Recently, Aol put out a call for a two month internship for the "Ambassador of Lifestream." Lifestream, their new product that aggregates third party social networks – Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Delicious, Flickr, YouTube, is looking for someone to become an integral part of their team. This "ambassador" will have the opportunity to work directly with Tim Armstrong, the new CEO, and will sit in high-level meetings and be asked to share their point of view with engineers, marketers and executives. It's incredible opportunity, with lots of perks including bi-coastal living, an expense account, VIP access to events/contests and mostly, the ability to really be a part of something. Fit the bill? Apply here.
This is just one of the ways that Aol is changing their game and I give Armstrong a lot of the credit. With the help of Wolff Olins, Aol rebranded themselves and are now focusing their efforts on being a media and publishing platform where content is key. It's clear that Armstrong is a leader that believes in taking risks and empowering others to do the same.
