AARP’s membership is aged 50+, but we work on issues that matter to all families.
Be warned: You will not hone your coffee-making skills at AARP (but maybe coffee drinking ones.) You’ll be part of a social media team that is entrepreneurial, creative and quirky. We appreciate nerdiness, memes and we inhale media like we’re drinking it out of a fire hose.
Applicants must have the ability to work independently as well as collaboratively, exercise initiative, maintain a positive attitude, and be available to work a minimum of 20 hours a week with our awesome social media team at our office in Chinatown/Penn Quarter. Intern candidates must also meet the following requirements:
- Actively attending an accredited college/university.
- Have a GPA of 3.0 or higher.
