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, media, etc., to ensure all aspects of our clients’ work is completed and executed with a focus on print, radio and broadcast.

I thoroughly enjoyed every day of this internship. Creating a campaign with my fellow interns was a challenging but rewarding experience. Not only did I learn the ins and outs of an advertising agency, but I also made some incredible friends. I am happy to say that I chose the right major, because this is definitely what I want to do with my life!

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 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.

Working at Intermark this summer has been one of the most fulfilling things I have done thus far in my career. There was never a time when I didn’t want to come to work, and I never felt like my time was being wasted. I love to be busy, and the work I was doing wasn’t just time filler; the creative briefs were unique, interesting and a chance to make a splash. I am so thankful to have worked with the creative individuals who pushed me to go bigger and never wanted me to cut down my ideas. Seeing the creative process from start to finish is so satisfying, and an experience I never could have gotten in school. I feel like I have truly grown into my “art direction” shoes and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.

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.

Being a part of the Intermark Group internship program has been an amazing experience. I got to work with great mentors who really invested their time in my success. I learned so much and was able to be a part of so many client projects. From commercial shoots and voice talent casting to working on challenging and exciting briefs, Intermark allowed me to experience so many aspects of life at an advertising agency. It was a great learning opportunity, and definitely never a dull moment. Accepting this internship was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

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, etc., to ensure all aspects of our clients’ work is completed and executed with a focus on mobile applications, website development and other digital assets.

As an Intermark intern I was able to work in a collaborative environment and I learned so much more about advertising in the 11 weeks than I ever thought possible. Being able to relate concepts I learned while in school to the real work I was doing over the summer was truly fulfilling.

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.

The Intermark intern program was everything I could imagine and more. As a media intern I was able to gain valuable experience that surpassed anything I could learn in classes. I would recommend the program to anyone who wants to gain hands-on experience while having fun doing it.

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.

If you are looking for real-world PR experience, this internship is the way to go. Your skills will improve throughout the summer—from writing releases, planning events, creating social content, monitoring sites and much more. By the end of the summer, you will have learned far more than you could have ever imagined from a talented group of PR professionals!
