Fall 2016: RAINRAPS - Business Development/Marketing Intern

Aug 26, 2016

Posted in: Advertising internships, Internships & scholarships, Public Relations internships

RAINRAPS is a local manufacturer of woman's accessories in Richmond. We will be celebrating our 5 year anniversary in January, so we are a fairly new company with my partner and I running the show, so our list of things for an intern are endless.  

We run our business out of our homes, so this would be a project that the intern would work remotely. We are looking for a student to maintain communication with existing retailers (a list of over 500 stores) and do some market surveying with these customers to make sure that they are displaying our merchandise in a way that best reflects the maximum sales. We will plan to meet with the intern once a week to go over the weekly projects. These projects can be as many or as few hours a week, depending on what your requirements are for the internship.

Our hope would be for someone who is a friendly, motivated, energetic people person with wonderful phone skills and has an understanding of the importance of excellent customer service. It would be a plus if this person had an interest in fashion and/or retail,too, but not a must.

Email us a note about why you are interested and a little about yourself (year, major, what you'd like to get out of the internship and your availability) to and we will contact you.
