Internship Overview Icon

Internship Overview

Work in a dynamic, youthful environment this summer and gain professional experience. We offer summer internships allowing you to design ads that target the college market, prepare publications for press, or copy-edit and manage the workflow of the Production Department.

Available Positions

Project Design Specialist

For Summer 2018, AroundCampus anticipates hiring 15 Project Design Specialists to assist Design Managers in preparing advertorial artwork and press layouts for our student publications. Each Project Design Specialist (PDS) will be assigned approximately 12 projects to see through the end of our summer publication cycle. The PDS will be responsible for designing original advertisements, revising existing customer artwork, ensuring all artwork is high quality and meets company standards, maintaining our customer logo databases, laying out some sections of the publication, and proofing drafts before press deadlines.

PDSs will work alongside one another and be a part of a cross-departmental team, working in conjunction with Customer Relations Interns to meet client needs and attain approval. AroundCampus utilizes NetSuite, a popular CRM platform, to store client information and manage task allocation, which all interns will receive extensive training on.

This is a fast-paced, deadline-focused internship – you will not be fetching coffee except for yourself! All Production positions require strong organizational skills, a detail-oriented mind, multi-tasking abilities, self-motivation, and a solutions-focused attitude. Strong verbal, interpersonal, and written communication skills are a must. Designers must have intermediate-to-advanced Photoshop skills, and should be at least familiar with using InDesign and Illustrator; all three programs will factor heavily into our workflow. Interns should also be comfortable working on Apple computers.

Publication Specialist

For Summer 2018, AroundCampus anticipates hiring 3 Publication Specialists to assist Project Managers in creating and preparing university publications for press. They will be responsible for designing university-specific planner materials, prepping files for press, and proofing for accuracy. Publication Specialists will grow not only their graphic design skills in this position, but also their editorial and technical design base. Their front cover and introductory page designs will be featured in thousands of copies of our planners, so attention-to-detail and accuracy are highly valued.

This position requires the ability to work independently and thoroughly in a fast-paced, deadline-oriented environment while also effectively communicating progress and updates to other team members. Experience in Adobe InDesign is required. This is a great opportunity for those interested in gaining design experience while also exploring project management, editing and print publishing.

To apply, fill out our application form and submit your resume, cover letter, and portfolio (optional) for review.

Publishing Assistant

For Summer 2018, AroundCampus anticipates hiring 3 Publishing Assistants to manage departmental workflow and quality control advertisements and publications for press. Publishing Assistants take on a unique role of evaluating, prioritizing, and delegating the summer workload across departments to ensure every publication goes to press on time. As the first set of eyes on a project, they will copy-edit and proof advertisements and layouts to further ensure accuracy for customer approval and press. Other projects may be assigned as needed.

In this role, Publishing Assistants will develop time management and decision-making skills while strengthening their copyediting and proofreading experience in a fast-paced and deadline-driven environment. This position requires the ability to work independently and in a group. Strong written, verbal, and interpersonal communication skills are a must. Experience with design is encouraged.
