ASHLEN'S PICK: Social Media Marketing Intern at New York Minute Magazine

New York Minute Magazine is a virtual site devoted to empowering women and redefining what it means to be successful. Their philosophy is that they understand life can be busy, so they want to provide a daily dose of useful content that can be read in a ‘New York Minute’. 

They are looking for current students who want to wear pajamas to work and who keep up with Game of Thrones so that during "work" meetings you can all gossip about the latest episodes. Seriously though, if you're looking for something in marketing that specializes in content creation and social media I suggest checking out New York Minute Magazine! It's a great place to start to break into the world of marketing.
