Looking for an Intern

I need some help.

I know it's kind of late in the game to be looking for a summer intern - but it's New York, and in New York, people have all kinds of crazy schedules & situations that might just allow for this kind of thing.

Ideally, our intern is a college student looking for some hands-on experience building and running a new small business. And since this is a stationery company, it would be great if this person was also creatively inclined. Things our intern will be responsible for will include: card packaging, order filling & processing, and submitting press packets to publications and wholesale catalogues to prospective retailers. Through all of this, our intern will see how orders are taken and processed, how we bill clients, how our designs start as ideas and end up on our cards and invitations. Since this company is basically just me - this person will be intimately involved in everything that happens with Linda & Harriett in the next six weeks. And it's an exciting time here - on the heels of DailyCandy press, having fulfilled all our Stationery Show orders, and continuing to get more retailer business every week.

I'm thinking this will be a 6 week internship, 3 days a week, flexible days, fleixble hours but probably around 5 hours per day, and although the internship is unpaid, I'll gladly pay for subway fare and lunch.

If you or anyone you know is interested, email me at with your resume - and tell me a little bit about yourself.
