Campus Special Paid Summer Internship

Are you looking for a paid summer internship? Campus Special breaks the mold on the typical internship program. Most internships are limited to filing paperwork, fetching coffee, and clerical tasks. Not cool. This limits the growth and development of skills that are required in today’s competitive job market, plus it’s boring. We empower our interns with real responsibility, training, and hands on experience that prospective employers specifically look for when hiring college graduates. This is more of a mini career than an internship.

As an intern for Campus Special you will work with local business owners and educate them on how to market their business to college students through our print, mobile, online, and digital products. No one knows the college audience better than college students. We kick off the summer with a 4-day training conference in Chicago where you’ll network with hundreds of other interns from around the country and learn about business, marketing, and advertising. Over the summer you will develop skills in business, sales, marketing, advertising, communications, and consulting. Successful interns receive references and recommendation letters and are referred into our Career Partners featuring over 65 companies (Fortune 500 - midsize) who hire directly from our program. They love our interns.
