Title: Software/Web developer
Company: TOTEM Media
Contact: Stephanie Tussing <sktussing@xxxxxxxxx> 6302079489
Hiring for:   Intern/Co-op
Description:
I am an undergraduate junior in Advertising/Chemistry with a rather
ambitious plan. I was hoping to find some student who would be
interested in helping to develop a web program targeted toward a 16-24
age range with national potential. 

I am looking for those with a solid understanding of Web application
frameworks and the hardware needed to run enterprise web software.
Students who are technically proficient, are good at researching new
software technologies and have some web development experience are
ideal. Knowledge of a Content Management System for handling user
accounts, user profiles, site layout, displaying and editing images, etc
(such as Drupal) would also be ideal. In the long run, completely custom
software may be needed but that would preferably occur after the idea is
pitched to an established social site. If you are interested, I would
love to meet to discuss the details. Thank you so much for your time.
