Positions

Account Service Intern

Account Service

Assists with the day-to-day interaction and communication with our clients. Works with various departments, including, but not limited to, public relations, strategy and media, to ensure all aspects of our clients’ work is completed and executed with a focus on print, radio and broadcast.

Internship. A word with many stigmas and clichés attached to it; the “job” where all you get is coffee, copies, and an entire summer of uneventful hours. This was not the case at Intermark. I spent my time learning and growing from doing real work with clients and got to meet some of the most incredible people I’ve ever worked with. I’m guessing this was because of Intermark’ s very strategic process of filtering out hundreds of seemingly hardworking, but lazy applicants. Not only was everyone on my team experts at what they did, they all became actual friends that ensured my drive from Tuscaloosa was a happy one. Yes, the work we did with our client was real, tough, and greatly satisfying, but even when you didn’t necessarily want to work, the people made the work worth doing.

Art Direction Intern

Art Direction/Design

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

As a recent graduate from SCAD (Savannah College of Art & Design), I was eager to utilize everything I had learned throughout school in a real-world agency environment. As I researched where I wanted to gain this experience, Intermark Group was my top choice. The internship at Intermark is unparalleled. There really aren't enough words, better yet the right words that encompass the sentiment of my internship experience. As the Art Direction Intern, I was able to really dive into my role through intense research, conception, and compilation of deliverables with guidance from my Art Direction Mentor. I learned so much more about Art Direction and Copywriting as I was paired with an extremely talented copywriter for the duration of the internship, in addition to a representative from PR, Media, Analytics, and Account Services. A team effort was essential for the success of our campaign. However, the most rewarding component of the entire internship are the relationships I was able to establish within my internship group as well as throughout the agency. I will carry this past summer with me forever, as each person I encountered and each experience I endured has helped mold me into a better Art Director and Designer not to mention a better person.

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. And if you make your mentor jealous, you’ve done it right.

I can’t believe how fast my time at Intermark has come and gone. I had the most amazing summer working with the fellow interns and interacting with everyone in the agency every day. Our managers and intern manager were always so encouraging, and I feel I have learned so much from each of them throughout the internship. From script writing, to countless taglines, to working alongside the art direction intern, I feel I have grown tremendously as a copywriter and creative. I consider myself very lucky to have been able to work at Intermark and pitch our campaign to Milo's Sweet Tea Company at the end of the internship. I am truly going to miss Intermark so much and will carry the lessons I learned and the people I met with me always.

Digital Account Service

Digital Account Service

Reviews, analyzes, documents and evaluates business systems, workflows, procedures and data structures. 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 learned more than I ever expected this past summer at Intermark Group. Even though I gathered much knowledge in the classroom, the hands-on approach at Intermark has been invaluable. In my opinion, the best way to learn is by doing, and I am truly grateful for this opportunity. At Intermark Group, working as a digital account service intern has allowed me to serve in many roles and interact with a variety of people. I always felt valuable in all areas of my work, from working with the interns to meeting with clients for my department. I can’t thank everyone enough, and I will never forget this experience!

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.

Interning at Intermark has been one of the greatest experiences I have had in college thus far. Through this internship, I was able to get hands-on experience working with great clients, and I was also able to work with a team of incredibly smart, talented people to produce work that I was incredibly proud of by the end of the summer. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to be here and learn so much about this industry from professionals who truly excel in their field. I would recommend applying for this internship to someone who has a desire to work hard, grow professionally and produce work that really means something.

Public Relations Intern

Social Media

Learns how to use social media platforms to speak to different audiences based on brand strategy and brand voice. Writes content and creates social media graphics that generate brand engagement. 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.

My time at Intermark Group was an experience that I will never forget and one that I will be forever grateful for. Everyone in the office was extremely supportive and kind, and they made sure we were equipped with the tools we needed to thrive. Throughout the summer, our managers challenged us and pushed us to be our very best, and because of their help, we were able to deliver an incredible presentation to Milo’s Tea Company. This internship gave me invaluable knowledge and has fully prepared me to enter the industry after graduation with confidence (and it gave me some awesome friends).

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.

If I had to use one word to describe this internship experience, it would be fulfilling. Collaborating with a brilliant group to solve complex problems for a national brand was the highlight of my summer. In B-school, you don’t often sit on the front lines of business challenges, and so the stakes aren’t as high in the classroom setting; the ideas and recommendations to case studies are made in an ideal environment. You aren’t solving problems in real-time; you’re passively sitting behind a classroom desk. So, when the pressure was on and the time was limited, we were able to leverage our strengths and unique talents to solve the client’s short and long-term problems. In the end, we delivered insightful data, innovative ideas, and impactful strategies that will help move this brand forward. Thank you, Intermark, for a rewarding experience! What a valuable opportunity to have had before beginning my full-time career.

Motion Graphics Intern

Motion Graphics

Must be competent with Adobe After Effects and Premiere. Responsibilities will include editing and creating motion graphics for broadcast spots and corporate videos. Must be able to work unsupervised and thrive in a creative but deadline driven environment.

My experience at Intermark Group has been nothing short of one of the best steps I have ever taken to further my career. I can attribute my experience to being thrown directly into the work force. From having to meet deadlines to presenting and working directly with clients, the skills I have learned and the connections I have made at Intermark are priceless.
