Marketing Intern

Burning Coal Theatre Company is Seeking a Marketing Intern

Burning Coal, a small, professional, nonprofit theatre located in downtown Raleigh, is seeking a marketing intern for the calendar year of 2017. Currently in its 20th season, Burning Coal is looking to increase relationships, media coverage, revenue streams, to implement SalesForce as its database, and to develop a long-term plan for sustainability.

The ideal candidate would be willing and able to work a consistent schedule of 20 hours per week between the hours of 9:00 AM and 6:00 PM on weekdays at our theatre offices in downtown Raleigh. Please do not apply if you like to come in late, leave early, or take repeated days off. If ever a self-starter was needed, this is the case here. Below are some of the qualities, passions, and experiences we are looking for. We understand that no one will have all of these:

  • Have or are currently pursuing a BA or BS degree or higher;
  • Be majoring in or have a degree in marketing, PR, journalism, communications, or similar field preferred;
  • Be proficient in social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, instagram, YouTube);
  • Have a working knowledge of Word, Excel, and Outlook;
  • Be willing to learn SalesForce database administration;
  • Have a working knowledge of Adobe Photoshop and Constant Contact;
  • Have video and audio editing skills;
  • Have strong attention to detail;
  • Be a self-starter with a strong work ethic;
  • Working knowledge of WordPress (website management);
  • Good writing skills and ability to use the English language properly;
  • Grant writing experience is a plus; and
  • Passion for the arts and helping arts organizations!

Burning Coal is interested in a candidate who would like to grow with the company and possibly continue as an employee following the year of internship. Because we are a small company that realistically means creating some consistent relationships in the community or revenue streams that are sustainable enough to contribute to this person’s compensation following the year of internship. Initial pay will be commensurate with experience.
