1. You seriously love training leaders on how to build a culture where everyone feels welcomed, connected, and engaged.
2. A friend sent this link to you thinking ‘Swift Kick‘ was the title of a new Chuck Norris movie.
3. You desperately need an internship…any internship.
To be clear, if you nodded your head at #2 or #3, it’s better to turn back now. Sorry we’re just not that into you. We swear it’s not you, it’s us. Don’t worry you’ll find love…somewhere. If you found yourself drooling while reading #1, look below at our current internship opening and if it calls your name, let’s talk.
Length: 6 months
Submission Deadline: Nov 16th, 2017
Start Date: January 2nd, 2018
End Date: June 30th, 2018
We’re seeking one non-zombied undergraduate or graduate students to join our team in NYC (or virtual, though less desired) as interns, to be a jack of all trades, to help us train leaders on how to build a world in which everyone feels welcomed, connected, and engaged within their community and organization. From national events like the International Free Hugs Day and Random Acts of Kindness Day, to a hands-on role with our 5x award winning Dance Floor Theory leadership training, you’ll be reporting directly from the front lines to make the biggest impact possible. Paper pushers need not apply!

About Swift Kick:
If you Google “Swift Kick,” three results appear…
Well, check out this first hand account from our previous intern.
This is a unique opportunity for an ambitious, multi-talented individual who wants to see the inside of a fast-moving company and work closely with the founder.
The ideal candidate is a student leader or graduate student with student leader experience who is willing to work hard and do a wide variety of tasks in order to get their foot in the door, learn, fail, succeed, and make connections. We are a small team, so you’ll work directly with Tom, the Founder of Swift Kick and Lead Facilitator as well as everyone else on the amazing team.
The level of work you’ll do is only limited by your capabilities. Are you capable of: Designing a presentation? Researching a market? Creating a financial model? Great, as long as you’re also willing to make copies and run errands if needed. Essentially, you should be overqualified, but not have a problem doing assistant-like tasks if needed. In exchange, you’ll get unique visibility into a unique company, a great learning experience, and the chance to move on to do many other things with a strong endorsement…unless you mess it up :-).
While an in-person internship will provide you with the optimal experience, it’s not required as we are not able to support interns with any housing or moving expenses.
