Description

WeightLiftingGloves.com is the webs leading supplier of gloves, wraps, grips and hand saving accessories for athletes.

Launching in early 2015 WeightLiftingGloves.com has partnered with dozens of companies, athletes and charities with the sole purpose of being the single best online resource for athletic hand protection. Our business model serves as a wholesaler, drop-shipper and affiliate and we have the capability and flexibility in partnering with companies in which ever way serves them and our customers best.

We've seen steady growth in our first year of business, but still have a ton of hard work to do in partnering with companies, athletes, and other web resources.

In this internship we are hoping to connect with a high energy professional individual who is interested in the fitness industry and wants to learn about eCommerce, social media best practices, SEO, and interested in establishing their own contacts in the fitness world. This is an unpaid internship out of the gate, but given the size and growth potential of our site, this could eventually turn into a pair position. Also we would be happy to supply interns with letters of recommendation.
