The Downtown Troy BID is offering multiple internship positions within a thriving non-profit organization. This opportunity involves project-based work within a tight-knit team that includes the Executive Director, Communications Administrator, Board of Directors, committees and other interns.

Each internship position will greatly contribute to the city of Troy’s economic development, tourism, beautification and cultural functions through a variety of responsibilities and tasks. The intern will gain hands-on experience interacting with diverse array of BID members, including small business owners, property owners, citizens and public officials. Each intern will work between staff projects and several committees that include marketing, development, beautification, fundraising and executive. Some work will involve direct outreach to member institutions via telephone, email and face-to-face interaction.

There are many moving parts and projects in our office that also requires the ability to work independently. Interns may also assist with various marketing, program development, and event planning tasks. Last but not least, interns will also help on variety of general day-to-day duties that help the BID function.
