Paid Summer Internships in Washington and Chicago with August Jackson

AJ is a world-class communications design agency. We have expertise in planning, designing, activating and measuring strategic communications campaigns, live events and meetings, and digital/mobile engagements.

We serve clients ranging from major corporations and brands to nonprofits, and we’ve produced programs in 18 countries across five continents.
About the Position: Summer interns will be integrated into the teams and projects that best match their skill sets and desired areas of focus. Interns have the option to apply for an internship specifically in creative, production or account management — or may choose an internship experience that combines all three disciplines.
What You Can Expect:
  • Daily responsibilities will range from supporting internal initiatives and organizational functions, to hands-on work with AJ teams on strategic, creative and production-focused projects.
  • Interns are often involved in client-facing situations which provide real-world exposure, and may be asked to travel for meetings and events, depending on location and internship focus.
