The Gourmet Gab team is growing! I’m super lucky to have a pretty amazing unofficial crew – Director Danielle, Kira from Kira’s Kitchen, co-workers who double as taste testers, and friends who serve as a PR team while they highlight and share Gourmet Gab news. Now I’m ready to add an official team member in the first ever intern position!
I’m looking for a right hand gal or guy to assist me developing partnerships and taking Gourmet Gab to the next level. If you’re a college student looking to get experience pitching marketing ideas and interacting with brands, this is perfect for you. In return for your time and talents, I can promise care-packages, first hand insight about Gourmet Gab happenings, mentoring and creative coaching, and fun.
If this description sounds like you, let’s talk!
You’re a college student who has a deep knowledge of food and knows your way around the kitchen. You are well-versed in popular food trends, blogs, websites and media. In your free time your friends will probably find you watching cooking videos and researching the next thing you’re going to create.
In your classes you’re learning how to be innovative at marketing and utilize digital platforms to tell a story. You have experience in a little bit of everything: marketing, public relations, social media, blogging and/or writing. You’ve got an entrepreneurial spirit and are a self-starter. You are ready for a chance to stretch your creativity, gain experience and think strategically.
