Summer 2020 Account Service Intern
Cedar Knolls, NJ
Every summer, Fingerpaint invites motivated college students with a specific interest in pharmaceutical and healthcare marketing to apply for an internship, offering a hands-on opportunity to work alongside our team to produce great client solutions.
As an intern at Fingerpaint, you’ll be fully immersed in the Fingerpaint culture for 10 weeks for 30 hours per week. You’ll be working with industry experts who have first-hand knowledge of the industry. You will not only have a chance to touch client work as part of your role, but you will also work on a group project of your own with our other interns. We’ll team you up with a local nonprofit organization as your client, and you and our intern team will own a marketing project tailored specifically for that organization’s needs. It’s a hands-on experience that’s a win-win for all involved: They walk away with a pro-bono project, and you walk away with real-world client experience to enhance your resume. And as an added bonus, it’s a great way for you to contribute to Fingerpaint’s passion for giving back to the community. This internship gives exposure to a uniquely collaborative environment with varied areas of expertise.
What does the account service team do? The account team understands the client’s products, market, strategic goals, and objectives, and they convey them to internal teams to create something original on behalf of the client. They facilitate ongoing contact with the client and have responsibility for communicating strategic direction as well as day-to-day feedback. They work with project management to develop scopes and proposals and to manage forecasting, billing, and accruals.
