It was just Aww Sam’s 1st birthday (hence the birthday cake and little birthday party), and it’s time for us to hire our first part-time employee and fill a couple of other positions! Right now I’m playing the role of crafter, stylist, photographer, and editor, and I’m so ready to give up some of those tasks. Ha!
We love to have fun here and there are always baked goods around to munch on (always a plus!), but we also work VERY hard, so if you think you’d be a great addition to the Aww Sam team, check out the job descriptions below! Both of these positions are in-house in Brooklyn, NY so make sure you are able to travel here from wherever you’re from.
A big problem that we have currently is that we have too many things coming in that we can’t keep track of everything (not a bad problem to have!), and so we’re looking for someone to:
-Manage our studio schedules for the week
-Keep track of deadlines and projects
-Organize emails and respond to emails where appropriate
-Run errands or go get materials
-Make sure the studio is organized
-Basically help us stay organized!
This job would require 20 hours a week (days will depend on what we work out with both of our schedules) and you must have your own laptop and be able to travel to the studio easily from where you are currently located. There is potential for this job to become full-time in the future.
If you think you’d be a great fit for the job, and want to learn the business side of managing a company like this, send an email to email@example.com with your resume, portfolio, and salary requirements with the subject “Studio Manager Position.”
Social Media Intern
We are also on the hunt for a social media intern (because who can keep track off all of these platforms on their own?!) so we’re looking for someone to:
-Manage our Pinterest, Facebook, and Twitter accounts
-Make sure blog posts/photos get pushed to all accounts
-Send blog posts to other websites for featuring
-Manage our blog newletters
-Keep track of blog analytics
-Drafting blog posts
This would be an unpaid internship with the ability to become a paid position in the future. We would require 10 hours a week (days will depend on what we work out with both of our schedules) and you must have your own laptop and be able to travel to the studio easily from where you are currently located. Some of this work can be done remotely, but I would like you to be able to come to the studio at least one day a week. Graphic design knowledge is a plus.
If you think you’d be a great fit for the job, and want to learn the ins and outs of the social media side of things, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your resume, portfolio, and a short bio about why you want to join the team with the subject “Social Media Intern.”
We will be reviewing applications and contacting for interviews starting May 31st, and we are looking to hire as soon as possible!
How many people are currently on your team? I thought it was just you, but you always use "we," so I wasn't sure!
I have a crafting intern that helps out once a week on the weekend, so it's only me 6/7 days of the week! xoSam
Ugh I would love that social media intern position, but sadly I'm located in Philadelphia. I'm sure you'll get some fantastic people to apply though! Good luck! <3
I would love to be social media intern but I'm in Boston :'( Damn do I wish I lived in NYC though.
