Overview

ProMatura is in the process of relaunching its marketing initiatives, and we’re looking for a skilled, creative, hard-working intern to join us!

We’re an international research firm that specializes in age-qualified housing (aka senior living—active adult, independent living, assisted living, etc.). Our research helps shape housing for people 55 and over throughout the world.

The intern may potentially pitch in on the editorial side as well, proofreading documents.

Pay is $12 an hour—about 12 to 18 hours a week. (We’ll work with you to determine what works best for both your schedule and our needs.)
