Wanted: Interns & Writers

[ 1 ] October 28, 2009 |

istock-000005396653xsmall-1.jpgI love that Kidoinfo has earned the reputation as the place to find anything about families in Rhode Island and beyond. Thanks to everyone who makes this so. As more and more readers, businesses and services count on Kidoinfo as their local source of parenting information so does the time to pull together stories, stay on top of local events and connect with the community.

Most of Kidoinfo is free–free for readers and free for businesses to promote events in the calendar and resource directory. I plan to keep it this way. Therefore I must rely on the assistance from a number of volunteers and interns. I am looking for some new people to join the Kidoinfo family. I have had some fabulous interns in the past but they have since moved on for other work and school.  Email Anisa if you’re interested in any the positions listed below, or pass this on to someone you think would be!
