The University of Missouri Extension SBTDC of Cape Girardeau County is a very aggressive, fast paced client focused business development center. We serve nine counties in Southeast Missouri and our clients consist of start up and growth focused entrepreneurs. We provide services related to helping busineses get started, marketing, business planning, focusing on solutions to problems they are having, and training on entrepreneurial topics to name a few.

The successful candidate will be working with an award winning 20+ year vetern in the marketing/advertising/public relations industry. As a previous owner of three businesses, he understands the entrepreneur mindset and will work hard to help the client succeed.

The internship will be housed at the center located at 684 West Jackson Trail in Jackson, MO. Some travel may be required but expenses will be reimbursed. This address is the location of the University of Missouri Small Business Technology Development Center of Cape Girardeau County.

The hours of the internship are flexible depending on your schedule and the total credits you need.

I want to do internships for students because the one I had in college allowed me to see the professional world outside of books and had a lot to do with me getting my first job. I also learn more from the students with their can do attitude. Students see things differently and I like that because it gives me a new set of ideas.
