What to expect?
We are looking for highly motivated, self directed and outgoing students to support the marketing team.
Our internship program is designed to provide students with real-world experience in grassroots, social and corporate marketing. You are not getting us coffee, you are leading projects and participating in our campaign development processes.
Our interns are given the opportunity to manage teams of college students serving as ?campus reps? for Koofers all over the country from our HQ office in Reston, VA. This job provides interns with an opportunity to develop leadership skills, manage activities from the beginning of a semester to the end, and let your creativity shine through support and collaboration with the campus reps.
You will manage campus reps. So what do they do?
We encourage our campus reps to be creative and use their entrepreneurial skills to promote our services and encourage fellow students to sign-up. Our campus reps are responsible for developing their own marketing campaign directed at their fellow students in colleges all over the nation. Our interns are a critical piece in the process. Our marketing interns must ensure that campus reps are developing campaigns that promote the Koofers brand on campus, gain new users by encouraging students to use our specialized tools, and encourage current users to share materials by uploading their notes and old study materials, rate professors and course, etc.
What specifically is expected?
In order for our campus reps to be successful our interns must be in close contact with them, providing strong support. In addition, our interns must keep track of what all their campus reps are doing and provide the Koofers marketing team weekly updates on the developments at their respective universities. Our interns are our window into the universities. The better we understand the needs, successes, and struggles of each university the better we are able to target our marketing, products, and services.
In addition to managing part of the campus rep program our marketing interns are given the opportunity to blog, develop videos and engage in other social media campaigns for the company.
We work closely with our interns to provide guidance, answer questions, and help encourage their creativity.
We offer college credit for courses related to marketing and communications/PR.
