We’re a team of brand strategists, project managers and do’ers that have uncovered insights, given brands a purpose, drove product innovation, designed experiences and charted roadmaps for clients ranging from startups to global mega-brands. We do this with our own brand purpose - Do Great Work, Live Great Lives - as our north star.
Our structure is flexing and organic, our work is project-only and our projects are defined by clients and brands who are trying to create a shift in themselves or in the world.
We are looking for the next pup to join the Pack. We attract the mavericks - those that are looking for a better way to work and live - and those that aren’t afraid to roll up their sleeves and get in there with us. We have fun and our work is premium - we’re looking for someone who wants to work and hustle and learn how to create best-in-class strategy.
JOB TITLE AND OVERVIEW
We are looking for a Strategy Intern for the Spring 2018 semester to join the Pack.
A Strategy Intern at W&W primarily operates as a researcher and collaborator under full-time and freelance strategists. This arrangement also means that the strategist’s role is to teach you and help continue your learning and growth. There will be assignments and projects where you will be able to spread your wings and handle more responsibility under the direction of a strategist. Each of us brings hardcore expertise in what we do, and as a collective, we are outsiders brave enough to pursue, through our own lives and the work that we do, a vision of what the future can be. While we are not expecting you to bring hardcore expertise, we are expecting you to bring the hunger to develop it.
We’re looking for someone to be part of a small team and gain hands-on experience. This position will be part-time and applicants do not need to receive college credit.
YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES IN THIS ROLE
Your job responsibilities will be aligned with that of a Strategy Intern: the work traits, skills and management. But we expect you to continue to grow, and if you’re interested, begin to reach into junior strategist level skills when you’re ready.
At W&W, we use a framework that lays out the work traits, skills and management of every level of strategist, from intern to director. We would expect that you are operating (or soon operating) at the Strategy Intern level as laid out below:
Pull relevant data and research quickly
Contribute to internal discussions
Help coordinate research/workshops
Learn the W&W deck and doc formats to contribute to the creation of presentations/reports
W&W'S RESPONSIBILITIES TO YOU
W&W is founded on a philosophy of balance and growth. As part of that, there are responsibilities the company will owe to you:
Dedicated time and attention to your growth. Through weekly check-ins and ongoing iterative feedback to track your progress and help you grow.
Education opportunities. Because we can’t teach you everything (surprisingly), we’re open to your proposing classes, books or other educational materials to further your growth within financial reason in addition to our Wolf School program.
Outside of the skills outlined above, candidates should possess the following:
High attention to detail
A problem-solving mentality
A good attitude and good energy
An understanding and enthusiasm for broader culture and trends
The ability to operate well in a non-structured environment
Initiative and independence
