Tracking, compiling, and reviewing social analytics for quantifiable growth

Knowledge of a wide range of social platforms that includes Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and preferably Pinterest and Snapchat

A demonstrated interest in food, drink, and travel and a passion for storytelling

Confidence working under hard deadlines and an ability to multi-task

Like many social media internships, this is one focuses heavily on learning the ins and outs of digital production, analytics, brand management, and everything else that goes into building and growing a dedicated social audience. Should you desire, you may have the opportunity to contribute content for as well, and we always encourage pitches from our interns.
