Looking for an Intern. Or Two!

Creative Design Intern Needed!

We are looking for a friendly and easy-going intern who is able to learn quickly, work independently; is detail oriented and is also very interested in the wedding industry, photography, social media & marketing. This is a perfect job for a student who seeks an internship with a smaller amount of hours during the school year, and more work in the summer.  This is a 3-6 month unpaid internship with lots of opportunity to gain a wealth of experience and connections, and may lead to a hired position.   Hours are flexible, approx. 12 hours per week for school credit if necessary. 
You will be working on various projects ranging from company collateral to invitations & branding.  We’re looking for a creative person, preferably a student, who has a keen eye for style and design, and who loves crafty projects, pretty flowers, weddings, photography and the like. In this position, interns will be exposed to a variety of tasks and will gain experience in a broad range of graphic art skills, including typography, layout, photography, web design principles and branding awareness.

  • A familiarity with Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and other social mediums
  • Web knowledge, including an understanding of Dreamweaver, Blogger or Wordpress a plus!
  • A design aesthetic which complements our work
  • Well-organized - Great organization skills, willing to work with company file management
  • Willing to learn - Self-Starter, takes the lead but is a great listener
  • Good communication skills (both written + verbal)
  • Must be reliable, efficient, detail-oriented, thorough, work well under deadlines.
Preference will be given to students and candidates located in Los Angeles and Orange County but all will be considered. Flexible availability.

  • Be part of the decision making process, not just being told what to do
  • We value new input and appreciate a new set of eyes and ideas on everything we do.
  • Business casual environment with a fun entrepreneurial spirit.
  • Build your portfolio with real-world work, both printed and digital web designs.
  • Gain experience working with all types of clients, and different styles/specs for each.
  • Between the hours of 9AM-4PM but a flexible schedule is preferred as deadlines arise & we might need to stay later.
  • Some work can be done from home, after initial training has been completed.

This position is great for a design student, we are within walking distance of Golden West College, and Coastline, Orange Coast College and Cal State Long Beach are all very close by. We are anticipating 10-15 hours/week now, and the days & hours can be customized with the right candidate, but we will be seeking a candidate able to offer more availability during the summer months.

To apply, email intern {at} cherishpaperie {dot} com. Email a short summary about yourself explaining why you want to intern with us and any applicable experience you have (courses, scrapbooking, photography, other hobbies). Please include your availability, and indicate if you are looking for college credits.

A formal resume is not necessary, but including samples or photos of some of your work or hobbies is appreciated. A  link to your blog, website, or portfolio work samples for us to review (that you think match our design atheistic) or an inspiration board that describes your personal style, but would be a big plus.

This job will remain open until we find the perfect person. Or  two.

Due to the number of applications we receive, we will only contact potential candidates. Thank for your interest in working with us!
