NextFab Digital Marketing Intern

This Deadline Expired: Friday, May 14, 2021

NextFab is looking for an enthusiastic and self-motivated individual working towards a marketing/ communications degree (a rising junior, senior or recent graduate) to be their digital marketing intern for the summer. You would work alongside the marketing and sales teams to execute marketing strategies, including social media campaigns, virtual events, content management, and advertising, to help drive the NextFab brand as one of Philadelphia and Wilmington’s premier makerspaces. If you’re willing to get your hands dirty (or at least a little into the sawdust), have some creative chops, and are driven towards all things marketing, this may be the internship for you. Bonus points if you’re involved with the maker, creative, or artist community (or have a passion for it!). 

NextFab is a network of membership-based makerspaces that helps grow the artisan entrepreneur and tech innovator community, by providing its collection of members access to machinery, education, and professional services. NextFab’s combination of traditional tools and digital technology helps its members solve problems to make things better. NextFab offers users education on and access to manufacturing and prototyping equipment, as well as professional design, production, and placemaking services for individuals’ fabrication needs, and is associated with the maker culture and DIY culture. NextFab owns and operates three locations in the mid-Atlantic Region (South Philly, North Philly, and Wilmington, DE).

The person in this role will be working remotely, with some on-site workdays required. This position is 30 hours per week with an hourly rate of $10/hour and will run from late May/early June until late August/early September. In addition, this paid opportunity comes with a NextFab membership for the duration of the internship.

Elaine M. Erne, co-founder and co-director of Star Wheel Printers, received her BFA from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA and her MFA from Tyler School of Art, Temple University in Philadelphia, PA.  Erne’s drawings and prints have been featured in numerous invitational and juried national exhibitions. The Lives and Traumas of Stuffed Animals is a series of comically disturbing depictions of Mr. Bunny and his friends under siege. The series is made up of very large graphite pencil drawings, woodblocks, etchings, and lithographs. Although there is a playful side, the underlining theme is fear, cruelty, and survival.  In recurring distressful situations people often become like dolls, presenting a steady happy personae no matter what is happening.  Though the circumstances represented in the work are not real, no stuffed animals were hurt in the making of the work, they capture the aura that surrounds a person who has no control but will not give in.
