From day one, I felt like I was part of the Intermark team. Throughout our entire internship, I knew the office was rooting for us. This summer, I was presented with real work and real challenges, but there was always someone I could call on to teach me or give me feedback. People within the office wanted to see me grow, learn, and succeed. Because of this internship experience, I feel equipped to face the real world and confident as I begin my career. Intermark made a lasting impression on me, and I’m extremely grateful for the time I spent as an intern.

Art Direction Intern

A love of art and an eye for design are both necessary, but you’ll also need to be a great thinker who picks apart briefs. And once a concept is approved, you’ll have to bring it to life. Your mom will want to put your work on the fridge, even if she doesn’t understand it.

What a truly unexpected experience! Presenting to Porsche USA was surreal. I feel so lucky to have spent a summer working so closely with such an amazing brand. I feel like I’ve learned more than I ever could have in school by being truly immersed in a project for a client that was so interested in hearing what we had to say. I could not be more grateful for the experiences I’ve gained and for the things that I’ve learned at Intermark. I feel as though I’ve truly grown as an art director and as a person.

Copywriter Intern

You’ll need to love the written word, because after a concept is approved, you’ll be writing, writing, writing across print, radio/ television, online and other cool stuff. And if you make your mentor jealous, you’ve done it right.

I really enjoyed my time at Intermark. This has been a great experience and I’m so grateful for it. I’ve learned so much about Copywriting and what it’s like to work in an agency. Being in an agency is cool; and being around so many smart people has had great impact on me.

I can’t believe our internship has come to a close. This summer has been an amazing opportunity full of professional growth and new friendships. As a recent graduate I knew a lot of terms and textbook applications to problems, but interning at Intermark has given me unparalleled real world experience. Working as a Digital Account Service intern has allowed me to serve many roles and interact with a variety of clients. I always felt of value and part of the team here! Whether it was staying late to work on the presentation for Porsche USA, making conference calls, or even just having lunch with the other interns there is not a moment of this internship that was not of value to me. Thank you Intermark for a wonderful summer!

Media

Works with the Media Department to assist in buying local advertising on TV, radio, outdoors and digital. Works on a team to create a full media plan for a client, as well as using research tools to better understand target audience’s media consumption habits and create strategic plans to reach them.

I can truly say that my internship this summer with Intermark Group was an experience of a lifetime. I was able to apply all of my knowledge from college to this practical experience and I couldn’t have asked for a more valuable way to learn before entering into the real-world. This internship allowed me to hone my skills, especially in my field of study (Media), perform, learn, and apply research, practice public speaking, and much more all while being surrounded with an intern team where each individual was qualified, bright, and like-minded. This summer has also taught me that it is possible to start something completely from scratch, and with hard work and diligence, see our project all the way through to the finished product. I stand here now with a smile on my face and honored that I got to intern with such a prestigious advertising agency, work with a fantastic client and team, and fully acknowledge that hard work really does pay off.

Public Relations Intern

Public Relations

Learns the basics of PR including writing press releases, planning events, pitching to key media contacts and developing strategic plans. Helps generate ideas for social media content, campaigns and contests while monitoring online mentions and reviews.

I honestly cannot put into words what this summer has meant to me. I have learned more this summer than i have in three years of college. Getting to work with Porsche, for me, was quite literally what dreams are made of. Being able to learn about the brand and impress someone of that caliber really gave us confidence that this internship is truly unmatched. I will be forever grateful for the people at Intermark not only because they are extraordinary people, but they are incredible teachers. Intermark is making it very difficult to go back to school, but I will take everything I have learned and make y'all proud!

Automotive Analytics Intern

Automotive Analytics

As an automotive intern you are tasked with coming up with new and innovative ways to enhance clients SEO (search engine optimization). While doing that you would also handle technical fixes within the website to make it run more efficiently. In addition, you would give input on current strategy and would hypothesize ways to improve upon it. Over the course of the summer you will have gained knowledge in the search engine optimization field while being able to show the results in an analytical format.

My key takeaway from the Intermark experience was the ability to meet so many nice and supportive people. This was my first time in Alabama and I wanted to turn a new page in my life and try new experiences. This summer was incredible graduating from college and exploring Europe were memorable, working here at Intermark was invaluable. I explored Alabama and Georgia and see what the deep south was all about and what it had to offer. Being from South Florida you are in a bubble of New Yorkers and you are not exposed to that authentic southern hospitality I felt from everyone here. Between learning new platforms in my department to preparing a presentation to Porsche it feels surreal the amount of experience and knowledge I can take with me in future endeavors that was just over the course of a few months. I can’t thank everyone enough and this experience will forever be an unforgettable chapter in my life.
