Pulsar, an RVA office of an integrated marketing and branding agency, is seeking a full-time paid intern to support and participate in new business development for the agency as well as assume some agency administrative functions (e.g., account billing). Should be highly organized, independent, be a great writer/editor and have the ability to “juggle multiple balls” simultaneously. This is a great opportunity for the right recent college graduate looking for experience to add to their resume.
Like most businesses, Pulsar is predominately conducting its business on a telework basis with at least one day a week in the office (at West Broad Village in Short Pump). So, you need to be self motivated and have the ability (at least during COVID-19) to work on your own with daily Zoom/virtual meetings and calls.
This is a REAL paid full-time internship (even better - it's paid) with real opportunities to learn (and if you are outstanding - we'll have no choice but to hire you permanently).
You will be working side-by-side with the Partner in charge of new business and strategic marketing planning, assisting with assessing market opportunities, writing/organizing/preparing proposals, conducting Internet and market research, minor graphic design of covers, creative samples and proposal, and pro-actively building brand awareness for the agency. You will be responsible for writing and editing sections of the new business proposals. In addition, you'll be responsible for monthly billing for a key agency account.
Best if you have:
* Bachelor’s Degree in PR, Advertising, Marketing or Mass Communications (or related fields)
* Highly organized and motivated
* Excellent writing and editing skills
* Ability to prioritize and multi-task under the pressure of deadlines
* Familiarity with Mac OS
* Knowledge of MS Office (in a Mac environment) especially Word, Excel and PowerPoint
* Problem solving abilities
Pay: $12.00 - $14.00 per hour
