Are you a college student ready to kick-start your marketing career? Do you want to get direct, hands-on marketing experience at one of Chicago's hottest startups?
If the answers to both questions are YES, then UrbanBound wants to talk with you!
We want someone with a large skill set that is ready to dive in and get their hands dirty working on real projects, with a real brand, and see real results. Chicago’s newest start-up is looking for part time interns, 15+ hours a week, depending on schedule and skill set. If you exceed our expectations there will be compensation opportunities, along with the possibility of staying on part-time. You can also take this internship for school credit. We prefer someone studying PR/Marketing with experience in design as well. Please still apply if you have a killer resume/portfolio in 1 category (writing/marketing or graphic design) as we might hire 2 part-time interns.
