Eat Well Guide Internship/Externship
Telecommute From Any College Campus in the US or Canada!
We are seeking college interns/externs throughout the United States and Canada who are interested in food issues and would like to increase their research and marketing skills by helping expand the Eat Well Guide, a free online directory of sustainable food sources. While most experiences will revolve around updating and promoting the Guide, this is an incredible opportunity for interns with a passion for food and health to learn more about the industry. Eat Well Guide interns will work from our New York City office, and externs will telecommute from their home or campus to help bring exposure to small farmers, retailers, and chefs who are committed to providing local, sustainable food products. In the process, interns/externs will gain an exceptional view into the rapidly increasing sustainable food movement; and through their research, they will interact with some fascinating people across the United States and Canada.
Interested students should be organized, detail oriented, conversant in writing and on the telephone, and enjoy working independently as well as with other like-minded people. Upcoming projects for the Eat Well Guide team include the launch and promotion of an online travel tool, enabling users to find good food on the road through an interactive map on the website. We are also working on promotion of the Eat Well Guide through the use of innovative new media outlets.
Other qualifications: College/graduate students who can commit to a minimum of 10 hours/week either during the semester or summer. Opportunities are also available for shorter intern programs during school breaks. Hours are flexible, but regularity is important. We offer a small stipend for local travel and lunch on days in which you work 4 hours or more.
How to Apply: Please email a cover letter, writing sample, and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to (212) 726-9160. In either case, please note “Eat Well Guide Internship/Externship”.
