Company Information: Synergie is a fledgling fair trade fine art and artisan business that uses a strong internet interface within the context of point of sale locations. Our tagline: We sell beauty and good vibes.
Internship Description: We are looking for someone who is an energetic, out-of-the box thinker, with an entrepreneurial bent, and a tenacious and creative attitude to help expand our point of sale locations. Duties will include researching art-savvy locales and point of sale locations for our product, developing cutting edge ideas for developing new sales venues and fora, helping develop the pitch and pitching our product to target sale locations, and creating written reports on research findings.
Ideal Candidate: Must be willing to stretch yourself, think creatively in terms of creating a whole new way of selling art and product, have a real desire to test your edge and leap in with enthusiasm, and would be proud to help launch a hot new business (that will look great on your resume.) Must also be responsible, mature, know how to meet deadlines, and realistically have the time for this internship. Must have strong written and verbal skills.
Benefits: Resume/portfolio building and mentoring. Can set own hours. Will be working virtually and with CEO. 25% discount on Synergie products. Once we have paid positions, our interns will have first priority—key in a shrinking job market.
Timeline: Current and ongoing. Prefer 150 hours over 10 weeks
Compensation: Unpaid internship, School credit available.
To Apply: Send cover letter (addressed to Leesteffy Jenkins, Principal), resume, a writing sample and names and contact details of 2 references (please don’t list your mom or other family member) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
