Meet the Hired Hands Interns!
With the school year kickin’ back into gear, we’ve got ourselves a great crew of interns! Whether you’re a coworker, small business, or non-profit in town, these interns can help you with small, one-time projects ranging from market research to data entry.
How Hired Hands Works
The Hired Hands Program operates out of SPUR Northfield. If you have a small project for an intern, just stop by or email our offices with a project proposal (a couple of sentences detailing your project). We’ll assign you a great intern, then you’ll be able to meet and talk with them about the project! Next, interns will begin working on your project ASAP. Once the project is complete, the intern will deliver the results according to your specifications. Don’t wait to get your small projects out of the way!
Meet the Interns!
“Hey Everyone! My name is Camille Morley and I am a Junior at St. Olaf this year studying economics and political science with an emphasis in international economics. Through my studies I have developed a strong interest in international marketing strategy and other facets of international business. This past summer I was fortunate enough to intern with the U.S. Department of Commerce through the U.S. Commercial Service. While exploring the world of exporting, I worked on industry and country analysis reports that could help small businesses make exporting decisions, for example, what countries might be a good match for their product. I really enjoy working on analytical projects where I can research and get my hands on some data to help explain a question/problem we are trying to solve! Outside of school and work you’ll probably either find me on a lake with our sailing team, distance running, or cooking something in my tiny kitchen. I’m very happy to be back at SPUR this year and can’t wait to work with you all!”
“Hello! My name is Johnny Zapata and I am a rising junior from Carleton College. I have been working with SPUR for about a week and I really enjoy being part of it. I am an economics major with a concentration in French and Francophone studies. Some of my hobbies are performing spoken word poetry, breakdancing, and occasional DJ-ing. Currently I am organizing plans to be able to start a program that helps youth interact with their creative side and explore careers within fields that they did not think were possible. I believe that everyone has a passion and that sometimes it takes a little exposure to different environments to reveal that passion. I have strong leadership abilities and I always enjoy a challenge. I am looking forward to getting to know my peers better and to be able to hone abilities that will last a lifetime.”
“Greetings! My name is Katelyn Regenscheid, and I am a current junior at St. Olaf College. At school, I study English and Psychology with a concentration in Gender Studies. I am beyond excited to delve into my internship at SPUR, and my first week has been great. You can find me at the coworking center on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, and I am eager to start working on projects for the coworkers! Given my majors, you can tell that I love researching, composing, styling, and editing written work. In addition to working on publications, I look forward to working on and learning from new projects for the coworkers. In short, I see any project as a great one, so let’s work together!”
