Brandtern Overview:

The Gatesman Brandtern experience will offer intern candidates a robust and interactive learning environment that harnesses creativity, project initiation, professional development, and innovation with practice on real-life clients. Collaboration between multiple disciplines within the advertising agency will expose Brandterns to a healthy range of client projects from a variety of industries, including but not limited to business-to-business, retail, business to consumer, non-profit, healthcare and more. Please note that this year will be slightly different than our typical Brandtern experience in that it will be mostly to all work from home.

Project Management Brandtern:

Budget Guru: Are you one of the most organized people you know? Do you always stick to your budget once you set it? Can you work with anyone who is in any department for a project? If all of this sounds exactly like you, then you might be our new Project Management Brandtern.

Keep an Eye on the Clock: As a member of the Project Management team, you’ll help run the well-oiled machine that is Gatesman. You’ll set up meetings such as project kickoffs or internal reviews. You'll manage and track projects within our PM software, estimate project hours, and build timelines. You’ll also help with overall organization efforts and collaborate with the other brandterns amongst other teams.

Vendor-ing Machine: While Project Management is mostly working with internal teams, as a Project Management Brandtern, you’ll also contact and interact with vendors. You will be working to arrange anything from t-shirt printers for a client’s charity event to photoshoots for a client’s campaign. You’ll make sure every project gets the outside support it needs.
