- About the Internship -

We are looking for a remote-only intern that has a passion for entrepreneurship, website development, and blog writing that drives user engagement. We need someone who is confident in their writing capabilities and is relatively familiar with website structures, SEO, social media marketing, and online article publishing.

You will be primarily working with our Program Director, Chris, who will give you article topics and ideas. He has written 3 articles for our site, but is currently overloaded with other facets of the company to continue to put out new material.

See some examples here: http://www.ticolingo.com/blog

Remember, this is all virtual, so all you would need is an internet connection and a computer! You would be working with Chris via Skype and Email and would work out your hours and tasks with him 2-3 times a week.

This internship will be unpaid initially. After 6-8 weeks, an assessment will be conducted, and if the candidate has had outstanding performance, a paid position will be available for said candidate.
