Urban Liaison Magazine, Publisher's Creative Assistant

Description
Urban Liaison Magazine has been in print since 2008 with a focus on small business in the Treasure Valley. Recently the magazine was purchased by Rogers-Strawn Publishing and is being rebranded, redesigned and refocused. We will continue to keep the focus on businesses in our community, with the added intent to include more lifestyle and community interests. UL is seeking an intern who is interested in publishing, design, editorial, social media, and more. This is currently an unpaid internship. The position may include tasks of research, writing (both editorial and creative), social media posting and networking, photography, page layout & design, ad design, ad sales, in addition to some data entry and organization, record keeping, and other general business related tasks. You'll have the opportunity to be a part of our creative collaboration sessions where we discuss upcoming articles and we create a plan for upcoming issues. The right person would be a self-starter, a go-getter, who doesn't need a lot of guidance, though who is not put off by receiving direction. Must be able to take constructive criticism. Someone who can think ahead and have a feel for what's next and be willing and excited to jump on it. This person should learn a lot about the business side of the industry as well as the creative, so someone who is anxious to learn and move forward in a related field is desired. Urban Liaison is essentially a startup. We are not a corporate environment with a lot of policy and procedure.
