Internship - 2016
Discover Downtown Middlesboro is a non-profit organization that is focused on the revitalization of downtown Middlesboro. Recognizing the importance of providing opportunities for professional development, we have openings for interns to assist in the work of our organization.
Throughout the course of the internship students will be under the direct supervision of our Executive Director Isaac Kremer. Most work will be done out of the DDM office in City Hall, though occasionally work will require you to report to locations throughout the downtown area and beyond.
The internship will be for a total of 15 weeks. In order to measure your performance and give valuable feedback, we'll arrange for a performance review at 4 weeks, another mid-way through the internship, and then a final review at the end of the internship. Payments will be made on the 1st and the 15th of each month. A W-9 will be provided for you to complete prior to starting the internship. You will be responsible for all local, state and federal income tax, self-employment or other tax liability.
A few major initiatives DDM is working on presently include:
- Performing predevelopment work on Elks Home including preparation of a historic structures report.
- Conducting a survey of downtown businesses and updating data on job creation, business creation, and investment.
- Developing a trail system that connects the downtown with the Cumberland Gap National Historical Park and provides recreational opportunities for residents and visitors.
In addition to this work there will be responsibilities in other areas including grant writing, volunteer management, communication, and other administrative duties as assigned.
Those with an interest in the position should forward a resume, brief letter of interest, and at least two writing samples to Isaac Kremer at downtownmiddlesboro(at)gmail.com. The position will remain open until a suitable candidate is found.
