Startup Southerner offers a flexible, remote internship program that will provide both the opportunity to add to your skillset, as well as mentorship for the future.
We’re looking for folks with a passion for storytelling and an interest in entrepreneurship. Whether you want to design infographics, try your hand at video journalism or just build your writing portfolio with articles for the site, our internship program can give you the opportunity to learn the basics of WordPress and web content development while you sharpen your storytelling skills. Our goal with the internship is to help you grow while you have the chance to create on topics that are of interest to you.
