  3. PROMOTING AMP CONTENT: Grow our following across all tools through not only shareable content, but also boosted / paid content and ads.

Interns work 8 hours/week for a minimum of 12 weeks beginning in January 2018. We are a virtual community, so intern will work virtually using their own computer. Interns are required to join weekly team calls, at times agreed upon by the entire team early in the semester.
