What’s it like to be an intern?

Here at Treefrog, every day is different. As a full-service marketing agency, we are flexible with the changing needs and requests of our clients and their customers. That means that we’re busy–and we like it that way!

As an intern, it’s no different. From day one, you’ll experience what it’s like to work on real projects for our clients. Whether you’re working with content or design, you’ll gain invaluable skills while having fun on the job.

I loved our coffee breaks! Even if it was just for 10 minutes, it was a great way to get out of the office and bond with each other. – Maureen Corbett, Summer 2014 Intern

Content Interns

Qualified candidates love to write and tackle new challenges. Interns will learn about the strategic side of writing persuasive content and be given the chance to work independently on real projects for real clients. Responsibilities include (but are not limited to):

  • Social media posts and planning
  • Blog development
  • Social media analytics
  • Search engine optimization (SEO)
  • Scheduling content

It’s a small company, so you get to know everyone well! It’s interesting to see how each of our minds work differently and how, together, we come up with better ideas than we would’ve been able to on our own.” – Carli Cramer, Summer 2015 Intern

Graphic Design Interns

Qualified candidates love to design and rise to the occasion–with challenges like web design, business cards, brochures and other projects. Interns will learn how to strategically create designs that deliver, and they will be able to work independently on real projects for real clients. Responsibilities include (but are not limited to):

  • Social media ad design
  • Brochure layouts
  • Web design and development
  • Email template layouts
  • Business card design

Everyone is kind-hearted and fun to be around. I’m lucky to be working with awesome, talented people while also doing what I love–design! – Erin Rhody, Summer 2015 Intern

We love having our interns in the office and work hard to provide a professional, but fun environment to both learn and gain valuable career experience in the creative marketing realm for writers and designers.

Our internship is an unpaid program where we ask for a 10 hour/week commitment from our interns. We are flexible with days and times and the office and provide a personal workspace for you to work from. Internships typically run the duration of the semester (10-12 weeks).
