This internship is a time commitment of 5 to 15 hours per week with the heavier weeks near each event date. There are two events in April and one we will be prepping for during the internship that occurs in June. Time is flexible, as this is a work-at-home position with the exception of a few scheduled work hours per week in person to collaborate with the Art Director. You must provide your own computer with at minimum Adobe Photoshop CS5 software and access to the internet. Our team is placed in different states and cities and we work as a group via phone conferences and skype when necessary. This internship position does not require travel to events as it focuses on the behind the scenes process. After the position ends, a review will take place with the opportunity to become a permanent part of our team, helping crunchy moms one city at a time!
