Recruitment of our summer intern begins in January and continues until the position is filled. 

Since 2012, Elon’s Student Professional Development Center has had the pleasure of hosting a summer intern, who spends nine weeks working on a variety of time-sensitive projects that are central to the day-to-day operations and long-term goals of the SPDC. As there are no classes held during the summer at Elon, this is a non-student
facing role.

This opportunity is open to graduate students who have completed their first year of a master’s program and wish to gain administrative experience in career services. This internship is paid.

Past projects include:

  • Collaborating with campus faculty and staff to compile and analyze statistical data about recent graduates’ career decisions as reported in the First Destination Survey
  • Utilizing Microsoft Office products, LinkedIn, and other tools to research and update corporate and employer profiles for the Elon Job Network
  • Managing SPDC’s social media accounts and overseeing social media presence and reach using management software, especially Hootsuite
  • Conducting analysis of current website presence and design, and making necessary updates to written and visual content, web page layout, and design aspects

The successful candidate will have:

Excellent written and oral communication skills; knowledge of Microsoft Office products, especially Excel; ability to work independently on multiple time-sensitive projects at once, for long- and short-term goals; effective research skills; a willingness to seek out new projects and propose new concepts and office procedures with confidence; excellent customer service and interpersonal skills; basic knowledge of social media etiquette and social media management; a sincere desire to learn about career services administration; and a strong sense of independence, adventure, and self-motivation.
