  • Opportunity to meet, connect and work with top-level regional and state leaders in business, government, academia, and community and economic development
  • Our unique work means our team members’ abilities are put to work daily. If you don’t know what your unique ability is, you will realize it in this environment.

What would I do everyday?

The person in the internship role is a crucial facet of the team, providing support to individuals at all levels within the organization. On a daily basis, this person will be contributing to client management efforts; scheduling meetings; supporting our marketing team; working on projects for our largest client, EngenuitySC; office administration; miscellaneous errands and more.

What do I need to be successful in this role?

This is an internship – we don’t expect you to walk in the door knowing exactly what needs to be done and how to do it. We do, however, expect the following from any member that joins our team:

  • You need to be a do-er. Plain and simple. We have a small team servicing a full load of clients, so we need people who are motivated to get the job done with high standards.
  • Obsession with detail and the ability to handle multiple tasks at once in a dynamic, fast-paced environment
  • Communication skills are critical – Ie, when you have completed a task, experience roadblocks or have time on your plate and are available to do more for the team
  • Understanding of general professional decorum and attire
  • Basic level of knowledge relating to Google Apps including Gmail, Calendar, Drive, Sheets, etc.
  • You need to be proactive on all fronts – this is not the environment that caters well to individuals who are waiting for things to come to them.
  • The willingness to dive in and lend a hand in any way that could be helpful
  • Applicant will need a laptop as well as reliable transportation

How can I really stand out?

  • Have experience with any of the following: Mailchimp, Trello, Eventbrite, InDesign, or any other tool that resembles one of these
  • Demonstrating a willingness to dive in and give 100% to ANY task – even if that’s restocking the fridge or tidying up the break area
  • Passion for economic and community development and awareness of activities in the local and regional economy
  • Being kind and thoughtful in your personal and professional endeavors
  • Availability to work after hours when needed

This sounds awesome. I’m ready to apply!
