Not many internships are the exact same. Some demand working for an exciting company or organization. . .but simply getting to stuff envelopes or upgrade email lists. Others do not have a brassy title or brand association, but gives you plenty of hand-on experience you can actually use.
But a brand new internship opportunity doesn’t fall into either category. Rather than organizing old documents, this one involves analyzing many different weed products, and pays nearly $1,000 a month. Here’s what to know.
Cannabis shipping agency Emjay is hiring a summer intern to critique each and every product offering on their site. This isn’t a joke, nor a drill. The internship will last for 3 weeks, and contain the following, according to a blog article on the company’s website:
This person will be responsible for composing descriptive, unique, and creative copy and testimonials about a broad array of cannabis products. Edibles, vapes, flower, and more–the types of products will operate the spectrum. The person in this role should know cannabis culture, what makes consumers tick, and be in a position to describe Emjay’s ever-evolving menu of product offerings.
Specifically, the duties of the internship include:
- Reviewing every product on heyemjay.com (There are far more than 600.)
- Communicating with editors
- Writing quick, scannable, and also accessible bullet points of detail regarding cannabis products also as more form testimonials
When Thrillist first broke the news of the internship on June 1st, it was advertised as paying $1,000 a month. Then, three days after, Emjay came out with their own blog article about the position that does not mention the $1,000 annual salary. On the contrary, it says that the job pays $15/hour for around 16 hours a week–meaning that when a person worked the highest 64 hours every month, they would make $960 (which, in equity, is fairly close to $1,000).
The Monday-Friday place does not come with conventional benefits such as health insurance, but does include an employee discount, and the capability to work on a flexible program.
According to Emjay, the ideal candidate should:
- Know over indica, sativa, and hybridvehicle. What about terpenes? What about the rainbow of cannabinoids which make each breed unique?
- Be Reliable and attentive to detail
- Have a passion and hunger to try out the most advanced cannabis products on the marketplace
- Be a great team member with a collaborative soul
In order to use to be Emjay’s summer intern, you need to be at least 21 years of age, a California resident, also based at the Los Angeles or San Diego areas, since there are in-house elements to the job.
