Only Honest Inc
DescriptionOnly Honest, Inc. is a start-up that lets users join and shape the political conversation by debating the topics important to them. It is the virtual public square where everyone's ideas are heard and the best rise to the top.
Only Honest Inc is looking for interns in entrepreneurship, marketing, social media or politics to help us promote our innovative new website. This is a huge opportunity for you to get involved at the early stages of a new company that is expected to experience rapid growth.
Who We Are
Only Honest Inc is a startup company that raised its first funding last year and is pushing hard to promote our video sharing platform, which is fully integrated with social media, where users can share videos expressing their political opinions and rate other users’ video content.
What the Job Is
Because we’re a startup company, you’re going to be asked to do a little bit of everything- just like the Founder and the President. Some days the work won’t be fun and may include things like compiling contact information for email lists or scheduling email blasts. Other days, however, you may help us design the concept and find vendors for a video ad, participate in a meeting with our web developers and give you feedback about the site’s design, help us strategize about our marketing timeline, or help design our promotional merchandise. At the heart of the internship, however, you are tasked with getting the word out about Only Honest to EVERYONE.
Potential Assignments include:
Recruiting new users to the website and fans/followers to our social media profiles
Getting friends/family/classmates/random strangers to upload videos on our site
Developing Only Honest Inc merchandise design ideas
Taking notes and actively participating in brainstorming and strategy sessions
Assisting the Social Media Manager in keeping our social media communications up to date and relevant- this includes Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Google+, Quora, Pinterest and Tumblr
Any additional ad hoc projects that may come up along the way
What we’re looking for in an Intern:
Because we’re a startup company, we need someone who is an intelligent, creative, problem solver and because you’ll be working remotely, we need someone who can work independently, take initiative, and not be derailed by priority changes.
ResponsibilitiesThe intern will also be responsible for:
An initial Skype meeting with the President to clearly define goals for the internship and to develop a plan for achieving those goals
Email check-ins/status updates with the intern supervisor each day that the intern is scheduled to work
Weekly check-ins with the team (via Skype, Google+ hangouts, OoVoo etc.)
Recruitment of an agreed upon number of new websites users each month
Uploading, or getting someone else to upload, an agreed upon number of new videos to the site each month
RequirementsMust be a university student interested in either marketing, entrepreneurship, politics or social media.
Must be a student that is a self-starter.
Must have experience with social media sites: Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, Quora, and Reddit
Must be willing to promote the company to fellow students, professors and others in the academic community
