Guess I won’t be working at Conde Nast anytime soon…

Things that show the end is near.

1) More cuts at Conde Nast.

I needs 'em!

I needs 'em!

2) About 400 people let go from NY Times.

Anyways, I bring up Conde Nast because I saw an internship position available there. In these hard times, I figured I would save up some money for life, intern with them for a while, then who knows. If  more experienced professionals in publishing are admitting they’re settling for salaries a fraction of what they were making before are doing this, who am I do be above this trend? And right now, it looks like they need all the interns they can get. Well, not for the actual journalism part, but for all the other parts I’m interested in like production and marketing. I’m still young, why not?

But I’m thinking, that “who knows” part I mentioned in the previous paragraph is starting to look like a “we know, and it’s not good” type of future musing.

Hmm. I still might do it anyways.  I wonder what the plans of others hold.
