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).
