At A&G, strategists are responsible for digging into culture, the motivations of people, our clients’ work, the competitive landscape, and current events to form insights that inspire creative teams to make the awesome work you see online, on TV, on billboards, and everywhere else advertising lives. Without strategic grounding, advertising can miss the mark at best and, at worst, actually turn people off from your brand. Yikes. Strategists need to be empathetic people who can put themselves into other peoples’ shoes, while also continually searching for hard data to back up our insights and instincts. At A&G, our strategy interns can expect to dive into primary and secondary research across a broad range of clients while gaining exposure to our creative, media, and analytics teams that we partner with daily. You’ll also be expected to bring a new perspective to the team and present ideas, cultural findings, and explain the fresh memes and slang to us.
