Job Description: As a diverse, fast-growing company, RESPEC needs a creative marketing summer intern in Rapid City, South Dakota, who has some hustle and is ready to get their hands dirty in the real-world marketing scene. This internship is an opportunity to work with our seasoned marketing team to create compelling, fresh visual and written content for a progressive engineering and technology company.

We need someone who is passionate about design and layout and knows how to make various types of information on a page eye-catching and cohesive. You’ll support our marketing team with your design expertise on a variety of printed materials (e.g., brochures, monthly newsletters, white papers, and conference/career fair setups); your creative flair in creating social media content; and your knack for organization in print production, document packaging, and analyzing social media metrics.

This internship is an opportunity to be a part of weekly marketing team meetings to help brainstorm, build, and manage our content/project calendar. You’ll gain an understanding of brand identity and how to adhere to brand guidelines while still putting your creative side to work. By the time your internship is over, you’ll know what it’s like to work on a fun, close-knit marketing team who really enjoys what they do.
