Social Media Intern

Marketing & Communication Team

The Social Media Intern will be a member of the Marketing and Communications Communications Team. They will work closely with the Social Media Manager to help spread Pawsible’s mission. The Social Media Intern will aid in all of Pawsible’s social media and be responsible for frequent interaction with others through it. They are expected to act in an empathetic manner to the needs of others.

All members of Pawsible are expected to maintain confidentiality regarding financial applications and applicants. The only exception to this is individual applicants who have specifically elected for some of their information to be used in the promotion of Pawsible on a marketing level.

This is a remote, part-time, and unpaid position within a growing organization. We are currently unable to pay any team member within Pawsible. The remote aspect of this position will be conducted largely on your own time and will require fluency in Google Suite products. Video conferencing will be used for meetings that will occur on a regular basis as they fit in your schedule.

In addition to assisting the Pawsible Team in your department, interns will receive professional development, networking, and other insights into the workings of a small nonprofit. We are looking for individuals that are able to commit at least 5-10 hours a week, but can be flexible to your availability. If you are doing this for course credit, we will do our best to accomodate the needs of your academic program.

The Summer 2021 Internship Program will begin June 1, 2021 and end August 13, 2021. These dates can be adjusted to fit the needs of your academic program on an as needed basis.

You do not need to be a student or involved in volunteer puppy raising to be an intern.
