Talent Community Intern

Part time position in Remote

Job Description

Inkwell is seeking a Talent Community Intern to join our growing team. This position is part-time and remote but the ideal candidate will be local to the NYC area and available for occasional in-person meetings.


As the Talent Community Intern at Inkwell you’ll support the end-to-end recruiting experience for each of the Inkwell stakeholders -- candidates, clients and our growing community of referrers, The Well. You’ll follow processes that increase the efficiency of our internal recruiting operations, improve the quality and diversity of our referral network, and ultimately drive successful and lasting placements for our clients.  

Supporting the Head of Talent Community and Client Delivery,  you’ll serve as key recruiting support on each search – sourcing, evaluating, and  vetting candidates for each client. You will support “The Well” community - Inkwell’s network of 10,000+ high-powered women who move in circles among other amazing women - with a focus on promoting and celebrating diversity across cultures, nationalities and industries. You will be a contact point for existing Members, ensuring they have a fulfilling, rewarding and engaging experience with Inkwell. Inkwell will provide training and ongoing support and development for all aspects of this role. 

Your Responsibilities:


  • Support search needs, including scoping roles, drafting job descriptions, promoting searches, sourcing, and screening candidates

  • Source candidates through the Inkwell database, referral network, traditional and non traditional sourcing channels

  • Support the Head of Talent Community and Client Delivery, Chief of Staff, and Founder in business functions as needed


  • Support Inkwell’s strategy to grow The Well focused on increasing and celebrating diversity while also ensuring the makeup of The Well community matches the needs of our clients (the companies using Inkwell as a recruiting tool)

  • Serve as a point of contact for members of The Well

  • Support occasional events, both in-person and digital, that foster relationships and increase engagement amongst Members

  • Identify opportunities to curate meaningful content and programs that add value to the community


  • Support the review, update and organization of all current and historical recruiting documentation

Your approach:

  • You get stuff done! You’re not afraid to roll up your sleeves and get into the weeds. You know how to keep things moving forward

  • You are trustworthy. You show up on time, you come prepared, you do what you say and your team members know they can always count on you. People enjoy working with you because they know they can trust you 

  • You’re a people person. You love to develop meaningful relationships with all types of people. You pride yourself with your ability to get along with all types of people. You’re a great listener! 

  • You’re a passionate team player.  You thrive in a creative, inventive, fast-paced start-up environment, with people who are passionate about their work. You're excited to work cross-functionally with other departments and enjoy bringing people together to achieve a goal

  • You’re obsessed with the details. You’re embarrassingly organized. You care about the smallest details -- from triple checking your emails for typos to taking diligent notes. You go the extra mile to ensure the job is done well

  • Inkwell Core Values: Integrity, Sharp, Yes-Attitude, Hustle, and “Sparkle.” You inspire others to trust you with your honesty, reliability and lack of BS. You are quick to understand, anticipate and address both challenges and opportunities. You add positive energy to your interactions, even if you’re saying no. You figure it out -- proactively and creatively -- and get it done. Being a badass is hard work

Your experience:

  • Proactive self-starter comfortable working in a fast-paced environment

  • Community management, marketing or customer service experience

  • Exceptional people and communication skills

  • Experience developing social media and marketing content is a plus 

  • Experience at a high growth company or start-up experience is a plus
