Internships Available

Campuspeak Internships Notice

The application deadline for our spring internships is quickly approaching and we know you have amazing students who would benefit from working in our office. Please forward this announcement to any students who meet the following criteria: a self-starting attitude; good writing skills; a proven ability to problem-solve; a friendly, outgoing personality; and a willingness to work in a team environment while being able to work independently on projects. These internships are excellent opportunities for students seeking practical experience in marketing, public relations, event planning, and business.

We're Currently Seeking Collegiate Interns! We are seeking enthusiastic interns for meaningful and challenging assignments in our national office in Denver, Colorado. All internships are full-time, 40 hours per week. Internships are open to undergraduates, recent graduates, and grad students. We offer a stipend of $175 per week, paid biweekly, plus lodging in a furnished townhouse. Interns may, if they choose, receive their stipend in the form of a scholarship.

We hire interns for a six month assignment, twice a year. We are flexible on the number of weeks for an internship. All interns must have their own vehicle and will be responsible for their own utilities, meals, insurance (health and automobile), taxes, and expenses related to travel to Colorado, etc.

The company will cooperate with interns seeking academic credit from their institutions or for those students taking Internet-based courses during non-working hours. Some internships may include travel on behalf of the company. Because we are a small, energetic, progressive company, our interns have meaningful work and gain a great deal of practical experience.

All interns take part in professional development activities, and we invest in career development coaching for all of our interns. Several interns have moved into full-time salaried positions with our company (although we cannot guarantee position availability). We pride ourselves on creating a fun, supportive environment, and you'll love working here!
