Ag PR/Social Media Summer Internship
Wisconsin, Milwaukee

You are an online news junkie who loves to write, cares deeply about agriculture and wants to gain professional experience at the country’s largest premier ag marketing agency. We’re ready to hear why you are the best summer internship candidate for 2018 eager to work on dynamic account teams and blue-chip national brands.

Most of your time will be spent working with our public relations teams to develop great content and remarkable social media campaigns. However, you’ll also contribute to strategic development and planning, creative, analytics/measurement and production. At our integrated, multidiscipline agency, you will enhance your communications skills for a variety of channels (online, print and broadcast) and audiences (internal and external). You can expect to collaborate with PR and social media teams on top ag clients such as Dow AgroSciences, Mycogen Seeds, Zoetis, Case IH and Kent Nutrition Group. In addition, you and your fellow summer interns will tackle a special agency communications project that you will present to our management team. Imagine what a summer of agency/client work will look like in your portfolio!

Are you ready to explore your passion, grow your talents (and portfolio) and learn from creative minds across multiple disciplines? Apply to join the Bader Rutter team. And while our focus is on our clients, you’ll enjoy summer in Milwaukee with plenty of agency activities in our new downtown headquarters.

You’ll be at home here with people with similar interests who love to work and play hard.
