For business, Vancouver is a very small place. This company is in the former offices of our biggest and best competitor. I didn't even realize they had moved.
Anyhow, they are a growing IT company, they just acquired another internship host company of ours. They produce security software for schools as well as a few other products. They are on the look out for an unpaid graphic design intern. This is a good intro internship for a graphic designer. While they would love someone with top-level skills, they are happy to accept someone who is familiar with Microsoft Publisher, Adobe InDesign and a blogging platform like Wordpress or Blogger.
This internship can begin at any time - the minimum duration is 4 weeks, but it can go up to 12 weeks. The office [pictured above] is located in Vancouver's Gastown neighbour, near Waterfront Skytrain/Seabus/West Coast Express Station. The intern will work producing traditional marketing collateral for sales kits, they will also work on a viral marketing campaign, using web 2.0 tools like Wordpress, Twitter, and Facebook.
As I said, it's a good beginner's internship. At the end of this internship, you'll have learned more about modern marketing techniques, you'll have built connections in Vancouver's IT community, and you will get a great reference for future employment.
