WHIP Social Media & Marketing is looking for an intern for the spring semester to help manage content for clients. This role will be a hands on learning experience and this intern will get to dive into the work head first!

WHIP has clients across a variety of industries, but focuses primarily on nonprofit organizations, corporate social responsibility, and social impact. Ideal candidates will be interested in a variety of subjects and be willing to learn about new clients as they arise.
