NOW HIRING 2021 FALL INTERNS [REMOTE]!
Social High Rise was established in 2012, and we've had the pleasure of working with dozens of fantastic interns for over seven years. We've worked hard to develop our internships so that individuals truly learn new skills and come away with valuable experience to add to resumes. In January 2021, we revamped our internship program so that it can be performed remotely, due to COVID-19 restrictions. Interns will still receive the same high quality and interactive experience with our team in our new remote work environment.
