Internship – The Tennessee Conservationist
Tennessee State Parks and Conservation
Are you a college student currently enrolled in a college or university focusing on a degree in Marketing? Do you have an interest in the publishing world? Are you able to work independently? Do you want an internship where you can make a real difference, and learn a lot too? We have an internship available for one student who wants the unique opportunity to work with The Tennessee Conservationist magazine on a variety of marketing efforts. It is required that the candidate receives college credit for this internship experience. This internship will be both virtual and in person at our Central Office in Nashville.
The Tennessee Conservationist is a bimonthly print + digital magazine that highlights the natural resources, diverse activities, historical significance, and hospitality services within Tennessee State Parks. We also run stories and gorgeous photographs on related environmental concerns, efforts, and opportunities. Our Marketing Intern will help enlarge our subscription base. Preferred candidates will be good writers, will enjoy talking to people, will be outgoing and enthusiastic, and will have a vested interest in helping our small conservation magazine grow. We seek an intern who wants to create positive results, helping us spread the word about environmentalism and the wonders of nature. Experience in outbound sales calling, social media content creation and analytics, programmatic advertising and/or advertising copywriting is a plus.
