Leading marketing firm seeks the future.
Are you a big thinker? An artist? A web geek with an edge? The Weber Shandwick Chicago office wants to see your application for its internship program. We’re passionate about expanding the boundaries of what we offer our clients – and we’re looking for candidates with the creative daring and digital savvy to join that effort.
From creative ideation to execution, Weber Shandwick’s interns form the foundation of a talented team that generates groundbreaking, award-winning programs. During the 16-week program, interns will work on programs for iconic brands they likely encounter every day.

· Create: Written words, videos, images
· Monitor: Track brands in traditional and social media
· Hustle: Pitch stories to media, develop media lists
· Research: Analyze brands using various resources
· Plan: Assist in event coordination and logistics
· Engage: Share big ideas in brainstorms and with teams


The Essentials:
• Thinking: Do it out of the box. Actually, it’s best if you’re wholly unfamiliar with the concept of boxes.
• Digital: Know all the relevant platforms, what brands are doing on them and what they should do next.
• Communication: Speak, write and edit succinctly and compellingly. Ditch jargon.
• Management: Meet deadlines, put out fires and multi-task. Work fast, but work well.
• Interpersonal: Play nice, whether it’s in a team, with a team or independently.
• Technical: Know Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Outlook. Design and video editing chops are a plus.
• Spark: Competence isn’t enough. Set yourself apart with something awesome and unignorable.
