Rotating Interns

A majority of our interns are considered rotating interns, grouped into teams that spend time with various departments to help get a better understanding of what agency life is like. Social media, retail experience, media, production, creative, account services...you'll get a taste of it all. Think of your teammates as your second family here. They’ll be your support, your cheerleaders, and your inspiration while you work together. Each rotating team is typically comprised of a (3) account services interns and (2) creative interns. It takes teamwork for any agency to thrive, and it will take teamwork for you to succeed in this program.

Department Interns

Not looking for a career in advertising? Don’t have the creative skills to develop campaigns?

We’ve got options for you!

Our internship program offers opportunities in the form of “Dedicated Interns,” who work with a specific department all summer. Instead of rotating throughout the agency, they’ll take a deep dive into one area, helping their team with their every day tasks and projects.

You may find yourself specializing in:

Social Media

Human Resources

Data & Analytics

Research & Strategy

Retail Technology

Software Development

Client Specific Account Management

Don’t see an application for something that you had in mind? Send us a note so that we don’t miss you! Not all departments offer internships every year. So we do our best to make the perfect match between intern and department as we evaluate applications.

Other Events

  • Professional Development
    • To land any job, you’ll need the basics: a strong resume, interview skills, and a polished look. Throughout the summer you’ll have the opportunity to work with our HR team to find out what recruiters are looking for when hiring.
  • Philanthropy
    • Giving back is super important to Zimmerman associates. From our quarterly blood drives to our holiday toy drive, we strive to make our community a better place. Our interns are expected to do the same, from idea to implementation, they will pick an organization and provide hands-on service.
  • Social Outings
    • Work hard, play hard! In addition to access to all of our agency events (Karaoke night, anyone?!), our interns will organize an outing to spend some time getting to know each other beyond the workplace.
