If you want to work in the office of the future, create original prose, truly make a difference and love animals, this may be the internship for you.

Available for winter term, this is a virtual internship (you work from your personal office/computer) to assist with national marketing of organic products for dogs. This small, entrepreneurial company is based in Minneapolis, MN. The business owner has many years of business leadership and experience, and started Bedtime4Dogs because of an experience with a rescue dog.

At Bedtime4Dogs, we love animals (you may have guessed), believe in holistic nutrition and sustainable living. In 2009, we adopted a rescue dog. She was mostly calm until bedtime when she became, well, all puppy. Thinking our household may never sleep again, we needed to find a way to get her to sleep (without chemicals) and our first product was born. Bedtime Bones is an organic, chamomile bedtime treat for dogs.

We don’t use any unnatural fillers, or wheat, soy or corn. Our packaging is made from recycled paper with no glue or staples so it can be recycled anywhere. And yes, the company we use makes our paper packaging with wind power.

Responsibilities and Qualifications

In your position you would demonstrate your creative writing skills from the comfort of your own workspace (Yes, this is the virtual office of the future.) For a 3-credit internship , you would work the required time to create blog content, bedtime stories, press releases, newsletters and social media content.

Candidates ideally will have an interest in writing and be self-directed creative types with great attitudes.

Successful candidates can expect a LinkedIn endorsement, reference and many networking introductions. You will learn directly from the owner, who has more years of experience in marketing and new product development than she will admit.
