Fryday Internship Program

Nov 19, 2016 Posted by Anders Östlund
The Fryday Summer Internship is an annual 10-week summer program designed to provide highly motivated undergraduates with a representative experience in event management, online marketing or franchise concept development. The Program seeks intelligent, mature individuals with the desire and flexibility to work in a flexible environment and learn on the job.

What We Are Looking For

Since its inauguration in 2010 Fryday has developed a vast knowledge and experience in professional networking, community building, event management, event marketing, online marketing, business development, franchise development and other related areas.

Fryday has a very decentralized structure where the headquarter is in Stockholm, the back-office in Falun, Sweden; the development office in Kiev, Ukraine and the communities managed by Fryday’s Representatives in their respective cities across the world.

Fryday’s franchise organization is its core business. The Representatives apply for the rights to Fryday’s brand and system in a particular city and manage Fryday’s events there making money from entrance fees, corporate partnerships, online advertisement and more. Being a Fryday Representative is also an excellent way to gain experience from Fryday’s fields of expertise mentioned above. Developing Fryday’s franchise offer and the advantages of being a Fryday Representative is a very important part of Fryday’s activities.

Fryday is also continuously developing its business services that are targeted primarily towards small and medium sized businesses. These services are designed to ease online marketing and business administration for companies with limited in-house knowledge and resources.

Fryday wants an intern to be able to make a case for which one of Fryday’s areas she or he is interested in gaining experience and knowledge from. We want an intern who will be able to grasp Fryday’s business model, the core benefits to the franchisees and clients and will be able to properly analyze and add value to this model as Fryday believe that is the best way to gain knowledge from the fields Fryday is operating with and has its core competence in.

One of Fryday’s priorities is to expand to new markets while also gaining a larger market share on the markets it is already present in. For an intern at Fryday it will be imperative to learn and analyze how Fryday can continue to grow its business using its core competences as listed above to do so.

 

What Would an Intern Be Working On?

As a core part of Fryday’s team, its focus will be both on incorporating the right professional with complementary skills to the team and mentoring that person’s development in what will likely be a number of new skill-sets.

The knowledge and experience that an intern can develop with Fryday can be, depending on the intern’s particular interest:

  • Online marketing
  • Event management
  • Marketing
  • Franchise concept
  • Event concepts
  • Online services
  • Event marketing
  • Business processes
  • Webb analytics
  • Expansion and market penetration

The intern will take on a tailor made assignment within any of the above mentioned fields and will present the outcome of that assignment to Fryday at the end of the internship together with a summary of knowledge and experience gained during the internship.

 

Qualifications:

Undergraduate - Junior

Superior analytical skills

Strong interpersonal skills and ability to articulate ideas

Solid communications skills, both written and oral

Strong work ethic

Enthusiastic, outgoing and achievement-oriented character
