Marketing / Social Media Intern

The Thing About Cars is a talk-show podcast about cars and the people who drive them.
We have a six-year track record of producing almost-weekly podcasts on any number of topics that cover car and automotive-tangential topics. Additionally, we’re the only car/automotive podcast that includes women as regular contributors for every episode we’ve published.

Over the next twelve months, The Thing About Cars (TTAC) will turn more of its effort towards video/television production.

We are looking for a Marketing / Social Media Intern to work with us. The Intern will work on a semester-long project focused on market research and developing new audience targets for The Thing About Cars. Specific tasks might include: researching potential marketing partners, reaching out to sector influencers, defining portions of marketing strategy, and implementing portions of marketing strategy (including updating social media channels and producing marketing assets if necessary).
