Available Careers

Each web site is run by a manager who has worked his way up through the web direct brands ranks. Each manager then teaches interns the day-to-day operations of their online store. Managers are responsible for everything from order fulfillment and customer service to marketing and site development and vendor relationships.
Web Direct Brands also has technical and marketing staff to assist all managers with project realization. During the first semester the intern will be assisting a manager with all aspects of work. If invited to return for a second semester, an intern may have the chance to develop their own start-up site. These sites are developed using the same principles and management as the existing, flourishing web direct brands e-tailers. Past the second semester, the opportunity exists for further development within the web direct brands team.
