Paid Social Media Summer Intern

Are you looking for an actual internship this summer that will allow you to make real impact? Do you have a passion for the healthcare field and a soft spot for the elderly?


Centers Health Care is the largest post-acute healthcare continuum in the Northeast, with over 30 skilled nursing and rehab facilities in New York, New Jersey, and Rhode Island.  We are looking for three driven Social Media PAID interns to join our team.  One internship is based at our facility in Patchogue, L.I., one is based in our facility in Bushwick, Brooklyn, and one is based at our corporate office in the Bronx.  


This will not be a stereotypical internship – no coffee runs, no filing, no paper-pushing, no busy work.  You’ll be the voice of facilities in social media.  Working closely with the department heads, including the administrator, recreation director, rehab director, and social work director, you will need to quickly learn the ins and outs of what makes each facility tick, and what resonates on social media.  You may be chronicling the stay of a wheelchair bound resident and how our renowned rehab team will get him walking and back home.  You’ll hear our resident’s stories, uncover amazing histories, and share them with the community.  You'll hear from staff and find out what they love most about their job. All of your efforts should result in the facility gaining a bigger audience and overall better reputation in its community. The social media intern will report directly to the social media manager, who's committed to making sure you'll get a mountain of experience. If you want to learn more about social media and marketing, this is the internship for you!

Prior experience managing social media for businesses highly preferred.

  • Write 1 blog post a week on a healthcare related topic
