Business Development Internship
ISIC - International Student Identity Card - is the only internationally recognized and accepted proof of full-time student status. Established in 1953, ISIC has an annual distribution of 4.5 million cards in over 130 countries and is accredited by UNESCO.
We are seeking a Business Development Intern in Boston to help re-position the brand to be more of a lifestyle card that students would buy to use around their school/home and not solely for study abroad. The ISIC card acts as an ID card, but also has over 100,000 discounts globally.
We are looking to bring in more Boston local discount to our digital platforms and we need an intern to make these connections. This is a part time role with pay based on number of discounts the intern signs on, with no cap on how many you can get.
STA Travel holds the Exclusive Representative Licensed Authority to sell, distribute and develop ISIC in the UK, USA, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Singapore, Thailand, Germany, Austria and Switzerland, so this intern will be hired and paid through STA Travel.
