Marketing Intern

Do you love to write? Spend a little too much time on Facebook? Have a knack for marketing, PR and digital media? Take too many pictures? Keep up with the latest things to do in Charlottesville? You should be our Marketing Intern. 

The Charlottesville Albemarle Visitors Bureau is designed to create interest and stimulate travel to our area and now we're looking for a rockstar intern to create, develop and help manage our new media marketing and outreach efforts. You will be tweeting, posting on Instagram, filming via flipcam, and taking photographs along with writing about all the things that make Charlottesville one of the top destinations in the world. This might be the best internship in the country. We might be a little biased.

Responsibilities:

  1. Assist in social media campaigns (Write tweets, post on Instagram, pin on Pinterest, etc.)
  2. Write copy for visitcharlottesville.org (produce descriptions for new restaurants and events-yes, you'll be "working" by trying new restaurants and listening to the latest local band play at The Southern)
  3. Write blog posts for visitcharlottesville.org
  4. Produce video for social media (use flipcam to film events, sights, etc.)
  5. Take scenic and breathtaking photographs of Charlottesville-Albemarle for use on visitcharlottesville.org and social media
  6. Ensure website is accurate and current (nobody likes showing up to a place that's gone out of business)
  7. Brainstorm and share ideas about new media campaigns
  8. Generate enthusiasm and excitement towards visiting Charlottesville and Albemarle County a.k.a. East Coast Wine Country


Requirements:

  • Excellent oral and written communication skills
  • Experience with social networking
  • Comfort with technology, learning new software, equipment and online tools
  • A willingness to explore Charlottesville


Think you have enough energy? If so, please send your resume and a cover letter along with any other materials that show you're a fit for the internship to sewelle@charlottesville.org.  Keep in mind; our inboxes only receive emails less than 5MB! 

Internship is unpaid and can be used for credit, but we promise you'll leave with a lot of extra perks that will launch your career to the next level. We will work with you to determine the length of internship and the time commitment per week. In other words, we're extremely flexible. Our offices are located on the 2nd floor of the Downtown Transit Center across from the Charlottesville Pavilion. We are directly on the Free Trolley bus line that serves UVA. Use of a car would be helpful but is not required. We're looking forward to hearing from you!
