Web Designer And Game ProgrammerBookmark This
Stone Mountain, GA
DescriptionMy husband and I are multi-faceted entrepreneurs with many irons in the fire -- I am a Professional Organizer, life coach, writer, blogger, paid speaker, and travel photographer -- and my husband is a graphic artist and web designer. We always have a ton of interesting projects going on that would give an intern great work and life experience. You might be hesitant about working for a couple of solopreneurs – but considering recent economic trends and the state of employment in this country, its highly likely that some of you will end up working for yourselves at some point in your career. And even those who dont will be able to benefit from the experience we can offer. I have personally spent more than 14 years running my own companies. I devote a lot of time training both clients and colleagues on issues of organization, business administration, marketing, social networking, writing style, and process improvement. I challenge those who work with me and for me to find their passion, develop their talents, and take the steps necessary to achieve success in life – my students are given a broad education, filled with skills that will help them to be more effective and efficient in their future careers. Let me also say that I've had my fair share of pointless internships during my college days, and I want to make sure you get to work on meaningful projects – there will be no making of copies or fetching of coffee with me!
ResponsibilitiesI am a multi-faceted entrepreneur – Professional Organizer, coach, blogger, writer, full-time RVer, and travel photographer. I run a website that has literally thousands of pages of content and I publish 6 different blogs a week (soon to be 7, as I add a new one in coming months). I am currently seeking interns from the computer programming department whose responsibilities would include:
- creating a small, simple, yet entertaining online game for each section of my website (trivia, jeopardy, bingo, scavenger hunt, drag and drop, create a story with photos, etc.)
- developing innovative interactive features for use on the site and in social media
- I am open to considering any other programming projects that might interest you (this internship calls for basic proficiency in programming for WordPress, but will also provide extensive opportunities for continued training in its functionalities and features -- great for a student who is looking to build web design skills for his or her career)
I have structured this list of activities to provide you with valuable real-world experience – and I am more than willing to tweak my requirements in any way necessary to better meet your programs needs. I guarantee that you will receive hands-on, practical experience that will serve you well as you head out into the job market after graduation. The dates of the internship are flexible (can start earlier or later, if needed.) And it is unpaid (but with the possibility of a bonus based on performance.)
