Description

The University of Missouri Extension SBTDC of Cape Girardeau County is a very aggressive, fast paced client focused business development center. We serve 16 counties in Southeast Missouri and our clients consist of start up and growth focused entrepreneurs. We provide services related to helping busineses get started, marketing, business planning, focusing on solutions to problems they are having, and training on entrepreneurial topics to name a few.

The successful applicant will be working with an award winning 20+ year vetern in the marketing/advertising/public relations industry. As a previous owner of four businesses, he understands the entrepreneur mind and will work hard to help the client succeed.

The internship is housed at the center located at 684 W Jackson Trail in Jackson, MO. Some travel may be required but expenses will be reimbursed. This address is the location of the University of Missouri Small Business Technology Development Center of Cape Girardeau County.

The hours of the internship are flexible depending on your schedule and total credits you need.

I want to do internships for students because the one I had allowed me to really see the professional world outside of books and had a lot to do with me getting my first job in marketing communications. I also learn more from the students with their can do attitude. Students see things differently and I like that because it gives me a new set of ideas.

The center has had several interns over the past semester and all have graduated or gotten a job within a semester of graduating. Many felt the work they did in this internship helped them get their first job since what we focus on is real-world work - not theoretical but client focused results driven work.
