Digital Strategy Intern


Cedar Knolls, New Jersey

Every summer, Fingerpaint invites motivated individuals with a specific interest in marketing to apply for an internship, offering a hands-on opportunity to work alongside our team to produce great client solutions. You’ll be helping us achieve amazing results by working on projects that may include branding, research, creative, digital, promotion and production. 

You’ll be fully immersed in the Fingerpaint culture for 10 weeks (usually just after Memorial Day through mid-August) for 30 hours per week. You’ll be working with industry experts who have first-hand knowledge of the marketing and advertising 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 non-profit 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. 

Our internship program is highly competitive with a limited number of paid spots (summer only). For-credit opportunities may also be available during other semesters.
