Part-time position at a store in Mattapoisett, MA

I have become aware of a local business that would like to hire a business student part-time this summer and this could be an internship for credit, assuming you enroll in the summer internship course and complete all it's requirements (cost about $1,200).  Otherwise, a student who is interested in retailing, local agriculture, and the food industry might find this to be a good work experience for the resume.

How on Earth is the name of the store.  Their "mission is to connect local people to local agriculture & promote a food system that will support/sustain our local economy and our ecosystem."  According to the store's manager, they not only "stock amazing regionally sourced products, but also serve up a delicious lunch (and dinners come summer time)."

Ideally this team-member would assist the manager in her day to day operations. Included would be tasks such as updating Facebook/Twitter, design ads & kick start an Instagram! Additional time would be spent on the retail floor as well. 

How on Earth is a welcoming environment for anyone eager to learn about and promote our local food system. We are an energetic and youthful collective (of all ages) that I am honored to consider all my family. It's a wonderful working place for someone honest, hard-working, passionate, outgoing and can add a spark of inspiration to our community. 

If you are interested, send a resume and cover letter via email to: Mary Ann Buckley
