About CarShare Guy

At a time when technology has challenged and altered the way our communities conduct business, the expectations of a personalized and convenient experience are enlightening all of us in how we work and leisure. The automotive and transportation industries have obviously been no stranger to this, from ride-sharing, to self driving technology, and everything in between we are seeing tremendous changes in how we get around. Carsharing has found its place in the markets, offering just another option to the mesh of available products for travelers, neighbors, and now yourself! CSG’s mission is to provide the existing and potential community members with the right tools, resources, and partners that will make their experience as an owner or as a renter more enjoyable and successful. Our intent is to strengthen our community, so that it can remain a community that is able to overcome hurdles, provide savings to travelers, and of course passive income towards financial freedom, all while keeping you up to date on anything carshare related.

Hours​:

CSG allows for a flexible schedule. We are committed to working with the individual to find a happy work/life/school balance that fits the needs of both entities. While we will track the hours the Editorial Assistant Intern puts in to report back to CofC, we are more interested in the completion of tasks.

Compensation​:

This is an unpaid internship with the potential of turning into a paid internship or even a team member based on performance. We are pleased to assist in any kind of college credit recognition by a university or program’s internship criteria.
