We’re Seeking a Paid Marketing Intern

We’re seeking an entry-level marketing intern who can join our team in the Savannah area

About the Role

The internship is a hybrid role that offers real-world marketing experience. Due to the nature of our work in events and workspace management, this role requires in-person work with at least one workday per week working from our membership space as well as being present for our events around town. This is a contract position that will involve 10-15 hours of work per week. As a contract worker, you will be required to track and record your hours as you work. The role pays $15 per hour and reports to the lead program manager.

The Specifics

The Marketing Intern will support the initiatives, brands, and programs/events that fall under The Creative Coast (see below for more on us). Duties will vary across projects for the semester, and while you’ll have some running responsibilities throughout your internship, you won’t always be doing the same thing from week to week. Things never get boring here! Here’s what to expect with the apprenticeship…

– Writing web copy, press releases, news stories, social media copy, and more

– Curating and designing newsletter content 

– Using and updating WordPress websites

– Keyword research and SEO best practices

– Graphic design 

– Social media management

– Photography, videography, and editing 

– Campaign marketing for events/programs

Actively participating in marketing and staff meetings providing solutions and up-to-date information on different projects in progress

– Representing The Creative Coast at events and social gatherings

You’re An Ideal Candidate If You Are…

A college/university student seeking marketing experience OR you’re an individual with a bachelor’s or post-graduate degree in marketing, public relations, journalism, or professional communications from an accredited US-based university. 

This role is great for someone who wants real-world marketing/communications experience, is curious to learn, is self-motivated, enjoys collaboration, and loves to write! While you will dip your toe in all of the above duties mentioned, writing is a key component of this role. When it comes to writing, you shouldn’t mind doing research to fact-check and get the info needed for a good blog post/story, paying attention to detail, and working on a deadline (sometimes a tight deadline – we move pretty fast).
