Summer or fall Internship
Are you a student living in Chicago?
Apply to be our Intern and we'll teach you everything we know about running a (study abroad) digital education start up.
Ready to learn? If you intern with us, you'll have a unique opportunity to peak under the hood and learn about every aspect of our marketing, product development, finance, and business operations. You'll also get to create a product from scratch.
WHO YOU ARE:
A college student passionate about one or more of the following:
- study abroad & international education
- education and teaching online,
- internet marketing and web based businesses,
What You'll Do:
You'll get hands-on experience:
- conducting market research,
- pitching product ideas,
- creating marketing material,
- editing campaigns,
- contacting potential clients,
- co-creating your very own product from scratch
You must be:
- a strong researcher
- detailed oriented
- inquisitive and resourceful
- self motivated
- an excellent communicator
- eager to learn
1st Half: Research schools across the country that have study abroad programs to learn how they work. Build a database of potential partnerships. Interview schools to understand how they do (after) study abroad programming. Learn about gaps and student articulated needs.
Midpoint: Pitch a learning resource that you believe will solve a specific problem identified over the course of your research.
2nd Half: Co-create one of your resources from scratch. This will be a free digital tool that students all over the country will have access to--and that solves a specific and unaddressed "after study abroad problem." Prepare two sets of marketing materials--one for students and one for schools--to get the word out about your educational tool.
Why you should apply:
Think of this internship as a research assistant meets apprentice.
Special note for future study abroad advisors: It's a great opportunity to start learning about how different colleges work. You'll especially learn what types of programing and resources are out there for students across the country. You'll be able to create a resource for your portfolio when you apply for future study abroad jobs.
For everyone else: it's a great opportunity to learn more about how a digital education tech startup works.
As a special bonus, you'll have access to all of our courses. And we'll mentor you one-on-one on how to write a killer resume and other career prep advice. You'll also learn the ABC's of starting an online business--information you can use if you ever want to create your own online business (or just have a side hustle to make some extra income).
Requirements: You must be willing to work 10-15 hours per week.
Compensation: Internship is unpaid. However, college credit is available and we can be flexible with your schedule.
