Internship with Tom and Jenny's

About Tom & Jenny's:

Tom & Jenny's was founded by a dentist, Dr. Jenny, and her husband Tom to create amazing sugar-free candy for people with taste buds.  Our recipes were perfected by a James Breard pastry chef so they're not only guilt-free, but they don't compromise on taste.  Each piece of caramel contains just 20 calories, 40% fewer net carbs than sugar caramel, and nothing artificial.  And best of all, our plant-based sweetener actually reduces cavity-causing bacteria and acidity.   

We've been growing rapidly and need to expand our content creation and marketing team.  We've had great experiences with Duke students and grads and would love to continue that partnership.  Please help us get the word out.
