Internship Spotted by Locals
Love travel & city life? Want to turn your passion for social media / marketing into a job, but need more experience on your CV? Looking for a flexible, location independent internship? We’re looking for you!

The company
Spotted by Locals is a series of blogs, PDF city guides and mobile (iPhone, Android) apps with up-to-date tips by handpicked local writers ("Spotters") in 56 cities in Europe and North America.

Spotters live in the city they write about and speak the local language. All Spotters are selected and met in person by founders Sanne & Bart van Poll.

By experiencing a destination like a local, travelers learn about the local culture and habits. The Spotted by Locals founders and bloggers aim to make a contribution to a better world through more intercultural understanding.

Location
Sanne & Bart (and editor Laura) work from a big table from their home in Amsterdam, or from coffee shops around the world with wifi. Students will work with them at home in Amsterdam, or where-ever they have an internet / Skype connection available.

Spotted by Locals is not a typical company with an office, or standard working hourse. The founders are traveling frequently. When we're not in Amsterdam we will communicate via Skype, e-mail, etc. We are looking for independent, intrinsically motivated students.

Copenhagen local (and Spotter!) Stefan Hedegaard did a 3 month internship for Spotted by Locals in 2013 from Amsterdam / Copenhagen. He would love to share his experiences / answer your questions too. Please contact Bart for contact info.

Working hours
40 hours per week, 3 months or longer.

Tasks
The contents of the internship depend largely on the interests of the student. We have loads of interesting work in many fields! Roles:

  • Managing Social Media Content (blogs, Twitter, Facebook etc.)
  • Managing Social Media Marketing - promoting our apps & blogs
  • Managing Spotter recruitment - finding new Spotters and managing processes
  • Boosting App sales (social media, app store, SEO)
  • Creative marketing: design advertising materials, company videos, virals….
  • Research assistant: SEO / app sales analysis
  • Research assistant: market research about target audience

What can the student expect to learn?
The Spotted by Locals founders will do everything in their power to help students learn as much as possible. In terms of responsibility, the sky is the limit if students prove they are competent and eager to learn.

What Spotted by Locals expects
We expect ambitious students who are very eager to learn, and work independently. The owners are of course fully available during your internship either via Skype or mail.

Other:

  • Fluent or near-fluent in English - written as well as spoken
  • Knowledgeable about and very interested in social media
  • Students must bring their own computer
  • If students are interested in staying in Amsterdam, they are responsible for finding and paying for accommodation. Spotted by Locals will of course do their best to help search!

If you’re interested, or would like more information, please contact co-founder Bart van Poll.
