Social Media/Marketing Internship


Check out this paid internship opportunity with a start-up publishing house run by the YA/children’s author Cynthea Liu. Apply soon! If you are accepted, contact Prof. Chris Green (cgreen1@depaul.edu) and he will register you for ENG 392, spring quarter’s online internship class.

A start-up youth publishing company, based in Chicago, is seeking to hire one Social Media/Marketing intern starting this fall, for credit. The intern will be expected to work an average of 10 hrs/week and will be paid a stipend of $250 for the 10 week internship.
The ideal candidate is detail-oriented, organized, and eager to take on social media and
marketing tasks related to the day-to-day responsibilities of a youth publishing company.

For example, previous interns have obtained book reviews from notable bloggers, sent out promotional swag for publicity, and helped maintain a social media presence for our company on various platforms.

The intern will assist in marketing and social media tasks and will learn about the publishing industry. This will translate to a diverse internship, with practical experience in both social media and marketing tasks.

Any candidate should also be willing to perform organizational/logistical/administrative tasks, and contribute wherever the team needs help. Everyone working with this start-up publishing company has an all-hands-on-deck, collaborative attitude, and we’d like to add a like-minded individual to help us in the future. No task is too big or too small to take on.

Applicants should be:
-a problem solver
-capable of self-direction and management
-eager to learn new skills

Applicants should have:
-strong interest in child/teen empowerment
-strong interest in children’s and YA publishing (editing, writing, production, etc.)
-a willingness to tackle new tasks independently, solve problems, and show determination in completing assignments
-a willing-to-do-just-about-anything-for-the-team attitude
-a sense of humor
-children and teen sensibilities (In other words, you should feel comfortable thinking like a kid or a teen. If you have no idea how to do this, please do not apply.)
-strong communication and interpersonal skills
-excellent writing skills (capable of editorial work)
-strong time-management skills

To apply:
Write a brief cover letter expressing why you have such intense enthusiasm for the internship (maximum 500 words) in the body of your email message to us. Explain your education, applicable experience, and interest in children’s fiction in that message as well as how you meet the internship criteria.

Attach to the email a resume listing relevant experience.
Put “Internship Application” in the subject line.
Email your message to: hello@startswithus.com
