The Nitty Gritty
Length: ~3 months (flexible start and end date; ideally early June to early September)
Open to: Designers, copywriters, strategists, or any combination thereof
Compensation: School credit for those in school; pay negotiable for those not in school
Commitment: 30 hours a week, Monday through Friday
Thanks for checking out our internship program. Twice a year, for three months per session, we bring on a team of three interns—one designer, one copywriter, and one strategist—to work alongside our team of about 30 employees.
During your three months with us, you’ll be producing real work for real clients. You’ll also get feedback on your work from various members of our team, and you’ll leave here better at your discipline than when you arrived.
Less obvious is the way you’ll be expected to work with us. Because we are in the business of problem solving, it’s crucial that you have the ability to think creatively about a client’s business problem. That means generating ideas and seeing them through to fruition. What does the client really need? What will get them there? How do we convince them it’s the right approach?
These are just a few of the problems we spend much of our time solving. And we arrive at those solutions together, in meetings, on the whiteboard, as a team. This is not a work-from-home job.
If this sounds like you—a collaborator with a passion for culture and a knack for finding fresh solutions to complex creative problems—then we’d love to see what you’ve got. Find your discipline below for more specific information. When you’re ready to apply, click the button to the right, upload your resume, and tell us a little bit about yourself in the box below. We’d love to see your portfolio, but no sweat if you don’t have one.
