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 in start-up mode 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. For more info about Step Out Buffalo, visit stepoutbuffalobusiness.com.
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, snapping everything and anything, writing, editing, keeping up with *all* the changes on Instagram, 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! #runonsentancesarefun
Now Accepting Summer 2018 Internship Applications
- Marketing – Are you interested in learning more about marketing in the year we *actually* live in? (Shout out to Gary Vee!) Apply to work with our marketing team and do just that. We market our website, events, and clients. Must be curious, willing to learn, and try new things constantly, because that’s what marketing is all about.
- Event Planning – Step Out Buffalo now has a full-blown events division, meaning we plan a bunch of events that we would want to go to and have a good old time doing it. Some of our events include the Buffalo Bloody Mary Fest, Buffalo Cocktail Classic, and Buffalo Pierogi Fest. (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!).
- Editorial – Are you a good writer? (In the sense that you write stuff that’s funny and makes sense, not in the stuffy, college paper way…) Has someone in addition to your mom told you that you’re a good writer? Do you have a blog or write for a school newspaper? Do you read stepoutbuffalo.com because you like the style of writing and think to yourself, “this is my jammmmm!”? Well then, by all means, apply! Oh and one last thing… you should love Buffalo and love researching dining and entertainment in Western New York, obv.
All internships are unpaid and are available for school credit in return. We require a minimum of 10 hours per week in the office, located in Hamburg, NY, and a total of 120 hours minimum. We promise to give you some killer opportunities to build your portfolio and learn by *actually* doing.
How to apply:
