The interns will research and analyze business problems of current and potential customers, find solutions to those problems using The Daily Cardinal’s digital and print media capabilities, prospect for new customers, develop presentations, and sell those solutions to customers. You will have the opportunity to build relationships with campus area and city-wide businesses and not-for-profit organizations and engage in other business-related activities as necessary.
