Position Filled – Intern positions available

Posted by Damien on March 30, 2011

So we’re really lucky and the perfect fit for our design needs walked in the door and we’re able to take down the “Help Wanted” sign in the window as far as Graphic/Visual design needs.

However, we’re still on the lookout for outstanding Interns. In particular Research + Writing Interns.

We have a mammoth project for you: to help us tell the story of our Future of Fish project from all our research. You can learn a little more about the project here:

For your time here, you’ll get the unique experience of a small design studio that works on large-scale complex problems. In particular, you’ll be helping to publish an incredibly important project which was run in partnership with Ashoka & the Packard Foundation. This project is over now, but work still continues directly from this in the efforts to launch viable and critically needed social ventures. So you’ll be directly contributing to making a change to our oceans.

These boards, in the photo below, need to be turned into a highly readable, approachable story about the work we did in the Fishing Industry. Look inspiring?

Future of Fish BoardsAn amazing Research & Writing Intern

Here in Sausalito, we’re looking for one of those interns we talk about for the next ten years, comparing every future incoming person to them.

This is for an ongoing Internship – though we’d consider Summer Internships for College credits. (If we can do that.)

The research intern we’re looking for would be a super-creative, highly collaborative, hardworking individual. We’re interested if you’ve had experience in secondary research, creating research briefs and presenting findings to teams or clients.

You’ll be unbelievable at hunting down a particular piece of material. We want to meet you if you’re the type of person who doesn’t stop at looking at a photo, but tries to make out what’s been written on a post-it that is in the photo. We’re going to be excited about meeting you, if you’re the kind of tenacious bloodhound who doesn’t stop until they’ve gotten that much-wanted piece of information.

You’ll also have experience in synthesizing, and creating insights from human centered design research (ethnography etc) and be extremely effective at communicating your ideas and concepts to other.

The successful intern candidate would be an excellent writer, communicator and have a great deal of empathy for design. It would help tremendously if you were able to show previous experience of how your research contributed to projects, or how you were able to synthesize your work into insights.

Please send along, by emailĀ (to jobs at centralstory dot com), examples of your work, experience and an outstanding cover letter.

Thank you- and we really look forward to hearing from you.
