About Intermark

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Most strategic marketers spend a great deal of time developing and talking about “insights” within their brand ecosystems (the competition, the product, the media mix, and of course the consumer). The problem is, many so-called consumer insights are merely observations about WHAT people think and do. Certainly interesting. Sometimes helpful. But when all is said and done, that’s not particularly insightful.

OUR INSIGHT

True insight reveals WHY people think and behave the way they do. Our “Insight Team” is charged with both understanding the why as well as identifying how we can leverage persuasive psychology to shape a particular action. This is the underpinning of all the work we do at Intermark.

OUR CAPABILITIES

Our group imagination comes from our diverse and talented team. We have experts in marketing, digital, social, PR and media, as well as our own production studio — all under one roof. That wide range of creative disciplines helps us see all the capabilities of your brand. And that 360-degree thinking leads to smarter and better-connected ideas. Teams include: Strategic Planning, Creative, Media, Production, Interactive, Public Relations, Small Business and Social Media.

Intermark Internships

As a summer intern at Intermark Group, you’ll be thrown headfirst into the agency life. The first couple weeks of the summer, you’ll work within your assigned department to learn more about the ins and outs of advertising. You will have the opportunity to sit in on brainstorming meetings, assist on real accounts, and explore the work we produce. All interns will also help plan our annual company picnic, monthly birthday celebrations and other fun events.

At the end of the summer, the interns will collaboratively create and present a pitch to a real-life client. If you want to learn more about how the advertising business really is and experience a better opportunity to confidently prepare you for the workforce, we highly suggest you apply for an exciting summer as an intern at Intermark.

Positions include: Account Service, Art Direction/Design, Copywriting, Digital Account Service, Media, Public Relations and Automotive Analytics.
