Women in Technology International (WITI) is an online networking company for women (and men) in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. We deal with all levels of professional careers.
The company was founded in 1989 and was created through email correspondence. Over the past 27 years, WITI has developed alongside internet technology. WITI is currently in a restructuring phase, and the editorial team needs help with editing, writing, stylizing, archiving, and organizing.
The internship is not just a publishing internship; we have several facets to our editorial team, including content, social media, and multimedia.
Interns will learn HTML and editing skills. They will have an opportunity to network with executives from professional and established companies, such as IBM or VISA (plus many others). We have opportunities for publication on our website and through our newsletter (which pulls roughly 50,000+ readers).
Our interns will gain a professional work experience. The skills will effectively complement a resume and will help build confidence in a positive work environment.
ResponsibilitiesInterns will be given (at least) three projects to complete within a four-month timeframe. Most projects change from internship to internship due to the progress we make with our previous interns and our current employees.
Project sizes and the number of projects will be based on your desire to learn new skills and the availability to work with your schedule. We are looking for interns who can organize and write, and who are detail-oriented.
Editing and writing will be a part of the internship, but technology is also part of the internship, if only for HTML. An interest in technology is not needed for this internship.
Intern must be able to work independently and have determination for completing the projects given to them. We are looking for someone who has an interest in writing and editing. Technology skills are not required, but helpful. We will be able to teach HTML, editing, and our organizational skills. A desire to learn on the job and take criticism is essential. Any level of college student can apply, as long as they have a GPA of 3.0 or higher. For the purpose of mandatory weekly phone calls, English language skills are a must.
