Marketing and Communication – Internship

Summary: In the Marketing Department of Loggerhead Marinelife Center (LMC), three different types of internships are available (Design and Social Media, Integrated Marketing and Partnerships, and Photography and Videography). The Marketing and Communication internships are open to students (undergraduates or recent graduates) with a focused interest in either marketing, public relations, communications, photography, videography or nonprofits. Interns will have the opportunity to learn all aspects of the marketing and communications efforts in a nonprofit environment by working directly with LMC staff.
