There are a few DBA internship opportunities and each will provide the student with many unique opportunities not available in the average office setting. The Bethlehem office of the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce works directly with the City of Bethlehem on their marketing and community redevelopment initiatives. With the economy slowing down individuals’ spending downtown, our new marketing initiatives are vital and particularly exciting to our merchants. The intern will not only network with members of the City’s administration, but with owners of small and large businesses in the greater Bethlehem area. The experiences and relationships gained through this unpaid internship will certainly equip any student with desirable professional qualities and set them apart in an ever-increasing difficult job market.
Below is a list of duties:
•Meet and build relationships with the small business owners of the Historic & Southside Districts.
•Data entry into excel documents of information and email addresses gathered during events that add to our e-newsletter mailing list and e-promoting.
•Learn how to put together a marketing plan for event strategies in the two downtowns of Bethlehem.
•Travel within Bethlehem to different locations to promote with flyers, posters, rack cards..etc…
