Posted at April 12, 2015 | By : | Categories : Our Events | 0 Comment

Are you a college student looking to join a local Green Team? Or maybe you know someone wanting to gain marketing experience with a sustainable company? Either way, you’re in luck: ATRS is seeking motivated college students with a passion for recycling and other eco-friendly initiatives to join our EcoArmy as a Summer Intern. We offer positions at each of our 11 offices across the country.

Spend the summer as an insider in Dallas, or surf the social scene in SoCal…the choice is yours! After the success of last year’s ATRS Summer Marketing Internship, the EcoArmy is back and better than ever. With a new curriculum that spans everything from demographic research analysis to developing and implementing marketing campaigns, summer interns will gain valuable real-world experience in a wide variety of marketing disciplines.

The internship program is 10 weeks long, beginning May 26 and ending July 31. It is approximately a 30 hour per week commitment, and much of this time can be spent working in-field, in a favorite coffee shop or at home if candidates prefer. Interns are only required to spend two days each week in their local ATRS office, and will receive per diem to cover travel expenses. This flexible schedule makes our internship a perfect opportunity for a motivated student who might also need a part-time job to supplement their income.

To qualify for the ATRS Summer Marketing Internship, candidates must have an interest in social media and be comfortable with community outreach assignments. Other qualifications include excellent interpersonal skills, good written communication skills, and computer proficiency. Knowledge of graphic design tools and video editing software is a plus, but is not required.

But don’t worry: We aren’t just accepting business school students! If you have a passion for marketing, public relations or a sustainable mindset or experience promoting a company or organization, we welcome you to apply.

In addition to the wide variety of experience each of our summer marketing interns receives, we offer something even better. At the end of the internship, the ATRS Corporate Marketing Department meets to decide which student was the Most Outstanding Intern. That student not only earns the recognition from our department, but they also win a $1,000 scholarship to be applied to their 2015-16 tuition!
