Brooklyn, NY (see details below)
Timeline: June 9 – August 15
Application Deadline: April 21
Compensation: $2,000

Internship Program Description:

We are looking for outgoing and enthusiastic marketing and street team interns to join us in Brooklyn this summer. Interns gain a unique opportunity to contribute directly to the rapid growth of Susty Party, which produces compostable, made-in-North-America party tableware. Susty Party’s products are made and packaged at a non-profit that trains and employs blind and visually impaired individuals in Ohio and Kansas. Our motto is “Respect Earth and Party On,” because we believe that in order to change the world you should throw a better party!

Interns work directly with our small team to build the Susty Party brand, act as brand ambassadors, and educate consumers. Activities include, but are not limited to: pitching Susty Party at stores in the tri-state area, hosting in-store demos and craft activities, exhibiting at tradeshows and festivals, guerrilla marketing and street team events, office administrative tasks, and party planning. At the end of the summer you’ll have the opportunity to present and share your accomplishments by planning and executing the second annual Brooklyn Business Intern Showcase, to bring likeminded Brooklyn born companies together to learn about each other’s work in the start-up word!

Interns will:

-Learn and implement the on-the-ground sales tactics and marketing strategies we use to build a natural consumer products brand.

-Deepen their understanding of the natural products retail and grocery industry.

-Improve their communication skills by working with customers over the phone, e-mail and in person.

-With the fast pace of life in a start-up, interns have the opportunity to interact with many different people and absorb a lot of practical marketing and sales experience.
