Artists & Fleas is looking for a super savvy and highly creative individual who is dialed into current trends and culture and thinks outside of the box when it comes to capturing content and recording exciting moments to join our team as a Social Media Intern for the Summer season in NYC and LA.
We LOVE to feature a wide variety of content including IG reels, TikTok videos, amazing photos to live as grid posts, and stories to keep our feeds fresh and exciting across social media platforms for @artistsandfleas, @artistsandfleaswest, and @re_generation. If this screams your name, read on and apply.
Your mission in this role: to get someone viewing our feed and channels to say to themselves I need to be there now!
You must be a people person! You need to love to reach out and chat with people and be excited about capturing the energy and activity of the markets. You must have a great eye for style (we’re not saying a specific style – we just want to know you’ve got your own) and you need to be able to capture great photographs and videos. The ideal candidate will have a passion for the maker, creator and vintage community. We expect you to have your own social media platforms + a perspective on what qualifies as relevant content. We encourage creativity and your ideas, too!
The position requires you to be on-site at one of our markets for approximately 4 hours each Saturday or Sunday from 12 – 4pm, for the duration of the Summer season.
During this time, you will work closely with our Social & Creative Brand Manager to capture and feed a wide range of still and video content including merchant portraits, product photos, shopper interactions, and more!
Hours / Schedule:
This is a seasonal position with hours consisting of approximately 4 hours per week. We expect you to be on-site each Saturday between around 12 – 4pm for the Summer season (early May – late August). Please note: we are looking for individuals who can commit to this consistent schedule.
You will receive $50/per day in Artists & Fleas “market money” – redeemable market credit that you can spend with any of the merchants at our markets and an opportunity to work with a great team and a growing organization. You will also receive reimbursement (up to $20) for a complimentary lunch of your choice (we see you Jajaja in Williamsburg or Very Fresh Noodles in Chelsea or Gjusta in Venice).
If interested, please send your resume, your responses to the questions below (in a separate doc) and a brief paragraph about why you are the ideal fit for this position and the brand to email@example.com. Please write “Social Media Summer Intern” in the subject line. Those who are not familiar with our markets and social media channels need not apply.
