Do you like figuring out what makes people tick? Are you an eager observer of culture and consumer behavior? Do you like discovering trends and insights through data and research? Are you a creative thinker, with a passion for learning? Can you make data come to life through storytelling?
If so, we should talk.
Strategic planners combine research and critical thinking to bring the consumer into the advertising process. The strategic planning intern plays an active, important role in the Strategy department. S/he will work closely with all the departments at Cactus to develop rock solid consumer insights and integrated advertising campaigns for a variety of state, national and international clients.
