To be an intern at FvF, you must have the following characteristics:

  1. You have a keen and active interest in social media and digital communication, having at least some professional experience with it for brands or projects.

In addition, you should:

  • Understand the Freunde von Freunden brand & community.
  • Have some experience writing professionally, and editing the work of others
  • Have familiarity with the usual software tools (Dropbox, Google Docs/Drive, WordPress, Slack etc.)

You should be Berlin-based or willing to relocate. We require a fluent English speaker with strong copywriting skills. German comprehension is a plus. The position is paid and full time.

  2. 2-3 work samples of your work.
  3. A CV or a link to your LinkedIn profile (a portfolio is also nice, if you have one).
  4. No more than 500 words on a trend in social media you think will be huge in 2017, and that is crucial for brands to be aware of.
