-Assistance with the set up and breakdown of shoots and events

-Research, planning, and execution of marketing campaigns that showcase the P&J collection through email, photos, and/or video

-Social media content and projects

Interns will also have the opportunity to roll up their sleeves for Inspiration Station, a chance to grab favorite pieces from our collection and knock our socks off with your vision.

The intern will be expected to work 15-20 hours per week at our office in Scott’s Addition, and attendance at a weekly staff meeting will be required.  The internship is unpaid although we will gladly work with you on paperwork/requirements for college credits.
