Wexley School for Girls Account Management Internship

Account Management Intern – Job Description
Wexley School for Girls is currently looking for a qualified intern to join our Account Management team for Fall Quarter. We are a full-service advertising agency in downtown Seattle known for our off-the-wall campaigns for clients like the Sounders, Seahawks, Ford, Oberto, Darigold and HomeStreet Bank.  We like to think of ourselves as a Fan Factory. We cultivate and ignite consumers’ love for brands. We create engaged fanatics who deliver value in the real world and on the wide web one. We turn consumers into fans by creating experiences that interest and engage them over time. We make hearts race. We make voices scream. We make it rain dead presidents. 

The Account Intern should be prepared to work in a fast-paced team environment and balance a variety of projects simultaneously. We’re a small company, so our team asks a lot of our interns. We need someone who is a proactive self-starter who won’t wait to be told what to do. We give a lot of responsibility and demand accountability, so we need an intern who is hungry to learn and has good follow-through.  You will have the opportunity to work on projects and be involved on an in-depth level that’s unlike anywhere else. At the end of the internship you will have gained a thorough understanding of the advertising industry.  

The Account Intern responsibilities include:
  • Assist with new business pitches
  • Assist with competitive reviews
  • Send Weekly Update to agency with noteworthy industry news and trends
  • Assist with tasks relating to key clients as assigned by the Account Managers
  • Involvement in internal meetings/reviews to gain an understanding of the workflow process
  • Conduct a quarter-long research project on an agreed-upon topic and present to the agency at the end of the quarter
  • Assist with administrative tasks – preparing conference rooms for client meetings, answering the phone while the Office Manager is away, running errands, answering the front door, etc

There’s no us without you. So if you think you’re naturally gifted & cr*p gold (and therefore a good fit for Wexley), please send your Cover Letter & Resume to by Friday, August 16th.
