Company/Organization: The Argan Tree


Were in search of a creative and energetic Strategic Partnerships and Account Manager intern, who is looking to be a part of an exciting social enterprise in the beauty sector. The primary responsibilities for this internship (detailed below) entail developing leads and contacts with retail partners for The Argan Tree, while maintaining and improving current accounts with existing retail partners. The intern will work directly with the founder and two other interns in our workspaces in the Boston, MA / Cambridge, MA area.

Through this role, the intern will be a critical part of our team and will gain hands on experience in (but not limited to):
Following as many leads as possible to expand The Argan Tree’s coverage within a variety of different outlets
Developing non-retail partnerships with prominent organizations and individuals to promote brand awareness
Managing existing relationship with retail and press partners

This is a great opportunity to hone your creativity and communications skills while gaining direct, hands-on experience in marketing, social media and writing within a fast growing a sustainability-focused cosmetics startup. You will develop a solid understanding of the startup life cycle and work independently within a team of motivated, down to earth professionals. The founder and president of The Argan Tree will directly support your development, by offering you guidance and mentorship throughout the program. We are an ambitious startup with big plans and, if successful, you will have a big role in our company as it moves towards realizing its vision.

At the end of this internship, you will have a firm understanding of B2B (selling to retailers)—from creating new relationships to managing and building them over time. These partnerships are critical to any company, small or big, and you will have firsthand experience of managing the entire process at our rapidly growing company.
