Reading your feedback, sorry about that. I copied-and-pasted an internship we had here, and forgot to include our website. it's www.thevsyndicate.com.

This instructables is a personal account. I'm one of the receptionists here. Just thought I'd do my bit and repost.

As for our intern policy...An 8-week, 2-day-a-week, internship and a credit requirement for active students is reasonable.

As for the no-whining policy... Whining happens when people see a problem, and instead of coming up with a solution, they're bothering others instead of collaborating for a solution. This doesn't mean anyone gets fired for legitimate complaints.

There is a vital piece of information missing that will strongly influence potential applicants: who are you?

Where's the link to your company's website?

From this topic, all I can glean is that you are in LA, won't pay your interns, will sack them if they complain about anything, and want them to make videos to market hemp products.

If I'm wrong, you need to re-word your topic.

Not even a website on the profile....hmmmm
Doesn't exactly inspire confidence in a quality employer, does it?
Kind of like "spam, with it's legs cut off and it's heart removed".
