Internships

Not Your Average Intern Experience

All trailblazers are young, green firestarters at some point, and there’s no better place to ignite your talent and hone your skill set than here. You won’t be getting us coffee, picking up dry cleaning or walking our dogs — though we do love a quality cup o’ Joe and like dogs better than most humans. Instead, we want you to experience our team as if you were an entry-level, full-time staffer.

Our summer program is full but check back for updated info in the fall. Responsibilities for all the internships we offer are listed below.

Aaron Feight

Email Marketing Specialist

My peers and superiors at The Brandon Agency not only encourage me to continue gaining knowledge, they actively push me to do so, and help guide me if and when I fall short.

Cassidy Graves

Social Media Associate

What I loved most about my TBA internship was that everyone on my team WANTED me to learn. I learned so much that came in handy when I got offered a position here.

Johnnie Sharp

Social Media Associate

The best part of my TBA internship was that I was doing real tasks that full-time employees do. I was doing research for content, writing content and even some content posting. From my very first day at TBA, I felt like I was part of the TBA team and not just an intern.

Kayla Conner

Junior Video Editor

My favorite part about interning at TBA was working on a commercial with another intern, then seeing the commercial come on the TV at home!

Kiersten Kane

Project Manager

The first thing that comes to mind when I think back on my time as an intern is that I learned much more from my internship at TBA than I did in any college class that I ever took. It was real-world experience that I could not get from sitting in front of a professor and a whiteboard.
