If you work for Tiffany can you afford breakfast?

Much Twittering today about freelance journalist Tifffany Wright advertising for an unpaid intern to help her dig up real life/women's magazine stories.
According to the ad, tasks would involve:
  • Coming up with features ideas for women’s magazines scouring newspapers and online every day for great potential real life features and then chasing these stories
  • Liaising with case studies and interviewing
  • Contacting Prs/charities/television contacts in order to secure exclusive real life storiesWriting teasers to send out to magazines
  • Networking (this includes going to functions, parties etc)
  • General admin duties

The position in based in central London and the intern must be able to commit for at least 6 weeks and is "initially an unpaid position although for the right candidate there is the definite potential for a permanent role."
