Studio Intern Mentorships


MEMENTO & MUSE is a custom gift design studio based in North Carolina, serving businesses and other gift-givers nationwide. We've been featured by publications such as The Glitter Guide, Southern Weddings, & Cottage Hill.

If you're a college student interested in marketing, design, and/or business -- and you enjoy working with your hands -- an intern mentorship at MEMENTO & MUSE could be a perfect fit for you!

Our intern mentorships are a unique opportunity to work directly with a small business founder and learn about numerous other artisan entrepreneurs. You'll experience a behind-the-scenes glimpse of both MEMENTO & MUSE's daily challenges and triumphs, as well as our pursuit of a big-picture growth strategy...with plenty of opportunities to help create something beautifully meaningful with your own two hands.

Qualified candidates will be a college junior, senior, or graduate student, and must be able to commit 8-9 hours per week (afternoon to early evening) in a Raleigh, North Carolina studio.

I look forward to hearing from you!
