In Bicycle Based Businesses, community, PPP Team

Calling all Portland Area students! Portland Pedal Power is looking for two summertime interns wanting to further their knowledge in the wonderful world of marketing and event planning! We’re looking for hard working individuals who value local, sustainable business practices. Of course, learning is a two way street, and we’re looking forward to finding out what you can teach us during your time here!

The first internship we’re planning is focused on marketing. We would like someone to look at our current marketing plan, help in our use of social media, set some long-term goals, and help us record some relevant data.

The second internship we’re planning is focused on events in the PDX area. We make a lot of appearances around the PDX area, and we’re interested in what else is out there! This project would analyze and record attendance at local Portland events, from the Rose Festival to the Naked Bike Ride.

A willingness to ride a bicycle is always a plus! Both internships will last for the duration of the summer(three to four months) and have a monthly face to face check-in. After the duration of the project, we’ll have a big celebration and the intern can give a presentation on their findings.

As someone who took advantage of this opportunity last year, I highly recommend you consider taking us up on the chance! I learned more during my 3-month internship than I ever did in a classroom, and its a great opportunity to learn from real-world situations.

Feel like learning a bit this summer? Visit the Oregon Entrepreneurial Network website for more information and sign-up for a chance to meet with us! We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
