SUmmer STyle Interns - 2019
It’s that time of year again! Cake Plus-Size Resale is looking for summer interns!
This summer, we’re offering a shorter more style/media focused internship. Internships run from July 20th - August 24th. This opportunity is only open to students (at all levels) and new graduates.
We’re looking for a diverse group of stylish and creative folks to help us generate content to enhance our social media presence. You’ve seen our Instagram and Insta stories (or, we hope you have if you’re applying for this)! Simply put, we’re looking for some more faces, different styles, and a fun group to help us put together more content (primarily photos) to be shared this summer and into the year ahead.
Interns will work approximately 3 hours a week independently and/or in small teams to create photos, video content, and social media copy. Interns will also get to work both of our Fat Splash events! These 5 week positions start with a mandatory training Saturday, July 20th and end with our Intern Celebration Dinner on Saturday, August 24th.
While some formal experience with fashion, styling, photography, and/or social media is a plus, it’s not necessary! We’re focused on putting together a dynamic summer team that can represent us well both in terms of the photos and content they create and their commitment to our values of body positivity, fat liberation, and social justice.
5 Week Schedule:
3 hours of group or work time each week (flexible)
7/20 - Training 6-9PM
7/27 - Fat Splash #1 (4-10PM)
8/3 - Fat Splash #1 Rain Date
8/10 - Fat Splash #2 (4-10PM)
8/17 - Fat Splash #2 Rain Date
8/24 - Intern Celebration Dinner (6:30-9PM)
Compensation includes a small stipend ($150) & store credit ($300).
Beyond this monetary compensation you’ll get to join in the big ol’ body positive party that is Cake Plus-Size Resale, get a behind-the-scenes look at how we create a thriving social media presence, appear in our social media content, take part in our sold out Fat Splash events, and grow your skills alongside others who share your values of body positivity & fat liberation.
If you are a student who is interested in connecting this internship experience to a formal internship requirement/class, let us know!
You must be a student returning to school in the fall. (Or, a new 2019 graduate.)
You must be at least 18 years old.
