Must be comfortable with updating websites – WordPress experience a bonus, Joomla experience a major bonus! Must be comfortable with social media marketing tools – experience with Hootsuite, Buffer, or other social media tools is a bonus.
The company is located in Rockford, MI (near Grand Rapids) but there may be opportunities for location-independence/remote work. You'll be independent, but will also be networked with several other interns (across the country) that are doing similar work with the consultant for other companies--so you can also collaborate on similar projects.
A high degree of organization and self-motivation and marketing PASSION is required. This person must quickly learn the product and the market and contribute. Must be assertive to get what you need to accomplish projects.
