Spend Your Summer Interning with Buy Nearby

Want more than just an internship? Spend your summer working at the front line of the fun and valuable Buy Nearby campaign. Our Buy Nearby interns collaborate, travel, gain real-world experience and promote an important Michigan cause. Lansing-based Michigan Retailers Association seeks responsible and outgoing interns to work with the Buy Nearby Guy mascot at community events – parades, festivals, farmers markets, store openings – around the state. Interns are needed for the mascot duties and the mascot’s handlers/spokespersons and schedulers. The work includes weekend and evening appearances throughout Michigan, as well as in-office responsibilities, so a flexible schedule is a must. You may work part-time or full-time. These are above minimum wage, paid positions. Great experience for communications, marketing or public relations students and others. Candidates should send a resume to MRA’s Rachel Schafer at
