Hey, Social Media & Communications Intern! Excited to meet you!
Primary Responsibility:Create and manage content for Vines Islandwear’s social media accounts—specifically Instagram and Facebook to grow market awareness, followers, and meaningful interactions.
Secondary Responsibilities: This & that. We have a ton of fun opportunities to expand your creative & communication skills to help grow Vines Islandwear!
This internship with a small, fresh, new, but exploding business, is a rare experience. This is not an office job (there isn’t an office), and this is not a boring job (who has time for that?). You will wear many hats. You will have room for creativity and ideas. You will need to be motivated, thoughtful, hardworking, and professional. And you will need to be ready to have fun, learn a ton about business and marketing, and be a part of something HUGE from the ground up.
We want someone who truly wants to learn about all kinds of growing a business, someone who believes in giving back, someone who believes in empowering women, and someone who feels strongly about environmental responsibility.
This is an unpaid (to start), part-time position (hours can vary) with potential to grow into a paid part-time or eventually full-time position. Prefer intern location in the Nashville, TN and surrounding areas; or near a coastal/beachfront area. Opportunities to travel to attend tradeshows and special events (expenses paid).

Vines Islandwear sandals are available in whole sizes 5-12. They fit "true-to-size" to narrow.
Q: Do Vines run "true to size?"
A: Vines Islandwear sandals run "true-to-size" to small/narrow. If you are a half size, we suggest rounding up. If you have a high or higher arch or a wide or wider foot, move up a whole size. Many women can wear multiple sizes depending on the style and preferred fit (a tight hug vs more wiggle room). Unless they have a narrow to average foot, most women who traditionally wear sizes 9 and up can move up a whole size without issue for more breathing room. Using the slip knots, our sandals can be slightly adjusted to best fit your foot size & shape.
Q: Are Vines adjustable?
A: Vines side cord knots give a little room to adjust the fit and hug. Loosen and slide the slip knots up and down the sides of the sandal to create your best fit. Move the back side cords backward to hug slightly looser, or forward for a snugger fit. It makes a difference...try it!
Q: Will my Vines stretch?
A: Our Vines' webbing is made with very high quality, 100% polyester cording. Because of this, your sandals won't stretch, but they will give to your foot as you move and groove. With our webbing's fit and material, your cording shouldn't rub or blister. If your feet tend to swell throughout the day or in the heat, we suggest sizing up to give yourself that extra breathing room.
