Internship: YumZing (Social Media/ Marketing)

The mission of Whiteboard is to contribute to the community of entrepreneurs and innovators in the Northeast, and to help build that community.  To make that happen, we are featuring internships from community memebrs in order to help them find team members to become more successful.  If you’re looking for an intern – get involved! If you’re looking for an internship, check out this great opportunity below.

YumZing is a food review tool that began as a website and has since been implemented as a mobile application.  YumZing takes the guesswork out of visiting a restaurant by allowing users to review specific dishes and even share photos of their experience with their friends, family, and ultimately, the world.  YumZing works to share the news about top-rated dishes with hungry diners, along with tips on what to avoid.

We won first place in Innovation Quest’s ‘IQ Contest’ for 2012, and have been featured in the media as an up-and-coming business.  We’re aiming to become the next cool start up!
