Shaping Youth, a nonprofit concerned with media & marketing’s impact on kids, is looking for an (unpaid) intern to help with the organization’s social media activities.
These include: social media outreach (bloggers, organizations, etc.), establishing and maintaining web presence (via Twitter, Facebook, Wordpress) and making sense of online analytics.
As an added bonus, you'll get the opportunity to work with Amy Jessel, Founder and Executive Director of Shaping Youth, who is a leader in the youth marketing and media space.
While Shaping Youth is based in the San Francisco Bay area, this internship is open to anyone. This is a really terrific opportunity for a student who wants to hone their social media skills and help focus youth marketing in a more positive direction.
mobileYouth, a leading global consulting firm focused on youth marketing and mobile culture, is looking for 'agents of change' in marketing, advertising and/or branding.
As an intern you'll contribute to research, writing, insights, video production, tour preparation and events. Odds are that if you take advantage of this opportunity, you'll learn more working with Graham and Josh than you will from that crusty university professor.
Interested? If you want to be a leading marketer - start marketing yourself! Forget that resume/CV nonsense and make yourself known. You know how you can contact mobileYouth.
