Before I started The Points Guy, I was in recruiting at a major investment bank. So, I guess you could say that recruitment is in my blood. It was actually that job that allowed me to travel a ton to college campuses across North America and rake in tons of miles and points, eventually starting TPG while I was still working there.

Since then, I never would have dreamed that TPG would turn into what it is. We now get more than 3.3 million monthly unique visitors a month and have an ever-growing team. With that, we also have a new 8,000 square foot office opening in New York this spring. And since we have a brand new sparkling home, we might as well fill it.

We’re looking to fill five full-time jobs, and we’re also excited to launch our summer points protégé program, our internship program where you can get experience in either editorial, events or social media. Not only do we offer a cool working environment with free food, but we also offer our interns $20 an hour. And if the last couple of summer-intern programs offer any clues to what might be in store, our interns have traveled everywhere from Hawaii to Senegal to Serbia. Not making any promises, but this summer is going to be fun.

Want to hear more? Tune in at 5:30pm ET today when I will be hosting a Facebook Live session talking through the full-time positions and internship program. If any of these New York-based positions interest you, be sure to tune in. Or if you think someone would be interested, send them to thepointsguy.com/jobs so they can apply online. We’ll be starting interviews in the near future.
