Sustainable Business Internship
Curious about environmental issues, historic preservation, outreach, or marketing? Excited about the promise of a green economy?
Then check out our unusual internship!
Community Forklift is part of a young and growing industry, so it's an exciting time to get your foot in the door! You will help our staff with outreach and publicity - representing us at festivals and events, networking with other green businesses, conducting internet outreach, helping with media relations, and expanding our list of customers and donors. This is an unpaid internship, but a travel stipend is available. You also earn store credit, which you can spend, convert to a gift certificate, or donate to your favorite charity.
Career changers, undergrads, and graduate students are welcome to apply. You must have strong writing, research, and organization skills. Summer interns must be able to commit a minimum of 24 hours a week. Fall and Spring interns must commit to a minimum of 16 hours a week. Because you will be attending community events, you do need to be available some Saturdays.
You will also help with a variety of other tasks around the store, to get an overall picture of the building material reuse process. According to your interests and our needs, this may include designing brochures, writing press releases and website content, deciding how to organize and display products, researching prices, or assisting customers and donors. Ideally, you will spend approximately:
