Description

Small, forward-thinking educational company is currently looking for interns with excellent writing skills that can help us spread the word about our organization. It's essential that applicants to this position have excellent communication skills, demonstrate creativity, and understand the importance of attending to even the smallest details.

Simply Charly, a website that features a series of exciting, interactive sites dedicated to some of the world's leading historical figures, such as Sigmund Freud, Albert Einstein, William Shakespeare and W.B. Yeats, among others, is looking for a few good men and women. The site’s mission is to become the leading online source for everything our visitors want to know about the groundbreaking individuals we feature.

In a compelling and engaging manner, Simply Charly (www.SimplyCharly.com), offers teachers, students and other interested parties an original, one-stop portal to a wealth of information about each individual we present. Some of these sites also include interviews with well-known academic experts, who offer their unique insight into the lives and works of the historical figures.

We’ve been around since 2007 but the site is undergoing a complete redesign. We are currently testing it in beta to gauge audience reaction so that we can serve it better. About 150,000 students, educators, and other interested parties use our free site each month. Instead of searching among multiple sources on the web for the most comprehensive information, our visitors have access to extensive materials at one reliable and credible source – our website.
