Atelier Ashley Flowers is growing more quickly than expected and I am always looking for new ways to innovate and depart from the status quo.
I find that college students are enthusiastic hard workers with a wealth of knowledge to share when given the opportunity.
If you are passionate about community over competition while maintaining a business-oriented focus, this internship may be a good fit for you.
This position would give the right person a great degree of creative responsibility while also managing regular day to day tasks.
You will also be able to use me as a reference and gain invaluable insight into the inner workings of a small business. (Oh, you'll also have some fun and gain community connections:)
