WHY INTERN WITH IT’S A KEEPER?

         This is not a coffee-making internship.  You have the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience in web development and interactive media to help build your portfolio.

         You’ll work in a flexible environment that allows you to meet your goals.

         You can dive into our crazy food world – test our recipes and learn about food and cooking!

         You’re part of a team.    We’re a small company, and that means that when you work here, you’re not “the intern”–you’re part of the team.  Plus, we’re all about having fun. We are an energetic, innovative team that laughs a lot.

         Your ideas matter.  We hope you’ll learn a lot here, but we’re also open to learning from you.  It’s a chance to be at the start of something huge. We’ve only made a small dent in what we plan to do. We are pursuing big dreams and we’ll give you the chance to explore yours too.
