Your daily responsibilities will include, but are not limited to:

What can I expect as a Pheno intern?

To learn. A lot. As an independent shop, we don’t bring interns in just to have them lie around and mutely sit in meetings. Pheno interns get the opportunity to work on real client asks alongside the rest of the creative department. We believe that the best idea wins, no matter who brings it in, so it’s not an uphill battle either. So if you want to get your hands dirty, learn from people who pride themselves on not taking the road most traveled, and discover how to disrupt and effect change across a wide variety of products and services, then Phenomenon is the place for you.

Pay: Yes! We’re not savages. $15/hour
