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.

Account Management Brandtern:

Listen Up: Are you the friend everyone goes to for advice because you’re such a good listener? Can you be friendly and personable to anyone, even if you might not know them that well? Does the idea of writing form after form to kick off every project sound like a fantastic day at work? Do you have a curious personality who loves research and learning new things? If this sounds just like your skill set, you might just be our next Account Management Brandtern.

You’ve Got Mail: As the Account Management Brandtern, you’ll help with a variety of work, from listening in on meetings and calls, to writing formal project launch forms for client work. You’ll be writing emails to clients and helping the Account Management team organize client presentations.
