RedPeg Marketing, an experiential marketing agency located in Old Town Alexandria, is seeking motivated college students to participate in its unique and competitive internship program.
RedPeg Marketing is an award-winning company that makes annual appearances on Promo magazine’s list of top 100 agencies. Creating engaging brand experiences that touch people on a personal level is what we do best. We specialize in helping our clients build long, lasting and meaningful relationship with the target consumers. Our numerous Fortune 500 clients only begin to attest to our level of expertise and impact.
We are an agency that believes in the concept of working hard and playing hard. We pride ourselves in drawing the best and brightest to fuel. Great ideas are achieved by passion, teamwork and collaboration. We do not only think outside the box; we reinvent the box.
Our internship program offers valuable, hands-on, professional experience that few others can offer. High levels of organization, detail-orientation and multitasking abilities are required to succeed in this fast paced environment. We ask that applicants have a working knowledge of Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint and be willing to adapt to a Macintosh set up.
Mentorship Program – We believe that our internship program should actually be called a mentorship program. We believe in helping our interns grow professionally in terms of practical skill sets and business etiquette.
Weekly Meetings/Brown-Bag Lunches – Every week, interns have a weekly meeting to discuss key learnings and challenges. During the meeting, there are Brown Bag sessions with someone from the company. Those individuals will train interns on the experiential marketing industry, the marketing industry as a whole, basic benefits information, and resume development, just to give a few examples.
Intern Project – Every intern class gets a new and exciting project that is all your own. It is up to you to come up with ideas in brainstorming sessions and decide what direction it goes in. Eventually, interns will all present it to the members of the company.
Tours and Programs – If a program comes to the area there’s a chance you’ll be invited to come see whatever it may be, from a promotional tour bus to a fundraiser down town.
