How to get to Yahoo: Be smart and creative, or be Lloyd Braun's spawn

Poking fun at Lloyd Braun's pointless job may be fun, but the Yahoo Media Group head is no dummy — his TV biz skills are just pointless at a company that doesn't want to make content. But a reader says that Lloyd's putting one classic skill to work.

Lloyd's daughter started as a lifestyles intern last week in Santa Monica. Internships at Yahoo! are highly coveted, especially in the business and marketing units. It seems that daddy's little girl may not have the chops to compete with all the top MBAs, so they stuck her in the lifestyles division.

Nepotism is common in TV, so maybe Lloyd's previous experience is helping him after all.
