Cast your textbook aside, this is where marketing in social media comes alive! Join Yelp as a Community Intern and gain real experience marketing to real people!
What is Yelp?
Yelp is a website where over 138 million people (monthly) read and write reliable and trustworthy reviews of local businesses (restaurants, bars, shopping, just to name a few) from across communities in the US, the UK, Canada, France, Germany, Austria, Spain, Italy and so forth.
Community Managers in over 100 Yelp communities are responsible for marketing, PR, other social media outlets, event planning, e-newsletter campaigns, and various odds and ends on the local level — but they can’t do it alone! Yelp Interns play an integral part in supporting activities designed to rally the Yelp community both online and off.
Where You Come In:
You will help develop, organize and execute marketing events (parties, happy hours) and guerilla marketing programs (festivals, street ambushes, etc).
You will co-manage the Twitter handle and Facebook page.
You will keep Yelp clean with on-site projects, writing and researching.
You will help with online community building.
You live to write and write to live and may help craft super Yelpy copy.
What You Will Get:
You will get practical experience with new media marketing techniques.
You'll have plenty of opportunities to shadow and spend time with the Community Manager including weekly meetings for coaching and professional development.
You will be part of a rich network of personal and professional contacts.
You'll get as much Yelp marketing schwag as can be swallowed.
What it Takes to Succeed:
This is a 3-6 month program; can be renewed with approval.
You must have 8-16 flexible hours per week.
You must currently live/resides in the Manhattan, NY area.
Interns must have reliable transportation and be 21+, as we'll need your help at bars, clubs and other age-restricted venues.
