Fletcher Knight Jr. Marketing Consultant Intern
Jr./Associate Marketing Consultant Interns are eager to have a strategic impact on a variety of consumer brands and businesses. Interns are passionate about brands and consumers and how each influences and inspires the other. They demonstrate a high degree of consumer intuition, i.e. a keen desire to understand consumers’ beliefs, attitudes and motivations, coupled with outstanding analytics and hands-on creative skills (written or visual). Interns will help execute primary and secondary research to develop a thorough understanding of the consumer, business and market. They will (verbally and visually) synthesize and translate this consumer and market understanding into rich, inspiring consumer insights to support the ideation and concept development process.
co:collective is a creative and strategic transformation partner for bold businesses. We are considered one of the world’s leading brand strategy and innovation consultancies. We’re led by our deep belief that today’s most successful organizations have an underlying purpose, one that is so central to their identity it influences everything they do, from capital investment to social media. For them, purpose becomes business strategy and storytelling becomes StoryDoing.
At co:collective we design brands, experiences, and content for firms that transform who they are, how they act, and how they show up in the world, with the explicit goal of creating more StoryDoers.
Middlebury alum Diana Bray ‘82 is running for the 2020 Democratic nomination for what is considered the most flippable US Senate seat in the country – the US Senate seat held by Cory Gardner in Colorado. Diana is looking for up to 4 student interns to work at an intensive political internship over the course of J-term. Students interested in politics, the environment, sustainability, health care, reducing gun violence, racial inequity and immigrant rights would be a good fit.
Tasks will include managing social media, field outreach, both online and in-person, strategizing about messaging, event planning, editing written work – i.e. op-eds, participating in climate actions, and more. Diana’s team is small, grass- roots and dedicated, so this experience will be much more hands on than a typical campaign.
No prior political experience is needed – just a passion for the progressive issues that Diana is advocating for. This internship is in Denver. If you do not have housing, Diana can provide. The hours will be approximately 40/week but there is flexibility. If you want to spend some time skiing, yes, there will be time for that as well!
Apply in Handshake HERE. Deadline extended until November 15.
