Carlton PR & Marketing and its sister companies, MIN (Mass Innovation Nights) and Innovation Women, frequently look for enthusiastic interns to join our team at our offices in the Boston suburb of Lexington, MA. (Currently looking for late summer and Fall 2019)
Our firm seeks students or recent grads to work as an intern for all of our organizations (Carlton PR & Marketing, Mass Innovation Nights and Innovation Women), helping with our websites, e-newsletters, PR, online marketing programs, social media, events and trade shows. Interns are very hands-on, working closely with our small team. This is a great opportunity to get in on the ground floor with several exciting organizations AND insert yourself into the local innovation-oriented ecosystem. Typical day-to-day activities include: various projects associated with marketing; assistance with marketing and PR copy and activities; research; social media marketing; events marketing & management; e-newsletter and e-mail compilation, creation and distribution; creation/updating of web pages and web content; “day of” event assistance and setup; proofreading and more.
What does a stellar intern look like? Enthusiasm is mandatory. Interest in learning about integrated marketing is vital. Excellent writers are preferred, as is experience using various social media tools. Writing samples are expected. Hours required vary based on projects but best would be at least 20 hours weekly. Majors preferred: Marketing, Communications, Business, PR and Journalism majors.
About Carlton PR & Marketing
We’re the best-connected marketing and PR agency in the Boston startup community. We work with startups, small companies, and only the most innovative and interesting larger companies. We offer strategic marketing programs, PR, content creation and social media marketing but we find ourselves spending just as much time advising clients on their general business challenges and making introductions to the movers and shakers.
We also manage two startups of our own – these mission-driven companies make a real difference for local entrepreneurs (Innovation Nights) and professional women around the world (Innovation Women).
We’re also uniquely able to balance work and life. Working from home sometimes – that’s cool. PT? OK. Our Lexington office is shared with another startup – it’s our home away from home, with free parking and an easy walk to Starbucks, Chipotle, Panera, grocery, dry cleaner, etc. And it’s a small tight-knit team – low drama and friendly.
Like networking and learning new things? We have you covered. Every day is different and there’s a lot of opportunity to experiment and try new strategies. We’re looking for multi-talented team members. We want great writers and communicators, but you should also have good judgment, be able to juggle multiple demands on your time and understand marketing down to your core. Blog? Check? Social media? Events? PPC? SEO? Oh, yes, of course. Know when earned media is possible and when you need to pay for visibility. Go from managing a webinar to issuing a press release to Instagram. Bonus points for comfort behind a lens (photography and videography) and a design sense.
You should have comfort with startups and the startup lifestyle. Treat their budget like your own money. Be interested in and knowledgeable about their (admittedly often) geeky but SUPER cool new products. Understand their stresses and fears. Be customer-service oriented.
You don’t need to do it all. We’re willing to teach the right person. Best fits are self-sufficient team players with experience and skills to teach us new stuff who are always looking to learn new things themselves.
