Internship Opportunity – Graphic Design

Published October 6, 2015

Salter>Mitchell is a national advertising, public relations and social marketing firm founded by people who met working on the “truth” anti-tobacco campaign. While only employing about 30 full-time professionals, Salter>Mitchell works on large-scale national and statewide behavior-change efforts, many of them aimed at protecting the environment, advancing public health, improving working conditions or simply boosting the popularity of a product that makes the planet a better place to live. Their clients have included the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Florida Commerce Credit Union, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Florida Department of Health, Florida Chamber of Commerce, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Planned Parenthood Federation of America.

Interns become integral, if temporary, members of project teams and typically work 20-30 hours a week. An internship is the primary path to full-time employment at Salter>Mitchell, but is far from a guarantee. Salter>Mitchell seeks interns interested in more than errand running and Internet research. As a small firm working on a national scale, they rely on interns to add creativity and intelligence to our marketing team, as ready to write, design and interview as to collate and photocopy. Salter>Mitchell wants people who are passionate about working and eager to learn. Graduate students in design, communications, marketing, public relations, IT, journalism, psychology, or creative writing programs are preferred, but they will also consider recent graduates looking for experience as well as undergraduates in their junior or senior years with demonstrated abilities in design, writing, research, marketing, public relations or advertising. Besides seeking diversity in our workplace, Salter>Mitchell prefers interns who are personable, creative and blessed with a good sense of humor. Our written personnel rules also restrict hiring as follows: Successful job applicants must be nice.

Preferred skills are as follows: Proficient in Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop/Illustrator/InDesign) and a knowledge of basic design principles.

To apply, please send a snappy cover letter and a resume that clearly describes your expertise with PHP, HTML, CSS, Javascript and jQuery, along with links to samples of your work to our internship program manager, Stefanie Stricklin, at
