Better Jobs Intern

Share this post!

OVERVIEW

The Better Together team seeks interns to assist with the growth of the Better Jobs program in Florida and across the United States.

The ideal candidate should have demonstrated communication, organization, and customer service skills. He or she should be a self-starter who is comfortable working remotely, has a demonstrated ability to analyze problems and find creative solutions, and thrives when challenged.

Better Together works to end the root causes of poverty, dependency, divorce, and child abuse by leveraging the power of the local church to provide struggling families with supportive relationships and meaningful work. Once properly supported, families can achieve independence, stay together, and thrive.

Better Jobs, a ministry of Better Together, offers churches a fully functional workforce ministry to help them help their community find hope and dignity through employment. Better Jobs trains, equips, and supports churches in establishing, maintaining, and growing this ministry in their local community. To learn more about the Better Jobs program, click here.

CULTURE & FIT

Success at Better Together depends not only on a person’s skills but also on their ability to fit the culture of Better Together. If you answer “yes” to all the following questions, you may be a fit for the team if your skill sets match the requirements below. The vast majority of those who don’t get hired or don’t last at Better Together is due to a lack of fit with these values, so they matter. Be prepared to have very candid conversations about them in our interview process.

  • Do you have strong administrative skills? Are you detailed oriented and able to prioritize and manage multiple tasks at once?
  • Are you a creative problem solver?
  • Do you welcome big goals? Do you believe the sky is the limit?
  • Do you see opportunities instead of obstacles?
  • Do you strive for excellence in all that you do even when no one sees your work?
  • Do you wholeheartedly agree with our mission and belief that foster care is not always the best option for children and families?
  • Do you believe that true charity is a hand-up and not a handout?
  • Do you have empathy for parents in crisis?
  • Do you understand poverty and consider yourself culturally competent?
  • Are you good at working as a team to solve problems? Do you believe that no job is beneath you, and are you willing to help others as needed and be a team player?
  • Are you quick on your feet and able to work on a fast-paced team?
  • Do you seize opportunities to try new things or improve a skill that’s relevant to your company or role?
  • Are you able to build meaningful relationships (creating trust) with people you only see face-to-face a few times a month?
  • Are you aware of your strengths and weaknesses, and do you practice getting help from others to mitigate your weaknesses?
  • Are you always trying to improve and do better?
  • Do you have pride in your work—even if no one is reviewing it?
  • Are you self-disciplined and able to work in a remote setting?
