Sales & Marketing Internship Opportunity at Needle HappyBookmark This
South San Francisco, CA
Application Deadline: Available Year-round
Position: 5 Part-time, Unpaid
Needle Happy is looking for a few sales interns to help us spread the word about Needle Happy. We recently launched added more products onto our site and its time to increase exposure. This is the reason why it is really important that these individuals help us in making the public aware of the awesome handmade products & services that we offer. It would be great if these individuals have a background in marketing as well, but this is definitely not a requirement. This is an ideal position for anyone that has great passion in environmentally friendly products that have always wanted to go into sales and/or marketing for a company that does good for the environment!
For starters, this position will be 10 hours/week, but as our company grows, hours will increase. We are extremely flexible with scheduling!
If you feel that you would be a great fit for this position, please email me your resume along with a brief description of your background and why you would be a good fit for us.
Thanks for reading this posting and we look forward to hearing from you soon!
