Account Service Intern

Account Service

Assists with the day-to-day interaction and communication with our clients. Works with various departments to ensure all aspects of our clients’ work is completed and executed.

Working with Account Service was a phenomenal experience, and because of this role I truly worked with employees of each department. This program taught me so many things and most importantly, validated that this is what I want to pursue.

Design 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 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.

The ins and outs of an agency and how it operates is something you can't learn unless you are actually there. For me that's what Intermark's internship is about, learning things you can't learn in school. If you ever wondered what ad agency life is like, spend a summer and find out for yourself.

Copywriter Intern


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 received hands-on experience writing copy for various types of clients, from healthcare companies to car companies to marinade & steak sauces. I used what I learned over the summer to help with intern’s campaign pitch to a real-life client.

Digital Account Service

Digital Account Service

Assists with the day-to-day interaction and communication with our digital clients. Works with various departments to ensure all aspects of our clients’ work are completed and executed with a focus on mobile applications, web development, beacon technology and new business.

I learned more about computer programming while interning at Intermark. Although I wasn’t expecting to attend meetings and presentations, I’m certainly glad I did. I learned more about the ins and outs of presenting a campaign as a team, which boosted my confidence.

Media Intern


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 got to apply concepts I learned in college to analyze media research and other reports that were produced. Collaborating with my fellow interns on a real business pitch allowed me to learn immense amounts about a career in advertising.

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.

My experience with Intermark was overall fantastic. I had a lot of hands-on experience. If you are really interested in boosting your skills and fine-tuning your talents, Intermark’s internship program is for you.
