Who are you: All your life, online media has been your passion. With your advertising degree in pursuit, you are ready to take that passion and apply it in the real world.

And in the process, you’ll learn the ins-and-outs of how to monitor, report and advise clients on how to make their campaigns even better.


Your day-to-day (as an Account Management Intern, you’ll):

  • Implement, monitor and maintain online advertising campaigns, including coordinating development of creative materials
  • Use analytics tools (i.e. Google Analytics, internally developed tools) to identify, understand and report on what’s causing a campaign to fall-short
  • Work closely with more experienced folks on the team to develop strategic recommendations on campaign optimizations and recommendations
  • Generate weekly and monthly campaign reports summarizing past campaign performance and optimization recommendations for upcoming month(s)

  • A Herculean work ethic that just doesn’t quit (and is always looking to climb the ladder)
