Possible summer WEB internship/work for me

I will need to hire an intern to help me re-design the company website this summer. I will need to interact with this person daily, so they better ride a sportbike..ha ha

It will be alot of grunt work, since I'll be doing the fun stuff. It will pay though, not very well.

Looking for someone still in-school..... must know web design:

XML & HTML
PHP
sequel server or other database
Macromedia Dreamweaver UltraDev or MX (dynamic)

It's a Monday - Friday 8-5 located in Lombard.

If interested, let me know.... we need to get someone in here ASAP.

I will know more about this Friday, after I meet with my group. I just want to give you guys a heads up... get your resumes ready if interested. Once we decide to do it, we'll move pretty fast. I rather give someone here the job.

This is more a "job experience" thing to put on a resume, not to make any real money . The pay will be what ever we have in our budget. I'm hoping for at least $10 per hour

too bad I am already employed....Thank God for that, but anyway, I could have used some "job experience" kind of gig like that.

Oh well, keep me posted. I will check with my bro !

OK, we had the meeting today and we decided we'll pay $10 per hour.

Again, you must be currently in school working toward some computer major, know php3, database such as sequel server and dynamic web design. This is an internship for the whole summer, now until late August or early September.
It's in Lombard, Monday - Friday 8-5.

If interested, send your resume to [email protected]

I forwarded thsi on to a friend with a brother in college... but the is well below the typical intern pay rate... which is typically $20/18/16/14 based on credit hours from senior down to a freshman. And good programmers don't need to build a resume. Now you mgith be able to pay someome to do this out of their home for a flat rate of $3k-5k but then you won't have a errand boy on the side.

I understand though, how budgets are tight. It will be a very good deal for you if you find someone qualified.

This is not a programming job, it's to assist me in re-building the company website.

It will consist of data entry... our 400+ page product catalog has to be made into a database, able to be "searched" on the website via product number. Also a cross reference database has to be created and someone will have to key in all the data. I will create the databases and all the necessary tables.

I will make page templates, and they will just "cut & paste" text from the existing website to re-create all the pages. I will make graphics too.

Our current website is written in HTML and PHP3, so that knowledge will be helpfull.

The new website will utilize HTML, XML and sequel server. I will not be available to baby sit so they have to know some of the stuff to be able to work independantly.

...grunt work... no one pays top $$ for stuff like that.

Ahhhh.... that's why technical degrees kick ass. I made $17/hr on my last intern before graduation 3 years ago. Other made 20 or more.

Ultimately technical degrees hit a salary cap unless they move into management...and engineers and scientists almost never make it past the director level without a PHD. But they start out much higher on average and stay there for the first several years.

We do... we pay our interns $10-15 and they rarely get to do real work. but they are still cheaper than paying $25k + benefits for a low level admin. But we are also a pharmaceutical comany.... we're used ot being overcharged for everything.

Guatam,

That is precisely why I have a post grad in finance and not an undergrad. It's worthless either way but, I didn't start out suffering with or, because of it.

$17/hr? Are you kidding me?

In my opinion, sales is the way to go. If I were to compute my pay per hour (keep in mind, I rarely put in a 20 hour work week) it would be obscene.

I am not trying to discount a technical IT career path, however, I am consistently paid to take customers to lunch, dinner, and golfing.

Anyone with college sheepskin and the gift of gab should seriously consider sales!
