Position Description:

When companies are interested in buying Cornerstone products, many of them will send us a questionnaire called an RFP (Request for Proposal) because they want to know more about us. An RFP will contain questions about the company, how the products work, and obviously pricing.

That's where we come in! The Proposal/RFP team is responsible for managing these questionnaires from potential clients and make sure they're completed on time with a high level of quality.

You'll want to be on this team because:

  • Learning. That's what we sell and it's no different from what we do. We'll help you build strategic skills that you can take anywhere. You'll arrive and leave each day with a sense of purpose and accomplishment having gained real-world experience.
  • Exposure. We work with practically every Cornerstone team: Sales, Finance, Legal, IT Security, HR…you name it. You'll have plenty of opportunities to meet people and build new relationships.
  • Food. We celebrate monthly team and birthday lunches. And donuts.

In this internship you will...

  • Learn about the proposal process and leading practices.
  • Partner with proposal writers from the beginning to end of the RFP sales cycle.
  • Coordinate and prep incoming RFP's for daily team meetings.
  • Help with printing, binding and other proposal production activities.

You got what it takes if you have...

  • Strong writing skills, and even stronger people skills.
  • Multi-tasking talents.
  • The ability to interface well with other teams, but also work independently.
  • Tons of enthusiasm and a can-do attitude!
