Dream Jobs @ Step Out Buffalo

About Step Out Buffalo

Step Out Buffalo is a relatively new, pro-Buffalo media company. We write about events, restaurants, and entertainment happening in Western New York as well as produce our own events in Buffalo and beyond.

We’re a business that’s still in start-up mode and looking to work with individuals who are self-motivated, have positive attitudes, love stepping out and exploring our city, and are more interested in the community and less in a plain ol’ 9-5 gig that makes them hate Mondays. As professed Buffalovers, we want to add people to our team who love Buffalo/WNY and are interested in taking part in the resurgence of our region.

Internships

Are you a passionate go-getter (yeah, we went there) with a good work ethic and a love for Western New York? (All of which far outweigh the need for experience in our humble opinion.) If you like social media, marketing, event planning, public relations, graphic design, Instagramming everything and anything, writing, editing, keeping up with *all* the changes on every platform ever, piña coladas and getting caught in the rain, or just want to get some great experience at a local startup (we highly recommend this for anyone who might want to be a fun-loving entrepreneur when they grow up), feel free to drop us a line! #runonsentencesarefun

Some of our events include Cork Head Wine Festival, Buffalo Bloody Mary Fest, and Fall Makers + Shakers: Boozy Artisan Market. (Disclaimer: “full-blown” means we’re busy af, not that we have a ten-person event team and an amazing office.) If you want/need event planning experience, we can help (and could use your help!).
