Position at VMLY&R

About Us: VMLY&R

VMLY&R is a global brand and customer experience agency that harnesses creativity, technology, and culture to create connected brands. But what does that mean? It means we're a creative agency that is built on the promise of collaboration and human connection. Creating connected brands isn't just what we do - it's what we're known for and who we are. We empower our clients to excel at the intersection of "brand" and "customer experience," starting with simple goals: Create work that becomes part of people's lives; promote value for our clients; and, in the best of cases, help the world.

We're committed to building a united global network of creators and thinkers, regardless of their age, race, skin color, religion, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression. With over 12,000 employees across the globe, our influence is made stronger by applying our collective experiences to tell stories that not only sell products and experiences, but also guarantee positive representations of all communities.

Our unique culture is rooted in a great deal of care for you and your success. Above all else, we are committed to strengthening your experience by ensuring your inner potential continues to be discovered.

We also offer about a dozen employee resource groups (ERGs) that allow you to tap into your personal identities, interests and passions. Our ERGs celebrate ethnic diversity, life as a working parent or caregiver, neurodiversity, the LGBTQ+ community, wellbeing, and more. Regardless of your interests, there is no shortage of opportunities to get involved, so tap into our global network and find where you can make your ideas come to life.

As a social strategy intern, you'll jump right in, contributing great work for a range of amazing clients. You'll help create and execute social media strategies backed by competitive research. You'll learn about social listening, platform determination, messaging, audience identification and more.

If you consider yourself self-motivated and passionate, have a healthy balance of critical and creative thinking, lack fear in the face of data, and are absolutely certain you'd still be cracking good jokes during the zombie apocalypse, then you could be VMLY&R social strategist material.

What You'll Be Doing

* Helping create and execute social media strategy through competitive research, social listening, platform determination, messaging, and audience identification
* Collaborating with the creative team in producing, editing and publishing content that drives engagement from our clients' fan bases
* Moderating social platforms and fielding fan responses
* Helping analyze metrics to determine what's working, what's not and where there are opportunities for something great
* Collaborating with other departments (customer relations, sales, etc.) to manage reputation, identifying key players and coordinating actions
* Staying plugged into industry updates, following the developments from major social platforms and innovative social marketing campaigns
Required Skills & Experience

* Junior, senior, or nontraditional student in college or recent graduate with coursework or experience in a related field
* Excellent writing, editing (photo/video/text), presentation and communication skills
* Comfort with analyzing data and drawing insights
* Familiarity with (and interest in) current trends in social marketing
* Fluency in English (but knowledge of a secondary language is always awesome)
* A sense of humor, a curious personality and a passionate opinion on whether dogs should have people names such as Paul or Leslie

VMLY&R is an equal opportunity employer and considers applicants for all positions without regard to race, color, religion or belief, sex, age, national origin, citizenship status, marital status, military/veteran status, genetic information, sexual orientation, gender identity, or physical or mental disability.
