theCHIVE is hiring a Prospect

With the mind-blowing underground growth theCHIVE has experienced over the past year, we need to man-up and continue providing our users with the awesomeness they come to expect. The user submits are now in the thousands per day and we do a pretty damn good job staying on top of them, but Mac and Doug need a social life (even though they have zero game) and need help. On top of it, they have both been promoted and we need a new intern.

But we're not hiring an intern, we're hiring a Prospect. What's the difference? Interns come and go, Prospects, if they can handle the mental/physical abuse and half-nekkid girls walking around on occasion, are here to stay. And that's what we need, an eager Chiver who will bust their ass, prove their worth and grow with us. The Prospect period will not last more than 6 months before either being fired or promoted to Apprentice. Once on the apprenticeship path, you will one day be posting your own galleries on theCHIVE as an Author. But you must prove yourself. And that means we need to see INITIATIVE, sitting on your ass all day won't go unnoticed; you must take the time to learn what we do, ask questions, and get to know the Chivers. We can't tell you to stay late and work all night, but if I were you, I'd do it anyway.

As with any job call-out, we get submissions from all over the world and it's a bitch to sift through. That said, we are going to vet the prospects by asking anyone interested in the job to send in a one-minute video explaining why they are the man or woman for the job. You can email us a raw video file or post it on youtube, vimeo, youporn -wherever, as long as we can view the video.

You have till Wednesday, April 4th to email us your video. We will be interviewing the following week, so you'll need to be available if you make the cut. The position will start Tuesday, April 17th. You must live in LA or relocate near Venice Beach by April 17th (if hired). Send your videos to workatthechive[at]gmail[dot]com. Please include your name and location within the video.

    I would love this job, it would give me a life. I already spent most my time on the chive and inter-webs. I saw this and was like omg, googled their address and mine. I'm 1hr and 51min away. I have no car or money to get there. Nobody I know lives in Venice and i'm pretty much shit outta luck. It was an ideal position but impossible. I though oh ill just take out a loan or something but rethought it and was just like… no my life is fucked up enough… well this blows. Back to applying at local franchises.

  • Bishop

    Fuuuuuuuuuuuck! I want that so bad I'd punt 40 babies to get it! I hate living in the Midwest.

  • roadhog0

    If only Oregon was a little closer and I had a place to stay in Venice Beach area… This would be a great gig!

  • @HullabalooStore

    I've submitted my Video! Just to let you know there's a short 15 second add at the beginning of it, and one that starts randomly throughout. No Biggie.

    whatthefuck, chive

    Well, as long as Chase is dogging the coaivrsnteon, I’d like to ask what it cost to do this shoot.Someone earlier commented on how “cheap” it must have been, owing to the fact that you own the equipment; were using an abandoned building.But I rather think it wasn’t so “free” to use the building; you at least had to get permits and permission; did you have to get insurance as well? (Someone gets hurt in the abandoned building… the owner of the building/lot/land gets sued… )Those assistants don’t come free, those actors/stunt persons don’t come free… if you catered, more bucks… if you just ponied up for McDonalds for the crew, you’re looking at $200…

    nothing when the country went to shit under bush, and when it allcatuy improves under obama, they have to resort to things like this… good show, chaps
