The Marketing intern will evaluate the VPR’s current brand identity, assist in developing a marketing strategy for our program, and create materials to share about our work with the general public.  Skills in graphic design and experience with Adobe Creative Suite are required for this internship.  Applicants should provide a link to a portfolio of their design work.

We at KCSourceLink are once again looking for an intern to help us out during the fall.

It would be a paid gig, of course.(We’re thinking 15$/hour.)  We’re looking for someone who can commit to up to 20 hours a week, possible more if we can find a candidate with the right skills:ability to communicate a brand through various assets, infographic design, and annual report layout and design.  We’re especially looking for a self-starter with strong visual and verbal communications skills solid interpersonal skills and a “can-do” attitude who also has:

  • Solid graphic design and layout skills in digital and print using the Adobe Creative Suit (Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop) along with PowerPoint (yes, that beast).
  • Visual communication skills that are clear, engaging and will knock socks off.
  • Ability to work collaboratively in a fast-paced environment
  • Ability to communicate an established brand across different visual messages.
  • Strong attention to detail and deadlines.
  • Knowledge of photography and video-editing a super plus.
