Summer Intern 2017

New York, United States

Description

Are you interested in becoming an entrepreneur or helping early stage companies? Have you already started your own company or plan to in the near future?

We are looking for fiercely bright, emotionally mature, incredibly hard working, and above all, self-starting high school, undergrad and graduate students for our 2017 summer internship program. We're a small company, so all of our interns have the opportunity to get involved in truly important work and significantly contribute to our team. Just like our full-time employees, we will expect that after some guidance, you will manifest initiative to make whatever you touch more efficient and more effective. In fact, many of our interns have gone on to start their own businesses while in school. For like-minded individuals, we believe working at Gust will be the best education you could possibly receive.

Although we expect our interns to work hard, we also do our best to provide a valuable and fun experience for the summer. In fact, our coolest perks are reserved for our interns! The first is that our summer interns are invited to sit in alongside our CEO and listen to entrepreneurs pitch their ideas, and help him provide feedback to company founders about their businesses. They also get to attend angel investor meetings and are invited to attend some of the speeches and training sessions that David ("The Pitch Coach") gives during the summer. If you have your own startup, you're likely to find "New York's Archangel" (according to Forbes) giving you advice and feedback on YOUR new venture. Many of our past interns have told us that this alone made the experience the best internship they ever had. You will also be invited to our annual Summer Intern Outing. Toward the end of your internship you will join your fellow interns and managers and our CEO for a special surprise event, which is always a lot of fun. As an intern at Gust you will get to work with our extremely talented team on real projects that will help us empower entrepreneurs.

We are currently looking for interns in the following departments:

Marketing & Communications

Finance & Operations (MBA only please)

Community Management, Content Management & Events

Web Development.
