Part-Time Internship, Content Marketing, Early Stage Startup Aspire

by at 4:17 pm

Aspire: Building a Better Workplace

Part-Time Internship, Content Marketing, Early Stage Startup
www.aspire.is
Who We Are
Aspire provides access to curated experiences to power your office culture at the click of a button. With the Aspire platform, you can provide awesome office experiences that reflect your people and your brand without all of the headaches that come along with it. Maybe that’s organizing an unforgettable lunch for your next All Hands meeting. Or building a wellness program that employees at all fitness levels can enjoy. Whatever it is, we’ve got you covered. Our platform learns about what makes your culture yours, and makes it easy to take tangible actions to sustain that intangible asset over time.
We were a member of the enterprise technology incubator Acceleprise, have raised angel and seed funding, and most importantly, were recently recognized for being one of DC’s Coolest Companies 🙂

What We’re Looking For
We are a startup. And we’re still very much in our rapid growth phase. We are about a year and a half into our official start as a company, so things are moving very quickly. What we’re looking for is an intern who is excited for that kind of environment. Someone who is looking to really experience what it is like to be at an early stage startup. A self-starter who has a continuous track record of adventure, hard work, and being a top performer.
You’ll be working with our marketing team to continue to flesh out our content marketing strategy and materials. You should have strong writing and speaking skills. You’ll be developing blog posts, webinars, e-books, and other pieces of content marketing.
Your goal by the end of the internship will be to produce the following work products: 15 blog posts for publishing under your name on our blog; 5 e-books or webinars; and increasing our mailing list by 5x.
Because we’re such a small team, your help may sometimes be required in other aspects of the business, like client management and sales. So we promise that you’ll never be bored!
This is not a traditional internship at a consulting firm or a government agency. Being in a technology startup is very different. But, if this kind of work is for you, you’ll know it – and you’re probably the kind of person we’re looking for.
About the Internship Position
● Location: We have a flexible work policy, but you must be in the greater DC area.
Our offices are in Dupont Circle, right above KramerBooks.
● Time Commitment: 8-10 hours a week. We expect you to spend at least 1 day /month in our office.
● Qualifications:
○ You should have strong writing skills and a proven track record in producing top-quality work.
○ You’ll be helping to grow a company from its infancy into a big business. We want people who can think strategically.
○ We want self-starters who will do whatever is needed. Previous startup experience is a big plus.
○ On a small team, everyone must be at the top of their game, always. We want people who can consistently perform flawlessly under pressure.
This position is unpaid, but school credit can be provided if eligible. We will compensate for any regular travel costs as part of this job.
Benefits of the Role
● Extremely dynamic, fast-paced work environment. You’ll be put in the heart of the early stage startup and get to experience what startup life is all about.
● We will work with you to build a work plan that is meaningful for you and your career goals.
● And most importantly, we’ll have a lot of fun!

How to Apply
Please send your resume and a cover letter and a writing sample to marcy@aspire.is, along with your availability during the upcoming week, to be considered for an interview. We will be reviewing applications on a rolling basis.

MPS HRM Launched a Pilot Mentoring Program

by at 11:23 am

MPS HRM

Kick-off event for the mentoring program, August 2015

Back in 2013, Sara Woods was a student in the Master of Professional Studies in Human Resources Management program. Even though she was happy with the classes and the education she was receiving, she identified the need for mentorship within the program. That is why Sara created an informal network of Mentors throughout her time in the program, but continued to envision a formalized program to aid fellow students.

Fast-forward to 2015 when Sara and her fellow student Mary Scully joined forces and developed the Georgetown SHRM Mentorship Program. Both of them, SHRM Board Members, were energized by the current and alumni students’ desire to create a greater sense of community in the MPS HRM program.

MPS HRM

Sara Woods and Mary Scully

According to Sara now is the best time to introduce some of the Georgetown SHRM initiatives, such as the Mentorship program, and to engage the student body. Sara goes on saying that: “Establishing a mentorship foundation when students first begin the Georgetown MPS HRM program, helps set the tone and establish a mentoring culture.” Sara and Marry’s primary aim, when creating the program, was to create a legacy of mentorship as the Georgetown MPS HRM program continues to grow and evolve.

Key data

It has been over a month now, since the start of the program, and the feedback, both from the mentors and the mentees, is more than positive. Both sides are truly engaged and seeking new and interesting ways to benefit from this experience. The creators of the programs are really happy with the result and say that for them the most important thing is that “students feel as though they are gaining new knowledge from their mentorship bond and that they feel more engaged in the SCS community.”

While the results are yet to come for the pilot, we feel the main goal – to create a strong relationship between the alumni of the SCS community and current students in the program – has been overwhelmingly achieved.

MPS HRM

Mentors and Mentees discussing the program.

All interested students and alumni from the program, if you are interested in being a part of creating a legacy of Mentorship at Georgetown, email Georgetown-SHRM Student Chapter President Mary Scully at mms290@georgetown.edu to learn how you can make a difference.
