Students, as you are gearing up to apply for 2014 internships, here is an overview of what 1M/1M has in store in 2014. As you know, our mission is to help a million entrepreneurs build $1 million and beyond in annual revenue. This internship comes with a 1 year 1M/1M Premium Membership to those interns who complete 100 hours of successful projects, as follows:
The bulk of the internships this year will be around our work with social media. Over the past year we built a high volume social media platform [try it by following us on Twitter @sramana and @1Mby1M] with 200 messages a day. As we reach into newer and diverse geographies, we are working to devise and execute culturally and geographically nuanced strategies of social media engagement.
This is an opportunity to learn critical lessons in communication and marketing in the real world. Further you will provide crucial feedback that will help us refine 1M/1M’s marketing model. The internship and the scholarship together would equip you with knowledge of critical aspects of entrepreneurship.
You must be familiar with these tools, and deeply interested in using them to promote the 1M/1M message.
