Leon and his company, Natural Light beer, are looking for a summer intern.

When you get back to college in the fall, you will surely be asked by friends: “What did you do over the summer?”

If the answer to that is anything other than, “I was a summer intern for Natty Light,” then you have failed at summer.

That’s right: The crew at Natural Light beer is looking for someone to be their Summer Intern in their New York City offices.

It’s a paid position — although the job listing doesn’t say how much you’ll be paid. But Thrillist found out — via a Natural Light spokesperson — the gig pays about $40 an hour for an eight-week period, which translates to about $12,800.

Not bad for a job where one of the requirements is to “just be cool.”

The company dropped a video on YouTube as a recruitment tool.

Well, Leon did the video — and it’s obvious the company isn’t taking things too seriously.

Nice job, Leon! (Even dropping a Pat McAffee reference! Strong.)

Among the things you’ll be asked to do: Attend social events as an “ambassador of the brand,” take on social media, do some guerilla marketing, design “some sick swag,” and product research. That last one is important, because the official job listing says “it’s what you think it is” — and that means drink product.

Want to apply? Of course you do! Well, here — don’t say we never gave you anything. Good luck.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
