Description

Are you a start-upper and a team player? Are you a relentless optimist and passionate about working with a driven, dedicated and generous entrepreneur? Do you thrive in an innovative environment, eagerly accept challenges and find joy in not knowing what’s around the corner? We want to meet you!

WLG Is currently seeking two to three enthusiastic interns and volunteers who can work full-time one to two days per week between June and September 2016. Our interns are instrumental players on the front-line team behind WLG — not to mention the inspiring collaborators in the future innovation and growth of the company.

We seek candidates who are passionate about diversity initiatives in the workplace, making an impact in the culture at large, and being part of a solid team. You crave jumping into assignments, learning new skills and can tackle projects independently with minimal direction while upholding professionalism and confidentiality at all times. You will get to work alongside the founder/CEO of a start-up and other interns in a high-profile environment on real projects that will help us grow.
Our ideal candidate is someone who is energetic, works well under pressure, is attentive to detail, has excellent verbal and written communication skills, is organized and has the ability to multitask. You will be involved in all aspects of the business and must be eager to learn as well as have an appetite for maintaining databases, conducting research and building relationships.
We value all of our interns and we go the extra mile to make sure you receive an invaluable learning experience that fits your career goals and also gives you access to leading industry contacts.
