We are seeking a Social Media intern. The job requires 7-10 hours weekly, plus we ask that you join our staff meeting monthly.

We are looking for an intern to assist with our social media marketing efforts. You will learn the ins and outs of our our non profit organization and how to make social media a productive part of our overall marketing efforts. This internship is an unpaid position.

Interns are expected to have experience with social media on (at least) a personal level (use on a business level preferred).

You must be able to measure and document the impact of social media, and then suggest action-steps to increase impact.
