Position Summary

 

We are looking for an intern who is interested in learning about client management at an advertising agency that serves pharmaceutical brands/products. The intern will be exposed to the process of working in an agency both internally and with clients. The intern will learn about the different types of tactics we work on and get exposure to strategy development/implementation.

 

We would like the intern to work closely with an account supervisor to get exposure to different types of tactics that can be created to help meet a brand’s overall strategy.
