We are looking for a creative communicator to join our team – a wordsmith that understands how to play to an audience and blend tone with technique.

You should be an aspiring Public Relations pro, marvelous Marketer, crafty Communicator, or engaged English major who wants more out of an Internship than watching paint dry.

  • Pass Hubspot Inbound Marketing Certification
  • Weekly blogging assignments for Verge Pipe Media’s agency blog
  • Writing and scheduling social media updates
  • Responding to customer interactions on social media
  • Developing press releases
  • Potential B2B projects: researching prospective clients, drafting basic VPM service proposals and developing copy for client communications
  • Potential to develop live events and real time promotions
  • Ability to adjust to rapidly changing priorities in an agency environment
  • Ability to execute and deliver to tight guidelines and schedules

Just some of what you possess: Skills and Experience

  • Familiarity with major social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Google+, etc)
  • No jerks or divas
  • Bonus points for video and photo editing skills, design skills, nunchaku fighting skills, or Liger taming skills

For consideration, please send a resume, writing samples (or links), and Fall class schedule (if known) to
