Your duties will consist of helping with the fit testing of shoes on office employees, filling out fit/wear test reports with the feedback received, and presenting the reports to the development team. You will occasionally be asked to help box up shoes and assist with data entry. Anyone with a passion for footwear would be a great candidate for this internship!
