    The Rebound Hospitality group based in Northfield, Minnesota is searching for a student who is excellent at creating and editing webpages using Wordpress.com and its tools.  The vision of Rebound Hospitality is to create a portfolio of historic inns while preserving, maintaining and enhancing their character and history.  Currently we own and operate three historic hotels (including the Archer House here in Northfield), one lodge in northern Minnesota, and a restaurant and bar in Faribault (Alexander’s Supper Club & Pub 31).  All of these entities have websites but with varying degrees of look and feel and usability.  The scope of work is to overhaul many of these and create a site for Rebound Hospitality.  The ideal student would have excellent technical skill, be creative in marketing and is driven/flexible to work outside of regular Carleton classwork for a growing, for-profit company.   Compensation and/or creation of an internship/externship experience is negotiable.  Please contact Brent Nystrom ’92 (bnystrom@reboundenterprises) or 507-581-6715 at Rebound if you are interested.
