Eligibility


Candidates must be a student in either undergraduate or graduate school. Recent graduates are also considered on a case-by-case basis.

Currently, we're interested in candidates with the following skills: research, social media, graphic design, sales, marketing, communications, event planning, HTML/CSS, Google Analytics and AdWords.
