Zealous Good is looking for a storyteller/reporter to join our Chicago team!
Do you believe everyone has a story to tell? Do you enjoy meeting new people, hearing and sharing their stories? Want to make an impact with a startup that’s focused on making Chicago a better place?
This is the position for you!
Zealous Good is a social enterprise that connects people and companies with extra items to local non-profits in need. We’ve been featured in Crain’s Chicago Business, Mashable, Chicago Sun Times, and RedEye to name a few and we’re a growing startup.
We are looking for a storyteller/reporter who can help gather and tell the amazing stories of some of the donations we connect every day. We want to present “stories of good” to our donors and the public. This person will talk with and interview our nonprofits and donors to learn about their Zealous Good experiences and help spread the word via video, photos and blog posts. In time, the Zealous Good storyteller will build meaningful relationships with both charities and donors through in-person meetings, video chats, email and phone.
This internship will entail great experience and real responsibilities. We give our interns real projects and hold them accountable for completing them…. but we also have fun while working. We’re a young, entrepreneurial team and have fun while we make the world a better place. If it
sounds like a fit to you, apply!
Also, please note this position is part time (10-15 hours a week), flexible, and unpaid. We offer course credit for those whose schools accept internship credits and we also have bonus opportunities throughout the internship.
The Zealous Good office is located in Chicago. Ideally, you can easily get to the River West area of the city.
