Verbal/Strategy Intern–Fall 2019

Cincinnati Intern

Apply
When you join LPK as a Verbal/Strategy Intern, we expect you to have an uncompromising work ethic and a passion for writing, brainstorming, researching and translating new discoveries into provocative, inspiring presentations. You will play an active support role on the team while being fully immersed in LPK culture. So what are you waiting for? Let’s get going!
 
A Peek Inside the Life of a Verbal/Strategy Intern: 
Each day brings a different project. Expect to work on different brands that require varying writing styles. You’ll do things like create brand names, package copy, collateral copy, and taglines. From building presentations, proofreading, participating in brainstorms, to conducting research and sharing relevant case studies and inspiration. In addition to your writing opportunities, expect to work on strategy projects like landscape assessments, strategy workshops, designing and executing consumer research and presenting those insights to project objectives. You will also attend and participate in internal reviews, presenting relevant insights and strategic rationale. 
Most important, you won’t be doing this all alone. You’ll work alongside the highly collaborative team.
 

Expectations

  • You’ll be expected to follow the guidance and insights of the verbal and strategy team but offer up new ideas and solutions when appropriate.
  • Proactively seek coaching and training opportunities from guides and team members.
  • Be responsive to feedback and push work forward based on that direction.
  • Hit deadlines, because even the best writing is useless if it’s delivered late. 
  • Hone your writing, technical, analytical and presentation skills.
  • Develop an understanding of brand strategy and strategic copywriting.
  • Build your ability to synthesize ideas and express critical thinking.
  • Roll with the punches. Sometimes the project changes, so our work has to change, too.
  • Gain exposure to and participate in the LPK culture, but don’t fade into the woodwork. We want outstanding performers and personalities.
  • Bring a point of view, stay curious and ask questions. 
  • Base Requirements

  • Working toward a degree in English, Creative Writing, Marketing, Communication or Psychology (or prepared to make a case for majors beyond these) while demonstrating a desire and aptitude for Verbal and Strategy work
  • Excellent written and verbal skills
  • Demonstrable interest in the marketing and branding industry
  • Ability to handle multiple tasks at once
  • Superior writing, presentation, communication and organizational skills
  • Love for research and finding new and exciting ideas
  • Ability to thrive in ambiguous situations
  • Futuristic mindset
  • Program knowledge (Adobe Illustrator, Keynote and the ability to work on a Mac)
  • Fluency in English

  • Please attach three creative writing samples to be considered.
    The term available: August 19, 2019 – December 20, 2019.
