Moxie Communications Internship

I'm reaching out to see if you knew of any students (or anyone) moving down to LA that might be looking for an internship. I currently work with a great agency in Marina del Rey called Moxie Communications Group, and we're in search of a fantastic intern. This position is paid, hands-on, and there's definitely room for growth! Know it's kind of a long-shot asking around in San Jose, but I thought I'd utilize my resources one way or another :)

 

Some of our current clients include Evernote, Casper, Dollar Shave Club, MasterClass and Trivago. Happy to send over any additional info if anyone is interested!
