However, if the intern is a student, I am happy to file the appropriate paperwork needed for course credit if your college allows for it. I will also gladly write letters of recommendation (where it's appropriate) for interns looking to get into other areas of publishing. While the intern will be under my direction, they may work on tasks with other agents.

I am mostly looking for someone who can assist me with queries, manuscript evaluation and working on the back end of marketing projects with my clients. But publishing is unpredictable, so I'm sure there will be other fun projects to work on as well. An ideal intern will have experience beta reading and/or editing, though formal training is not needed, and a high level of organization. A borderline obsession with spreadsheets would be helpful.

If this is you, or someone you know, please send a resume (as a word attachment) to Saritza(at)CorvisieroAgency(dot)com and use "Intern" in the subject line. I don't have a deadline for this, but I'd like to get someone in place by the end of the month, so don't dally. I would really appreciate it if you guys could help spread the word for me.

I will also add that the perfect candidate will be comfortable reading erotic romance, erotica and GLBT works. Ideally, they are a fan of the work I represent and like to read all kinds of romance.

ETA: This is a remote position.
