An Awesome Internship

How often do you get to include the word ‘awesome‘ on your resume? Here is your chance! We’re looking for a passionate, organized, independent and innovative individual to join us this fall as the Awesome (Marketing and Events) Intern.

Here’s what we can offer:

  • A unique experience to work with an entrepreneurial group of individuals to help make Pittsburgh better $1000 at a time
  • Practical work experience in the marketing/communications/events field
  • The chance to participate in monthly Awesome Pittsburgh Board meetings
  • An opportunity to attend award celebrations where you can network professionally with awesome people
  • These words on your resume: Awesome Intern

Here’s what we will need you to do:

  • Find creative ways to use social media, traditional media, professional networks and other outlets to encourage applicants and promote awardees
  • Write and distribute news releases that make reporters and bloggers say, “wow, that’s awesome”
  • Create and maintain databases of media contacts, community organizations and outreach outlets
  • Develop strategies for spreading awesomeness throughout Pittsburgh via speaking engagements, networking opportunities, community partnerships, etc
  • Plan quarterly award celebrations (Awesome Parties!)

Some nuts and bolts info:

  • The internship is based on 5 – 10 hours a week. Most of the work will be done virtually – we have no brick and mortar office.
  • The internship is unpaid. But — we can’t stress this enough — your resume will say “Awesome Intern”
  • The internship will start in October 2012.
