internship opportunity : social media

Are you a change-maker with an internet habit? A do-good tweeter with a penchant for handbags? One Mango Tree is on the hunt - we're looking for a Social Media Intern. You can be based absolutely anywhere (even Timbuktu!) - as long as you have reliable internet and a love for fair trade, organic, and economic empowerment, you're eligible.

Here's what we're looking for:
  • A really good Tweeter - we need some help in growing our following on Twitter. It's an excellent tool to help grow our retail customer base, but we also want to be THE source for interesting and exciting news in fair trade, organic cotton, eco-fashion, and market-based poverty alleviation.
  • A Facebook Group Grower - just like on Twitter, we need some help growing our Facebook group, and coming up with creative and fun ways to use this tool.
  • A blog-o-rific writer - do you like to write? We need someone that can add content to our blog on a regular basis, related to the topics mentioned above (fair trade, organic cotton, etc.)
  • Get others to write about us - there are tons of people out there writing about the above topics - help us get recognized by connecting One Mango Tree with bloggers and journalists to increase our presence online and in print
The point? You'll get to make a difference without leaving the comfort of your computer. Every additional sale means more jobs for women in Northern Uganda, more kids in school, and micro-level changes in the household that add up to big changes in the social fabric here (read: PEACE).

You'll work very closely with moi (OMT Founder and Director, Halle Butvin - based in Uganda) - via email and Skype - first to assess our current social media, and then to make suggestions and move forward. This is a results-oriented internship, so you must be able to plan and deliver results, in the form of large increases in followers (we're talking thousands) on Twitter and FB, and resulting increase in retail sales and web hits.

Sound like something you'd like to do? The One Mango Tree Social Media Intern is an unpaid position, but you will enjoy 50% off retail price on all One Mango Tree products, all the time.

Send me an email ( explaining your interest, plus your CV and some proof - let's see your blog, Twitter stream, writing samples, etc. Show us what you've got - and come be a part of One Mango Tree. Apps reviewed on a rolling basis.
