ABC Web Link Paid Internship


Description


ABC Web Link is looking for an intern to fill a multi-faceted web role. You will be working closely with experienced senior web developers and you will gain valuable experience in all aspects of a modern web shop. This is a 6 month position with an option to renew for a further 12 months. Training is provided and no prior experience or education is required.

About ABC Web Link

ABC Web Link is a customer oriented provider of web services located in Prince George with customers all over the province. We provide website hosting, domain name registration, as well as website design, construction, and support. Until January 2014 we existed as the web division of ABC Communications. However, though we still work very closely with ABC Communications, we are now independently owned and operated. Although ABC Web Link is small (you will be the third employee) you will be working with many more ABC colleagues in the same office as well as across the province.

Responsibilities

We are a small outfit and you will be asked to perform any number of tasks as the circumstances dictate. These may include but are not limited to:
    • Website design & construction using HTML, CSS, PHP, JavaScript, and other web technology
    • Website Content Management
    • Domain Name Registration & DNS Management
    • Customer Relationship Management, Inbound sales, Needs Assessment, Quotes, & Invoicing
    • Server Administration
    • Photography

Requirements

This job requires extremely strong problem solving skills. Candidates will be judged primarily on their ability to diagnose issues, learn new technology and apply that knowledge to solving problems they have not encountered before.

A passion for using computers is a must. A career in web means you will be using a computer basically all day every day.
You will also be interacting with customers on a regular basis so good communication skills must be demonstrated.

Some parts of this job will utilize your artistic creativity. Any artistic experience, particularly in the visual arts, are an asset.

Training and mentorship is provided; no prior experience, or education, is required. However, past experience in technology, web, or related fields will be considered.

We must occasionally visit a client at their location so a drivers license and vehicle are an asset but are not required.

Schedule

This position is a half-time position for 20 hours per week worked during normal business hours. If you are eligible for the Get Youth Working program the position will be for 30 hours per week. Depending on your performance, and the requirements of our business, available hours may be increased.

Remuneration & Contract

You will be compensated at a rate of $12/hour. Additionally, if the 6 month contract is successfully completed there is a $780 completion bonus.

The contract may be renewed for an additional 12 months if and only if both parties agree. Wages and hours for the additional 12 months will be negotiated at the completion of the initial 6 months.

Closing Date

This position will remain open until the right candidate is found.

How to apply

To apply please email Jeff Paetkau (jeff@abcweblink.ca) or drop off a resume at our office at 502 4th ave. We will confirm receipt of your resume, however we will only follow-up further with those candidates whom we determine may be a good fit for this position.
