My favorite part was getting to see how all departments work together and are intertwined. This experience challenged me, but I feel prepared for the real world!

Art Direction Intern

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

Copywriter Intern

Copywriting

Teams up with the art director to concept and execute big, brilliant ideas on time and on brief. 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.

Assists with day-to-day interaction and communication by working with various departments, including, but not limited to, engineering, digital strategy, analytics and user experience, to ensure all aspects of clients’ work is completed and executed with a focus on mobile applications, website development and other digital assets.

I had the best summer working alongside so many creative and hardworking people. Throughout the internship, I saw real-life applications of what I've learned in the classroom and gained exposure to the ins and outs of an advertising agency. As the digital account service intern, I assisted with everything from website design to building analytics dashboards to meeting with clients. The work was always fun and interesting, and I loved collaborating with the other interns. At the end of the summer, we delivered an amazing presentation to the team at Shipt. Presenting the finished product with the other interns and seeing the culmination of our hard work was an unforgettable experience. I'm so thankful for my time at Intermark and all that I gained this summer.

Analytics Intern

Digital Insights

Collects data from campaigns that have ran and analyzes them to find the story that it tells. This includes creating dashboards to visualize data, analyzing data for trends, and making key recommendations to the clients / digital media buyers to help improve the ROI on our campaigns. In addition to the data analyzing a digital insight analyst would come up with new and innovative ways to enhance clients’ SEO (search engine optimization). This would include handling technical fixes within the website to make it run more efficiently, give input on current strategy, and recommendations to improve search optimization. Over the course of the summer you will gain knowledge in the data gathering, data visualization, and key recommendation segments of a digital insights analyst position.

Media Intern

Media

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

My internship experience at Intermark Group this past summer was more than I could have ever asked for. From working alongside some of the most inspiring, talented individuals doing real work, to learning skills from Intermark's best about the industry as a whole, I experienced and learned so much more than a classroom could ever teach me. As the media intern, I had the opportunity to get hands-on experience with vendors and their systems, tracking advertising spend for multiple clients, research through secondary data, and becoming further educated on current trends in media consumption. Intermark Group encourages collaborating with other departments, further preparing and educating you for your future career. Interning with Intermark has by far given me a competitive advantage coming out of college, and for that I am forever grateful.

Assists in generating ideas for strategy, campaigns and contests. Learns social media planning and how to monitor reputation management to build brand awareness and reputability.

The experience I gained through my internship with Intermark Group was invaluable and paved the way for the career that I have at Intermark today. I had the opportunity to do real work for actual clients all while feeling extremely supported by the team members I worked with. Although I was able to learn a lot through my college education, nothing prepared me more than the real-world experience that I gained as part of Intermark’s Internship Program. Not only will you get the chance to work with a great group of interns, you will also leave this internship feeling completely prepared to enter the industry after graduation.
