Each year, UWKC hires Loaned Executive Interns, enrolled in a graduate program, to work as a fundraiser and community representative for United Way’s annual campaign.

This internship provides an opportunity to grow personally and professionally. You will have the opportunity to develop and hone skills in sales, customer service, project management, public speaking, and team building. As an intern, you will gain a unique perspective about community relations and development as you interface with businesses, government agencies, and other nonprofits. You will also gain valuable community knowledge and contacts, be a part of a positive team environment, and help raise funds to support your community.

The successful candidate must currently be enrolled in a graduate study program; having fundraising, sales, or marketing experience is preferred but not required. Daily use of an insured vehicle is required, as a big part of this work will be conducted offsite.

  • Duration of position: This is a 14-week commitment from September 9 to December 13, 2019
  • Hours: Part-time/20 hours per week
  • Schedule: Must be able to work a flexible schedule as companies often have campaign events outside of typical business hours
