BB&CD Sales / Marketing Intern TeamBookmark This
DescriptionOur innovative non-profit organization has implemented an internship program to provide motivated students an opportunity for getting their feet wet in a "virtual" workplace. We give students this chance to prepare for a career by gaining valuable "virtual" experience along with having an opportunity to develop critical Internet or "virtual" skills that can be used in the types of businesses that we build.
Interns interact with our directors and other teammates through real hands-on projects – they don't file, answer the phone, or make coffee. Our interns help us with web development, networking, marketing, and fundraising campaigns; they also help to further our cause of assisting small businesses to create new products and services, which generate new jobs and aid our economy.
We're recruiting enthusiastic sales and marketing interns to engage with us virtually in carrying out our Internet marketing and fundraising campaigns. Motivated interns will have the opportunity to help us create strategies for finding prospects that could become new clients or donors of our organization. Interns will be able to choose assignments that contribute to the various stages of the online and print marketing or fundraising campaigns. They'll also help us come up with solutions to solve problems that are encountered by our team.
ResponsibilitiesInterns pick and choose the types of projects they would like to work on in order to develop their skills. Some of the sales-marketing projects could include responsibilities such as:
1) Profile potential clients or donors by creating new prospective demographics;
2) Find demographic patterns and habits through Google searches and social media networks;
3) Create, design, and implement strategies for print and online marketing/fundraising campaigns;
4) Communicate marketing/fundraising information (such as setting goals, meeting quotas, etc).
RequirementsInternships typically last one college term or semester. Joining our virtual team requires a commitment of two (2) 4-hour shifts per week. During your internship, you'll experience what it's like working in a genuine virtual environment, and also work with highly experienced colleagues in your major. Interns are given the opportunity to be creative, and they are encouraged to be actively involved with our live campaigns, while using the latest online strategies and Internet technology.
Interns must be majoring in a marketing, sales, communication, or business related field and have excellent online and email communication skills. A reliable desk or laptop computer with Microsoft word processing software and Excel are necessary to carry out the functions of the business-development assignments.
Reliable Internet access is a must. Interns should already have or be willing to create free Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, Google Plus, and Skype accounts. Some form of reliable transportation will be required if visiting local businesses/organizations and meeting people on-site.
Interns must be a student at a college/university in the United States.
