Social Media Intern
SOCIAL MEDIA INTERN / Michelle Miller Productions
Start Date: immediate
Compensation: unpaid; equity upon achievement of certain milestones
The social media intern will be responsible for using Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat to raise awareness of two MMP properties, THE PRODUCTIVE HANGOVER (a weekly list of low-energy things to make you feel less bad about how bad you feel) and LOLz! (an emoji-esque messaging keyboard for canned laughter). The core demographic of both apps is 22-40 year old urban professionals in the US and Europe. Together with Michelle Miler, the social media intern will develop a 3-month strategic plan to reach and grow this audience, and be responsible for executing that plan by regularly tweeting and posting from company accounts.
The social media intern should be organized, social media saavy and a self-starter. S/he will have tremendous freedom to experiment, and so should be someone who likes to think outside the box and isn’t afraid to think big.
The social media intern can work from anywhere, so long as the agreed-upon posting schedule is maintained. S/he will work closely with Michelle initially to create the plan (either in person or via Skype), after which Michelle will always be available for questions, but will trust the intern to run with the plan.
While the internship is unpaid, equity in both apps will be given if certain download milestones are met. The ideal candidate is someone who is looking for experience to prove his/her ability in pursuit of more significant marketing roles, and Michelle promises to be generous with recommendations, her network and career help.
