Reports to: Strategy Team

Overview: TMI is the awesome strategic consultancy of DoSomething.org that works with companies, not-for-profits, and governments to help them reach young people and fuel meaningful social change. Check out www.tmistrategy.org for more info on what we do.

In this position, you'll be working with the strategy team on the client services side (research, writing, project management, etc.) supporting our existing projects.

For more information on our internship program, please visit our internships page.

 

What you’ll do:

  • Research. Everything from finding trends on teen financial literacy for one of our clients, looking into new social media platforms to inform our work, to researching the background of a new organization/company we’re pitching to, you’ll be expected to not only gather information but to also bring your own ideas/suggestions to the table based on your learnings.
  • Writing. We may ask you to do create research summaries that will be sent directly to clients, or to own an email inbox that helps students who are applying to one of our scholarship programs. Either way, you’ll need to be ready and excited to write!
  • Project Management and Execution. This could mean reaching out to high schools to plan surprise events for scholarship winners, helping us organize/process all the checks we send out to our incredible scholarship winners, or developing social media content for our clients. You’ll need to get in the weeds and be a team player to help us execute on our diverse set of client projects.
  • Problem Solving. We’re a fast-paced office and team, so we’ll need your help coming up with solutions. You should be excited about taking different kinds of projects head on, and you’ll need to be ready to pivot quickly and come up with innovative solutions on the fly.

 

What you'll learn:

  • Managing multiple projects simultaneously
  • The day-to-day workings of a strategic consultancy
  • Startup life in the not-for-profit world
  • How to develop client-facing strategies that fit client goals

 

What we are looking for:

  • Excellent writing and communication skills: solid grammar, ability to convey message clearly, good telephone manner  
  • Detail-oriented thinker
  • Passion for social change  
  • Enthusiastic personality  
  • Interest in CSR, marketing, and everything data  
  • Knowledge of pop culture and the teen trends of the moment  
  • Be ready and able to produce client-facing documents
  • Confident working independently and taking ownership of full projects from start to finish

Huge plus if you have experience with any of the following:

  • Social media implementation for a brand/company  
  • Working at an agency or in another client-facing situation  

 

Applying:

  • Please send the following application. Any application that doesn't follow directions will be immediately disqualified. (Harsh, right?)
    • Resume
    • Cover letter
