Gain experience with a Beauty & Fashion Industry intern position that provides an in-depth experience for interns to get a hands-on experience at running a company! From PR and Marketing, to Social Media, Blogging, Customer Service and web design.
The owner, an established makeup artist with a business track record and international experience, is launching a beauty agency providing luxury hair, makeup, and wardrobe styling experiences to our busy clientele of brides, photographers, designers, brands and celebrities. We are expanding to fill a growing demand, with a plan in place for continued growth, and career development opportunities for everyone involved. We are creating our tight-nit team of top industry pros and the opportunity to get involved is now! Interns will work directly with the owner daily on a remote basis.
You will enjoy an environment that is freelance based. We have strong deadlines but very flexible hours - the point is to optimize productivity (not log pointless hours). We're looking for talented driven individuals with a history of success and an open mind.
The Ideal Candidate
You are organized and meticulous, and you always run on time or early using the newest tech products to keep you organized. You love meeting people, are great with high-end customer service, and your confidence shines through in networking and sales situations. When an event you planned is highly successful, everybody has fun, and great business opportunities become available, you're on top of the world! You are an engaging and entertaining writer who uses proper grammar, and enjoys reading and writing about beauty and fashion products, people, and events. Your discriminating eye for design and layout make your work shine above the rest. Most importantly, you are excited about working in a very small start-up bootstrapping environment with the potential to become a partner.
We are open to schedule flexibility. The position can be part-time or full-time and may vary week to week depending on season, or upcoming events. We are happy to accommodate our interns' schedules too.
