Paisley & Jade is a Richmond-based company specializing in eclectic and vintage décor rentals for events, weddings, trade shows and photo shoots. We assist clients with realizing their vision by helping them utilize our gorgeous, one-of-a-kind inventory. We’re essentially Pinterest come to life, fueled by caffeine and driven by our love of the latest trends.
Our ever-expanding inventory has been carefully curated with finds throughout the United States and our recent press includes Style Me Pretty, Green Wedding Shoes, The Knot and Richmond Magazine.
We pride ourselves on our creative and positive atmosphere and are eager to invite a design-savvy and fabulous intern to join this crazy thing we call work.
A Day in the Life of a P&J Intern
Life at Paisley & Jade is fast-paced and constantly evolving, so specific duties of the intern vary each semester but could include:
-Processing and preparing inventory orders
-Refreshing pieces on an as-needed basis
-Assistance with the set up and breakdown of shoots and events
-Shooting and cataloging new inventory
-Social media maintenance and projects
-Weekly blogging on company’s site
Interns will also have the opportunity to roll up their sleeves each week 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 10-15 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.
What’s We’re Looking For
Eligible participants must be at least 18 years of age, a current undergraduate or graduate college student taking this internship for credit, have a valid driver’s license with auto insurance and is available to work occasional weekends. Prior experience with PC’s and Macs is preferred and proficiency with Microsoft Office and WordPress (or a similar blogging platform) is required.
