Department: Marketing and Communications
Responsibilities: Assist the Marketing and Communications Department with several writing and promotional projects over the summer.
In preparation for the large volume of press and media attention we anticipate receiving in advance of MOHAI’s move to its new home at Lake Union Park, the primary project for this internship will be to write content and organize photos for an all-encompassing media kit. Information from all the major departments at MOHAI has been collected. The intern will be asked to compile and condense this information—supplementing when necessary—into concise, well-written, and engaging one-sheets for each department, which will be included in the final media kit. In addition, the intern will write and edit other pieces as needed, track media hits, maintain records of MOHAI’s media clippings, assist with administrative and research projects, including mailings and market research, and update the department calendar.
