Open Positions

PR + Marketing Intern

Overview

Haberman is a full-service creative + engagement agency with a clearly defined mission — to tell the stories of pioneers who are making a difference in the world. As modern storytellers, we create powerful movements that inspire engagement and drive positive social change. Our team is made up of bright, passionate advocates, many of whom left big agencies for more meaningful work.

We seek a PR and Marketing intern who’s ready for a wild and crazy ride in the world of marketing, advertising, branding and PR. You have an open heart and an open mind and are primed to dive in, try new things and exhaustively learn. Days in this position are filled with: immersion, partnering with the broader team, pitching media, creating smart content, diving deep and dissecting research questions, and navigating the ever-changing marketing landscape – all with a positive, “whatever it takes” outlook. You’ll also solve administrative quagmires (printer glitches anyone?) and warmly welcome Haberman guests. Bring your new ideas, leave your ego at home, learn and contribute. (Oh, and be prepared to beat Fred in the annual Final Four brackets.)

  • You’re curious. As in, late night, all day, one more page, one more link, keep asking questions curious.
  • You’re a natural born, career-honed, supernaturally blessed, idea weaving communicator.
  • You’re brave. You will walk out with a rock and a sling. You will face the blank canvas. Grinning.
  • You’re OK with being vulnerable. You’re OK asking for help. You’re willing to trust a tribe member.
  • You either never had an ego or you had it surgically removed. Collaboration is as natural as breathing.
