Internships – Calling All

Calling all

We know there’s a lot more to you than what’s on your resume. Everyone brings a unique perspective to the table. As an Arthur Elliott intern, you’ll learn how to leverage your strengths into meaningful work for clients and the agency itself.

Internships – Intro

You will also wield command on your very own project—working with real people and producing real results—all while learning how an agency functions from the inside. In fact, we’ll give you your first lesson now:

Don’t show up on your first day in a fancy blazer. We keep it casual around here.

(Although we do draw the line at sweatpants. We’re a business, not your couch.)

Internships – Shoot Your Shot

Shoot Your Shot

Are you a fearless leader with a knack for creativity? Can you juggle more things than a circus clown? Were you ever crowned kickball champion in middle school gym class? Have you memorized the lyrics to Lil Wayne’s 6 Foot 7 Foot? Does reading this feel like an interrogation? Sorry, we’re just excited.

If you said yes to any one of these, you’ll fit right in. Check out our intern positions below:

  • Understanding of basic accounting and financial principles.
  • Proficient in Microsoft Office applications.

        Internships – FAQ

        FAQ

        How many interns do you hire?

        Typically, four per semester. Sometimes five so we can have a full intern roster for pickup basketball.

        What’s the workload like?

        The industry moves fast and changes constantly. You need to know that one day you may be crushed with a tsunami of research and pulled into meetings, while the next day you are surfing the coffee break wave…but you need to come prepared!

        Are you gonna hire me on the spot, after, or what?

        The best part about our agency is that we’re always growing. If you’re someone that consistently goes the extra mile and creates value for our agency, it’s possible we’ll keep you around. This internship is competitive, so you need to STAND OUT.

        Do I need to be local?

        Our internship is in-person and we recommend that you reside in or around Charlotte. We feel it’s necessary to get the full agency experience, meet a real Account Executive, hear really creative swear words, and pop in random meetings. But if you can commute every day from…wherever you are, we don’t mind!

        I have so many questions, who do I ask?

        We’re all ears. Contact us at internships@arthurelliott.com

        What’s it like working here?

        Internships – Scrolled This Far

        Interns aren’t here to mop the floors, master solitaire, or buy us beer with their fake IDs. Believe it or not, an actual intern wrote this whole web page! You came here for a reason—because you followed a burning passion that cannot be fulfilled without real-world experience. Whether we fuel your desire to learn more or make you hate marketing so much that you decide to study biochemistry instead—you’ll forever be traumatized by our singing either way (just kidding.)

        If you scrolled this far, we like you already. Give us a reason to love you.
