Looking for a Summer Internship: Emily Post is Hiring!

Looking for that unbelievable summer internship where you get to do more than fetch coffee?  Want to see tangible results from your daily work?  Want to work with sincerely kind and welcoming people?  Want to work on a classic American brand?  Then look no further than the Emily Post Institute!  Last summer I was unbelievably lucky enough to work as an intern for EPI, and it was one of the best experiences of my life!  EPI is currently accepting applications for Summer 2011, and I suggest you POUNCE on this opportunity! 

You can find more information on their Internship page.  There's even a video of last summer's interns explaining  their experiences (yes, even I'm on there)!  

Here is the job description:
Our interns learn to work in the nexus of media relations, publicity, marketing, web developement, seminars promotion and book publishing. We are a fast-paced but small and unique organization. Interns assist with all tasks required in a busy PR and marketing environment such as answering phones, proofreading, editing web pages, handling mailings and email blasts, coordinating events, and working on media pitches and materials. Successful candidates must be self-starters, have excellent verbal and written communication skills, good manners and a willingness to speak up. Experience with office software is helpful and a willingness to learn new systems is a must.

And the video:

Some of your tasks may include:
Putting your blogging skills to good use on Etiquette Daily

Writing original etiquette content (I co-wrote some college etiquette articles with another intern!)

Maintain the new website, launched last summer.
Assist with event planning for business etiquette seminars 
Write press releases
Set up interviews
And so much more!

If you have any questions at all about my experience, feel free to send me an email (canadianprep@gmail.com)!  It's truly a great opportunity to do some great work, live in a charming city in Vermont, work with incredible people, and have some fun!
