Alliance Francaise is looking for 3 new Marketing interns

The Alliance Francaise of Minneapolis/St. Paul is looking for 3 new Marketing interns for the Fall. If you have an interest in French or Francophone culture and want experience in Marketing and Public Relations, the Alliance wants to meet you! 

• Complete tasks as assigned by the committee;
• Hold regular office hours (minimum 10 hours per week), subject to your school schedule;
• Attend weekly team meetings and other meetings as needed;
• Act as liaison with other committees;
• Present project results;
• Partner with local businesses and non-profits to achieve project goals.

Positions include:
• Marketing communications,
• Event planning,
• Product development of the 2012 French Resource Directory 

Marketing interns work with the Executive Director of the Alliance Francaise de Minneapolis-St Paul, working on-going projects while making their own contribution through new projects in the area of marketing. Primary work will emphasize extending the reach of AFMSP into the community and region. You'll have regular office duties – paperwork, reports, e-mails and phone calls – and at least one primary project to put your particular mark on.
Note: Application is for a general internship. Exact positions will be assigned at the discretion of the committee according to the needs of the organization.  
Skills needed:
• The successful intern will represent AFMSP to our members and our community and must therefore be both professional and courteous at all times.
• A demonstrated interest in business is required, since marketing supports the financial goals of the organization.
• Some French speaking ability is preferred. Fluency is neither expected nor required, just a familiarity with foreign language instruction and a passion for other cultures.
• Proficiency with Microsoft Office software (word, excel, power point and access).
• Perfect grammar (English) and a habit of proofreading and spellchecking is required: You will write professional presentations, news releases and other communications.

You must be able to provide your own transportation to and from our building in downtown Minneapolis. Prior Alliance Française interns and volunteers are also given special consideration.
