Marketing Internship - Student Opportunity with The FAMEE Foundation

Student Marketing Specialist Position

Thank you for looking into our marketing internship program. This is a non-paid position designed to give students great practical business experience, while supporting the development of the world's entrepreneurs. If you are not familiar with our mission to help entrepreneurs with marketing, please research this website.

So what would you do?

There are a variety of activities that you can do to support the development of the foundation. You would work with FAMEE staff to determine the exact things you are interested in and that we need assistance with. So, in a way, you will have some direct input in designing how you want to spend your volunteer time - what would benefit you the most, as well as the foundation, and the small business owners it serves.

 

Some of those activities could include…

*Participate in our internship training (monthly teleseminar and weekly email)

*Blogging on our behalf - both writing and editing articles

*Working the social media / community websites - participate in groups / forums on behalf of the foundation

*Write book / product reviews

* Helping obtain website links from business resources websites

* Develop and participate in publicity / PR related events on behalf of the foundation

* Contact other students and professors regarding our programs

* Participate in letter writing campaigns to senators, legislators and other government entities to make them aware of our activities (we do not, however, attempt to influence legislation)

* Research donor opportunities the foundation may qualify for

* Generally, assist the state director or director of development with projects they might request of you

What skills do you need to have and what are our requirements?

* Self starter - many of our projects are self directed

* High level of maturity and professionalism

* A serious interest in small business marketing - and a passion to help entrepreneurs and/or to become one yourself some day

* Some marketing education - either in school or self study

* Strong computer / web skills

* Have at least 3 hours or more per week you are willing to volunteer to the foundation - for no less than one full semester (Note: a great thing about this work is that it is very time flexible - so you can participate even if you have a busy school / work schedule. This is a unique and very positive aspect of this internship!)

* We also require you complete a weekly log of time worked and what was accomplished


What do you get out of this?

* Participate on a fun team who has a really strong mission - you will contribute to an important cause!

* Great training - you will learn a lot and apply your classroom learning to a real business setting; this is powerful

* Excellent work experience directly related to marketing - very hard to duplicate with a normal part time job - will enhance your resume and job search

* Some of the project work may relate directly to your studies and may count as project work in your courses (obviously, you will need to research this on your own with your instructor)

* Excellent resume builder - not only the work you do, but it shows some character and initiative to volunteer for a not-for-profit organization which serves entrepreneurs

* The opportunity to interact with and review the work of small business marketing experts


How do you apply?

* First, review this website in detail and "get" what we do - make a list of the three main reasons you want to be involved with this organization

* Next, brainstorm a list of six to ten things you think you could do to help the foundation (show some creativity and marketing "hoots bah" here)

* Finally, email us at volunteers@famee.org - be sure to include your resume, the three reasons you want to be involved with us, and the list of 10 things brainstorming

* Just a side note here - how professional you present yourself in writing is a key thing we evaluate, so read the instructions and be thorough!
