TourSmart™ is a high-quality virtual marketplace for travelers and tour guides to come together with the purpose of enriching the travel experience for all.

TourSmart Inc. is seeking four extremely creative Research and Social Media Interns with unparalleled writing skills to assist with our expansion into the D.C.& Boston metropolitan areas. The interns will gain valuable hands-on research experience traveling all over the D.C. & Boston metropolitan areas and getting to know the city like no one else. Interns will also learn how to effectively utilize social media as a secret weapon for viral marketing campaigns. In turn, the interns will be exposed to a fantastic Start-Up work environment that places value on creativity and teamwork. The internship will require 10-15 hours per week of work from September - February (duration of internship is negotiable). Our internships are PAID at a stipend rate and in addition we provide some support for travel expenses. We are a remote company and thus the majority of work will be done in the field rather than in an office environment. Additionally academic credit can be provided with the partnership of your college or university.
