UNPAID INTERNSHIPS - Redpepper Ad Agency: Nashville

As a Redpepper intern, you’ll contribute firsthand to something we hold as the highest importance – our culture. We are addicted to learning, collaborating and being actively creative on a daily basis. You’ll learn the ins and outs of the ad world, build relationships in the industry, get a taste of a truly collaborative work environment, and probably even pick up a new skill set or two.  

Of course, your days here will largely be what you make of them. You can be part of changing this place if you want, but that comes through initiative, courage, and some elbow grease. And you’ll have a mentor whose brain you can pick along the way, as long as you’re ready to return the favor.   

We’re looking specifically for college juniors and seniors. We designed our program to give undergraduate students some so-called real world experience, and for us to learn from the next generation of superstars. All Redpepper internships are unpaid, which means you probably won’t be getting any fancy new cars while you’re here. What you will get, however, is awesome experience and bragging rights for life. 

We’re really looking for unquenchable learners, big thinkers, clear communicators, self-motivators, and all-hands-on-deckers. We’re looking for inspiring talent more than mere qualifications. And though there are endless ways to get noticed, the quickest way to get ignored is by having a bad attitude. We like happy people, and preferably those capable of quoting Tommy Boy in their sleep. 

You might be thinking, how much can really happen in a three-month, 20 hour a week (minimum) internship? Well, that’s exactly our question to you. 

Marketing & Research:

We’re looking for MARKETING & RESEARCH INTERNS who could accurately be described as human search engines. They come alive by running with questions to uncover insights, trends, and solutions in surprising places. And they can translate their findings into writing, spreadsheets, or the often-underrated verbal explanation. (TED Talks, anyone?) 

Specific Tasks to include: Research, PR, Social media management, Database management, etc. 

Graphic Design

We’re looking for DESIGN INTERNS with fantastical portfolios that showcase a wide variety of conceptual, well thought out work that is relevant to what we do here at redpepper. And they should be Adobe Creative Suite wiz kids, too. 

Specific Tasks Include: designing internal projects, assisting in brainstorming and concepting sessions and more. 

Account Management:

We’re looking for ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT INTERNS who take “business-minded” to a new level. They’re excellent communicators with both left- and right-brainers. They’re highly creative problem solvers while being meticulous about details. And they get an adrenaline rush from hearing the word “spreadsheet.” 

Social Media:

We’re looking for SOCIAL MEDIA INTERNS who live, eat, and breathe Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Yelp, Google+, and more. They’re testing the merits of the latest platforms before anyone else has heard of them, and they can use Hootsuite blindfolded. They’re thrilled to optimize content for any outlet, and jump at the chance to dive into analytics.
