Tenzing Group Seeks Part-Time Intern

Job Description/Position Objectives:  
The Tenzing Group is looking for someone to step in as a de facto business manager for three mid-20s entrepreneurs. With respect to marketing, this would entail managing our Twitter account as well as our website. Though responsibilities will typically not include content creation, they will include maintaining a daily presence on Twitter and ensuring that our website continues to grow as we look to add more features to the site. Further, depending on interest, there might be opportunities to draft press releases and other related documents. In regards to the business in general, responsibilities would range from organizational duties to updating accounting information. In terms of strategy, if there is interest and ability, an intern might be asked to contribute in general strategy sessions that are used to discuss the future of the company. Further, pending how the business grows and if there is mutual interest, this internship could grow into a more substantial full-time role.

Desired Skills/Knowledge:
The Tenzing Group is looking for an ambitious, adaptable candidate that hopes to be a serial entrepreneur. To that point, we are looking for someone that sees what other people miss. In line with this spirit, we hope to find an individual that thrives in an unpredictable environment that changes daily. Though there will be some focus on repetitive tasks, the majority of the work will be created on the go as clients present new needs.

This position is a part-time, unpaid internship, 10 hours/week (approximate-fluctuations might include some weeks as light as 5 hours and others as heavy as 15 hours)

Duration:  The desired start date is immediate. Initially, the internship would be for the summer, but are open to extending it as long as necessary. Further, pending growth in the company, this position could lead to a similar full-time role.  Meetings will occur either on SCU Campus or within walking distance.

Graduate Student Preferred
