The Daily Do Good has for-credit internships available to DC-area college students starting in August.
Content Crafters (Editorial)
Do you enjoy talking to people? Know your affects from your effects? Can you tell a complex story in a simple way?
Editorial interns will contribute to the things our readers and subscribers see: The newsletter and website (as well as some social media). Tasks will include:
- Researching upcoming fundraisers and volunteer opportunities
- Writing calendar listings
- Updating the volunteer board (to be launched soon!)
- Covering events
- Interviewing nonprofit staff members, clients and volunteers
- Researching pertinent news articles
- Writing at least one feature
Strong writing skills, including the ability to write sharply and succinctly, are vital. Intern must be an excellent communicator and a self-starter. Experience conducting interviews is highly preferrable. Rudimentary knowledge of SquareSpace helpful. Sense of humor and a passion for help others a must. This could be an ideal position for a journalism or communications major.

Marketing Mavens (Business and Marketing)
Love makes the world go ‘round, but we can’t run the Daily Do Good on love alone. So, frankly put: We need money. And in order to get money, we need as many people as possible to know about us and love us.
Business interns will take an active role in helping to expand the reach of The Daily Do Good. Tasks will include:
- Attending events to recruit new subscribers
- Maintaining communications with current and potential clients
- Researching potential partners, sponsors and investors
- Ad sales
- Planning assistance for our October conference -- developing program materials, designing handouts, researching vendors, database management.
Candidates must be highly organized, outgoing, and have strong written and verbal communications skills. Independent self-starter a must. Research-savvy essential. Experience with marketing and advertising a plus. A qualified candidate will be proficient in using social media platforms, have a "think outside the box" mentality and an outgoing personality. Occasional evening and weekend work may be required.
