Description

Did Someone Say Science are one-half science nerds, one half amazing video makers, 100% awesome. We specialize in entertainment – from TV to YouTube, books to digital – we make science hilarious. Our clients include NASA, Scientific American, The Young Turks Network, and the New York Hall of Science - and we need some badass interns to work with us!

This exciting intern position based in the heart of NYC, its only available to future marketing superstars, with a whole bucket load of get up and go. A high proportion of our interns have gone on to take paid client work during the course of their internship, so whilst this internship is unpaid, we'll match you with paid work if a good fit arrises.

The intern will be working from YouTube Studios (free snacks and drinks!!) on a variety of task, from snapping behind-the-scenes shots on location, to helping compose our digital strategy and marketing campaigns, as well as real world experience with clients equivalent to any entry-level PR/Marketing agency executive. The intern will be mentored by award-winning creative director, Bec Susan Gill and digital strategist, Jayde Lovell.

We encourage our interns to make great connections and improve their real world job ready skills.

We believe in having fun, working hard, and generally being an exceptional level of awesome – if that sounds like you, you’ve found your future home!

Responsibilities

- Public & media relations: strategizing how to make compelling content for top media publications, talking to journalists, and tracking media mentions.

- Social media: no one knows social better than today’s college kids. We’ll look to you to help create quirky, compelling social media, from Tumblr to SnapChat.

- Research: It’s a science channel after all! You’ll be in charge of researching facts for scripts, articles, and/or books as required, and condensing the information down to essential points.

- New ideas: Every one of our interns is given the chance t pursue a project they believe in. Whether that’s overhauling our branding or starring in your own episode, we encourage new ideas and fresh thinking.

- (OPTIONAL) Video production: Producing, editing, posting, and staring in episodes of SciQ and Styleogue, our other YouTube platforms.

Please let us know in your application if you would prefer our Marketing Tract internship (PR, social media, media relations, communications) or if our Video Production Tract sounds more like you. Applications which do not state which Internship you prefer will left in a constant state of identity angst and doomed to float in application purgatory forevermore.

Requirements

+ Must be able to physically work in Downtown Manhattan at least two days per week.
+ Must have a good grasp of social media – we’ll be checking out your social media accounts!
+ You must be brilliant at working with others – we’re an awesome, friendly team and we want to work with other fun folks.
+ If you’ve ever been described as 'child prodigy', ‘badass’, ‘overachiever’, or best of all, ‘nerd’, you’ll fit right in!
+ You must love communications – if writing an essay leaves you weary and you’re allergic to computer screens, this may not be the right field for you.
+ Knowledge of Adobe suite is preferred, but by no means essential.

-- If you currently live outside New York (like, Alaska or Kazakstan) but you’d really love this opportunity, please get in touch. We’re considering applications for a separate, remote internship and would love to talk to you. --
