Yelp is a website where over 138 million people (monthly) read and write reliable and trustworthy reviews of local businesses (restaurants, bars, shopping, just to name a few) from across communities in the US, the UK, Canada, France, Germany, Austria, Spain, Italy and so forth.

Community Managers in over 100 Yelp communities are responsible for marketing, PR, other social media outlets, event planning, e-newsletter campaigns, and various odds and ends on the local level — but they can’t do it alone! Yelp Interns play an integral part in supporting activities designed to rally the Yelp community both online and off.

  • Practical experience with new media marketing techniques
  • Plenty of opportunities to shadow and spend time with the Community Manager including weekly meetings for coaching and professional development
  • A rich network of personal and professional contacts
  • As much Yelp marketing schwag as can be swallowed

  • Helping develop, organize and execute marketing events (parties, happy hours) and guerillamarketing programs (festivals, street ambushes, etc)
  • Co-managing the Twitter handle and Facebook page
  • Keeping Yelp clean with on-site projects, writing and researching
  • Online community building
  • You live to write and write to live and may help craft super Yelpy copy
