Job Overview

The ASHRO Lifestyle Brand Marketing Internship will provide a unique hands-on internship with the Ashro brand that encompasses marketing, creative and branding. This internship begins in June and ends in December 2023.

Here at Ashro, we embrace our role as a niche clothing and lifestyle brand for the Black woman. Like our customer, we are dynamic, multi-faceted and ALL IN. We love fashion and style, but we also believe that beauty is as beauty does. In other words, we are nothing if we are not living generously. This is exactly how our customer, The Ashro Woman, lives. It is our privilege is to give her a catalog and website that’s just for her: a place to get inspired and dream about what her best self looks like—and what it might look like in the future. In everything we do, we celebrate her: her culture, her faith, her heart and her style. Our bold, targeted fashion assortment is built upon Afrocentric looks, church attire and coordinated head-to-looks she can’t get anywhere else. As a lifestyle brand, we also offer her treasures in the categories of home, gifts and beauty. Our styles, fit, models, categories and content are all a reflection of who The Ashro Woman is.

Who are we? We are hard workers, team players, collaborators and we passionately value our customer. Does that sound like you? If so, we’d love to hear from you!

What You’ll Do & Learn:

This internship offers a unique perspective, focused solely on one brand and one target customer. We are seeking an intern who will be as passionate about this bold and vibrant customer as we are.

Your experience will offer exposure to brand strategy including digital, social media & content marketing. There will also be projects related to customer engagement and market research. Finally, there may be projects related to copywriting and creative insights depending on your areas of interest.

Another unique facet of this internship is participating on the Ashro Community Council where we evaluate and choose charities to support positively impacting the Black community. This includes some key non-profit partnerships that you will help facilitate and nurture.


What It Takes:

We are seeking an intern who will be as passionate about this bold and vibrant customer as we are. Ideally you will be working towards a bachelor’s degree in Marketing, Retail & Consumer Behaviors, Entrepreneurship, Management, or similar degree.

In addition, you must have:
• At least Junior standing; recent graduates will be considered
• A cumulative GPA of 2.80 or higher
• A strong desire to learn and professional drive
• Demonstrated project and self-management skills
• A passion for the marketing industry and its best practices
• Excellent verbal and written communication skills
• Have a basic understanding of business strategies and different marketing techniques

We value onsite collaboration so this role requires onsite work in our Monroe office Tuesday - Thursday. There is generally flexibility to work remotely for up to 2 days per week. To take advantage of the remote work option, you must have reliable, high-speed internet and appropriate home office ergonomics.

Please note this position is not eligible for Visa Sponsorship.
