Wanted: Alberta BoostR Intern!

Do you love Alberta? More importantly, do you love, and are passionate about local businesses in Alberta? Are you the go-to person when it comes to recommending a hidden local gem – because you’ve “been to them all”?

Everything from arranging tweetups and planning events, to content creation and social media engagement – all with the aim to build a passionate community of online BoostR’s (funders)! Oh, and by the way…this is a part-time position with flexible hours and this is a paid internship – enticing, isn’t it?
