Title: Exit Genius/Social Media Analyst Intern

Using social-media platforms effectively can increase a dealership’s fan community by up to 50 percent.
This internship gives students valuable insight into a premium brand’s customer orientation and overall exposure to the automotive industry. Successful candidates will have the ability to learn vehicle technology, such as navigation systems, Bluetooth and driver-assistance features.
