Digital Engagement Intern


Is Buzzfeed or Vice News your primary news source? Do you tweet more interesting things than what you just ate? Do you have an active Instagram account? Do you actually understand the new Twitter profile layout? Cool, let’s help you turn that into an internship!

  • Acting as a digital ambassador for Made Here
  • Daily cultivation of Made Here content for social media
  • Actively monitoring and participating in conversations that surround Made Here
  • Researching creative and innovative ideas to promote Made Here through digital channels
