Description

We are Travelers Connect and we are changing the way people travel! Our slogan is travel like a local!

Our company, Travelers Connect, is getting ready to launch an app called Jetzy. Jetzy is the world's first REAL TIME user to user social networking app that connects travelers with locals and other travelers!

The founders, Shama Zehra and Ty Sawyer, are serial entrepreneurs and have been featured on the covers of such news outlets as Forbes, Crain's etc. Shama is one of the first female entrepreneurs from Pakistan, while Ty has had his own show on the Travel Channel, with 20+ years of experience in travel media.

Users of our app will categorize themselves on the basis of their interests so foodies can connect with foodies, hikers with hikers, etc. We also have a credit card style rewards program for the app. The more people use the app, the more points users get, which can then be redeemed for rewards ranging from a dinner for two, to spa vouchers, to a free trip for two to Tahiti fully paid. Pre-launch, we have surpassed 100 thousand followers on our social media.

We are looking for high-energy, motivated individuals to join our team! As a start-up, we have several job positions available to you, and we have high flexibility to mold the position based on your personal interests and experience. We are looking for interns in: management, tech, sponsorship outreach, as well as brand ambassadors. We look forward to hearing from you!

Responsibilities

Interns will be working directly with the founders and corporate team, helping in multiple facets of the business. Interns will:
• Build and execute brand promotional strategies for different channels including outreach within universities, colleges and corporate worldwide
• Create product awareness through global social media channels. This will give them exposure to traditional, regional and worldwide social media networks
• Develop outreach and brand awareness strategies for Travel meetup groups worldwide
• Utilize company and personal networks to connect with celebrities, sports athletes, influential business people, etc.
• Spearhead a campaign for distributing marketing materials at prominent tourist destinations and outlets

We are flexible in terms of hours, as interns can do a part time project remotely from their locations (alongside another fulltime internship they may have). We have both full time and remote/part time internship/assignment opportunities available.

This is an incredible opportunity to be on the ground with a startup from the inception of the product and gain in-depth entrepreneurial skill set. In addition, the interns will be able to develop strong leadership, marketing, digital media, communication and people skills.
