Downtown Philadelphia isn’t the only happening area in Southeastern, PA (although we do love it); the Greater Philadelphia area is home to plenty of jobs, restaurants, shops, and night life! If your priority is a short commute to work, one of these areas, whether it be Philly, Newtown, Willow Grove, or New Hope, is close to you. Even if you don’t live nearby, these jobs and internships are worth any commute!

If you answered yes to both of those questions, then this is the perfect internship for you! As an intern on the Meet Philly Tour Street Team at Campus Philly, you will introduce regional college students to resources in Philadelphia via Campus Philly’s Insider Guide to Philadelphia. Other responsibilities will include setting up tabling materials, greeting students, and speaking knowledgeably about Campus Philly’s mission and programs at tabling events and photographing events. This is a fantastic opportunity to meet other college students while helping them to lay their roots in the City of Brotherly Love.
