Cactus

Interactive Internship

Type of work: Internship
Location: Denver, CO
Company URL: http://sharpideas.com
Date Posted: April 16th, 2013
Description:

At Cactus, we know that great portfolios and resumes are not built on trips to the coffee shop and other menial tasks. They're built on hard work and real advertising experience. Sure “real advertising experience” includes the occasional menial task, but we promise to keep them to a minimum. Instead you will get 9-weeks of real, career-building experience. The highlight? A campaign you’ll create with the other interns for your very own client. At the end of the summer, you’ll have work for your portfolio or resume. And absolutely no clue what hot beverage their boss drinks. Which we think is a good thing.

Description:
Do you find yourself right clicking on websites to view the source? Are you interested in design and development? Want to take a crack at learning and working at the same time?

We are looking for someone who has a strong interest in all things web and interactive. Our intern needs an eye for detail and can't be scared to get their hands dirty.

Position Summary:
Cactus is looking for an interactive intern. This position will assist the rest of the interactive team in day-to-day tasks and production. They will prep assets, assist in testing and even build a few things. The ideal candidate will be a self motivated individual who is willing to try anything and learn. Passion is also important. You may not be an interactive guru and we don't expect you to be, but we want someone who is genuinely interested in the web and creating things for it; apps, microsites, banners, emails, websites and more. Creativity is a must, as you will be helping concept and execute ideas - big and small.
