I am #blessed and am in need of an intern. My little firm is growing and I need help to keep on track. This position covers all aspects of a start up business, so be prepared to do a lot more than just design. I’m looking for someone to be transparent with in regards to the financial and business end of it, along with helping me with designs, sample ordering, bookkeeping, the whole nine yards. I am willing to be open and honest with the ways that I’ve learned what to do and what not to do and share those secrets with you.
I feel as though I work very differently than a lot of other firms. It is SUPER important to me that you are a very personable person. It is important to be professional too, but I would take personable over professional, honestly. If you wear pant suits and blouses we probably won’t jive. Unless the pant suit is floral. That would be cool. You will be going on meetings with me and I need your style and personality to reflect my brand.
Being eager to learn and able to take directions on the first try. Essentially, I am looking for a mind reader. If you have that feeling in your gut that one day you are going to be super successful and have that drive, I’m looking for you. Things get crazy here, and you will need to be okay with working off my over-crammed dining room table, hanging out with Milo, and general tom foolery.
This will be an unpaid internship, but with endless supplies of coffee and food offerings. It does have potential to turn into a paid position, but not until at least the end of the year. I do plan on taking over the world, so looking for someone who shares that passion with me.
I would be looking to start with two days a week. I work 6 days a week, so the days can be flexible. We would probably start with two half days and build from there. You must have a working laptop and extensive knowledge of sketch-up. Of course, I will be happy to teach you more detailed things along the way but general 3D and 2D use of sketch-up is required. Also, photoshop. I use Photoshop everyday to create my design boards and presentations.
If you think you’re a good fit and would like to talk further about the opportunity, and I didn't scare you away with the above description, please send your resume and portfolio to firstname.lastname@example.org and a short summary of why you think you would be a good fit.
