Fall 2015- Moses Integrated Marketing Internship
Moses is an integrated marketing firm with advertising, interactive, media and public relations all under one roof. With dogs and humans alike roaming the hallways, it can get pretty chaotic. Although we are separated into departments, integration is key to our success; all disciplines are coordinated so strategies, messaging and insights are consistent throughout the agency. The atmosphere at Moses is fast and fun, requiring people who can switch gears at a moment’s notice.

INTERNSHIP INFORMATION
Moses offers internships during the fall, spring and summer in several departments. We do our best to make this internship valuable to you for real world experience. As an intern, we want you to be involved, but that doesn’t include taking coffee orders. Our priority is to provide first-hand agency and client experience that you’ll benefit from in the future. We will work with you and your school to ensure that you receive college credit for the internship; however, we do not offer relocation assistance or reimbursement.
The time commitment requirement is 15-20 hours per week. The schedule during the week is up to you but we request that you keep it consistent week to week.

Make sure you are fine with these aspects of the internship before applying:
• You will be asked to do some admin and grunt work – not a lot, but it will happen. If you feel that you are above that, don’t apply
• You must have a proactive, “self-starter” personality
• Be outgoing. A wilting flower doesn’t last long around here!
• The internship will likely not end with a job offer. We like hiring interns when we can but it’s few and far
between. If you are a stellar intern, we’ll try to help you find a job in the industry

PROCESS
Application – Your application should include a resume and cover letter. Please indicate on your cover letter if you
will need to relocate to Arizona if selected for the internship.
Your resume and cover letter must be combined together into one PDF and the name of the file, must be your full name, for example “Johnny_Depp” (hint: this is a clue for us that you know how to follow directions). Don’t forget to address your application to the appropriate contact person listed in the job description for the internship you are applying for. If applying for more than one internship, please submit only one application and address it to all the appropriate contact people listed in order of preference.
Interview – Each internship coordinator will review all applications received for their specific internship. Because we often receive many internship applications, the internship coordinator must narrow them down to the top candidates for an interview. Don’t be discouraged if you aren’t selected. Competition for internships can be tough. If selected, you will be asked to come to the office for an interview (note: the agency can be hard to find so plan your commute time accordingly). Interviews can be held by phone if you do not live in the Valley.
Selection – Each department head will select the candidate that is right for their department. All candidates will be notified.

HOW TO APPLY
Send your completed application to info@mosesinc.com.
