I’m not ready to let the fabulous She’s the First Summer interns go! But alas, it’s time to start looking for the superstar interns to fill their shoes come September…could it be YOU? Take a look at the descriptions below, and submit your information to us by August 15th!

3 Positions:

  • 2 Operations Interns (General Support)

  • 1 Campaign Intern (specialization in social media and/or graphic design preferred; you will be working specifically on the Tie-Dye Cupcake Bake-Off, our largest grassroots campaign which has taken to epic proportions this year with Seventeen and Simon & Shuster’s support)

Our interns will serve as primary aides to the Founder/President and also support the volunteer teams & committees within the organization. This is a proactive internship where your work and ideas have a direct, visible impact.

ESSENTIAL QUALITIES

  • Creativity: You enjoy participating in brainstorming sessions (and take great notes!)
  • Energy: It radiates from you and shines through everywhere, in blog posts, on video, in social media updates, emails, etc.
  • Organization: You maintain up-to-date records & schedules in Google Docs (Yep, that spells CEO – you know how to take charge!)

This also means you:

  • Have a smart & spunky personality. Professional and personable.
  • Focus on goals & tasks at hand while also able to think big, long-term, & multitask.
  • Excellent MS Office, e-mail, and social media skills — Google Docs WHIZ.
  • Entrepreneurial spirit. You have the discipline and the drive to thrive in a start-up environment. No task is too small for you, no challenge too intimidating.
  • Strong follow-up. You keep projects on track with effective to-do lists & deadlines.
  • You work well both independently and as part of a team.
  • Social media evangelist: You believe in the power of networks, online & offline, to turn simple, small ideas into big, groundbreaking movements & shape educational models that will have a life impact on someone.

Our goal is to provide US-based student groups with even stronger resources to maximize their fundraising power for girls’ sponsorships, to support their storytelling & communication with sponsored girls, and to help them develop the skills to achieve their own personal firsts, too. You’ll work closely with our Committee members and Campus Coordinators on the STF Leadership Team as well.

Duties include:

  • Managing media partner relationships
  • Creating effective educational materials for campus chapters & high school enrichment programs in the U.S. (graphic design skills a plus here!)
