Hello creative friends! The Handmaidens are looking to bring on a couple of interns this summer and fall to help with preparations for The Handmade Market on November 8. You will be working closely with us to organize, produce, and promote the event. The position is unpaid, but (and this is a big BUT) you will gain invaluable experience in how to run a successful art, craft, and design show!
You will create and manage blog content, help out with social media, and assist with project management — most of this happens online, so you need to be very comfortable with basic WordPress editing and other online tools/platforms like Freedcamp, Constant Contact, and Google Docs/Drive. Some experience with WordPress is preferred, but it’s okay if you haven’t worked with the others — the key point is that you’ll have to jump in quickly. If web technology isn’t your thing, then you probably won’t enjoy this gig!
We also need someone who’s crafty, creative, positive, interested in sharing new ideas, and good with teamwork. You must live in the Triangle area and have a reliable computer. Does this sound like you? Would you like to learn all the behind-the-scenes tricks and tips we use on a daily basis? (And did we mention that this is our 18th show? We definitely have some tips to share.) All right, let’s do this!
Please send your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. In your resume, include anything that’s relevant to your art, craft, or design experience, along with how many hours per week you are available. If you’re currently in school, send links to any projects that represent your skills, interests, and style. Share links to your blog, if you have one, along with Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest. Help us get to know you! We look forward to working together!!
