Able Jobs Looking for Office/Media Coordinator Intern (Paid)

Here is an email I received from a local company (Able Jobs) - a Fall River, MA company.

"I am looking for an intern with social media and interpersonal skills. I am looking for someone to prepare our job postings, update our blogs and web sites, and build our nascent email newsletter. While in the office, the intern will also have to handle incoming calls, make arrival checks as requested, and administer the preliminary application and assessments for in-office interviews. If the schedule permits, the intern might be invited to go to job fairs. I expect that the intern would work perhaps 20 hours a week and the position is a paid one. The intern would have to wear business casual and otherwise conform to acceptable office protocols."

"A successful social media coordinator will have a good telephone voice, be able to write (and spell) well and be a multitasker. Because of the nature of our work, the intern must be a meticulous about documentation. Despite this, the intern must be able to listen effectively and, where necessary, deliver bad news professionally. "

Interested students should send resumes and cover letters to Eileen Wheeler Sheehan, CSP at:
