Marketing Communications Intern Title: Marketing Communications Intern Department: Support Location: Goodwill Industries of Central Indiana, Inc. Indianapolis, IN Type: Full_Time Position #: 139364 « Back to Job Listings Description: Indianapolis Metropolitan High School needs at least 430 students enrolled in order for the school to meet its financial obligations. Each year, the school is challenged to attract new students and retain current students. One of the challenges for Indianapolis Met is that there are no other charter schools within a close proximity that serve students in the 8th grade. Because the school doesn’t have a natural relationship with any middle schools in the area, the school can’t fill open spots from a specific group of students but rather has recruit from the broader community to fill the roster by the enrollment deadline. Another significant challenge is the perception and lack of information to the public about charter schools. Highlighting the strengths of Indianapolis Met will help parents better understand that our school is an excellent option for students who will thrive in a smaller school environment with individual attention and benefit from our advanced career and long-term planning. Indianapolis Met needs to adjust its marketing message and make other necessary adjustments in order to compete with voucher options, other charter schools, and public and magnet schools. Goodwill Education Initiatives, and more specifically Indianapolis Met, will benefit from the profile of all relevant sources for efficient and effective strategy formulation, implementation, and continued monitoring for any adjustments.
