Winter internship for communications student/recent graduate, New
Venture Communications, San Mateo, CA

Job Description:
The New Venture Communications (NVC) internship offers current students
and/or recent graduates hands-on communications experience working
closely, and in tandem with, the agency’s staff and high tech and clean
tech clients. Activities include content development and marketing
outreach campaigns including writing, social media, editorial pitching,
research, audience/media targeting, participation in strategy
discussions, and new business development support.

Over the last five years, NVC has built a successful internship program
with previous quarterly interns from Santa Clara, Colgate, Stanford,
NYU, UC Irvine, Tufts, and Vanderbilt Universities.

Intern candidates applying must possess an affinity for writing and have
solid verbal communications skills. They should have a passion for
learning and listening, good organizational skills, be able to work
independently and in a team, and have a basic understanding of how
content and conversations are being leveraged in today’s social
networking environment.

Who we are:
New Venture is a small, national boutique with a different approach. We
focus on a small portfolio of clients, giving each one highly focused
hands-on support from even our most senior team. We work with formative
stage technology companies in IT and clean tech markets, and we also
work closely with a number of leading VC firms. This cross section of
entrepreneurs and investors provides our team a unique, insightful
perspective into trends and issues as well as a greater understanding of
what it takes to build and grow leading companies. Our team is small
and quick, with every team member sinking deeply into every aspect of
every client program. There is no hierarchy, just a
roll-up-your-sleeves attitude and approach with limitless opportunities
to try new things and collapse learning curves. This position is a
great opportunity to gain a tremendous breadth of experience without
being put in a box.
Timeframe: 10-12 week paid internship (Q1, 2011), 10 -15 hours per week

Salary: $2,000 stipend for internship duration
