Karibu clothing is seeking interns to assist in product distribution. Working alone or in teams, you will be responsible for creating an excel spreadsheet with over 500 items. After completing a training session with the owner and a business consultant, you will be responsible for recording (in excel); product names, product descriptions, price, suggested retail prices, images, brand, and more. In addition to writing the product information, you will need to take a picture of all of the items that you are recording, download them to a flash drive off of the camera, and then upload them to the internet so we can obtain an image URL file. The process is simple, and the internship offered is a wonderful stepping stone for those looking to expand their knowledge in marketing, entrepreneurship, and management.
