Requirements/Necessary Skills for Recruitment: 

Overview: Young people are on the Internet (duh) and since we’re a brand who cares about young people, it’s important to meet them where they are. This internship is about engaging our existing fans—and creating lasting relationships with new ones—through creative content on our social media, editorial, video, and product channels.

Engage with our fans and followers online
Moderate and grow our owned channels
Help our product team create products that embolden the user experience of our members on DoSomething.org
Help our marketing and PR team court talent (traditional and new media) to ensure as many eyes as possible see our campaigns

What we're looking for:

Incredible creativity with the ability to pivot
Strong communication skills. Grammar is a must, but you’ve also gotta be succinct and effective in the space of 140 characters
Self-motivation and multi-tasking
Ability to work well alone or with others
Passion about young people changing the world, commitment to social change
Knowledge of Google Drive, Adobe Creative Suite
Not required, but a plus…

Knowledge of pop culture (you know, like the Frozen soundtrack and peach bellinis)
Have the perfect .gif for every situation

Benefits & Perks: 

What you'll learn:

How to engage with an audience in a variety of ways across a variety of digital channels
How digital content intersects with marketing/PR, campaign, data, and other teams
The ins-and-outs of the not-for-profit world
How a kick-ass office environment will inspire you to do your best work
