We need an intern to learn how to build/craft small pet products from our office in Santa Monica. We make and sell an eco friendly ocean-like product to take care of fish (and soon for other pets and gardens too), and ship it around the world, so this is a great chance to see how your crafting skills can help with actual business. Cutting, sizing, drilling, gluing with epoxy and silicone, and maybe even painting or electrical soldering. Also learn how to do final assembly, and quality checks of other people's work. If you liked building models as a kid, you'll like this. And you can listen to your own music the whole time if you want. We have several patents and trademarks, and are well known in our line of product, so you'll be handling real world situations.
If you happen to read and write languages besides English, especially Dutch, Swedish, French, German or Italian, then tell us! Portuguese, Arabic, Farsi, Chinese and Japanese are also welcome. You could help us with translations, or with marketing to those countries. We are also happy to have you if you are here on a travel visa, work visa, school visa, J1 visa.or J2 visa, if you have already moved to the Los Angeles area.
We need at least 10 hours a week, but more is available if you want. This can be a few hours each day, or one long Saturday, however fits your schedule the best. Very flexible hours available, from 8am to 7pm, and even Saturday is available. We are in the middle of Santa Monica, walking distance from Santa Monica College, and a short bus ride from UCLA. Bus stops are one block away, and the train station is three blocks.
Internship stipend pay starts at $3/hr, and after 80 hours will go to $5/hr. Full training is provided. Resume' credit given too. There are no beginning and ending dates. Overall you will learn a lot and have a good reference for your job searching later!
