Well it does sound good, and I love what KLUTZ is all about. I have qualifications that i believe would be an addition to KLUTZ whihc include a strong background in the arts.
What city is the internship in?

This looks like an awesome opportunity. Will be entering Mechatronics Engineering at Southern Polytechnic in Atlanta Georgia next fall, but I've been taking toys apart (and usually putting them back together... usually) since I was a wee little boy. No formal arts education, past high-school studio, but have hobby-level experience in 2d/3d drafting and modeling, photography, and sketching. Above-average MS-Office Skills from current Administrative Assistant position. One question though, is this an on-going or one-shot/season internship? (basically, can I apply for Summer 2009/10)

Is there a particular location associated with this job?

This sounds like something I would be interested in, but I'm probably too young. I learn quickly, and I like to think I'm rather creative. I know a lot about electronics, etc. Also, I play a lot of instruments, so I have experience with music. As for the ability to write basic instructions, I think I can manage that because I explain a lot of projects to beginners (my brother, friends, etc.). But once again, probably too young for the internship to apply.
Hey sounds like something I would love. I am an Electronics Technologies major at Central Georgia Technical College in Macon, Georgia. I love writing and art; in fact, I am a painter and a musician. I have experience with different kinds of circuits and have been building electronics for awhile. Like I said, sounds great!
