THE OPPORTUNITY

Global Prairie is looking for high energy and high impact individuals to join our Global Prairie team as a member of our summer intern class for 2020. In this role, you’ll work across our nine offices to use your talents to help drive marketing as a force for good – all while working for a 100% employee-owned company.

This isn’t your run-of-the-mill internship. You’ll be working with our other interns and team members across the globe to work with our clients who make a positive impact on the world.  And we’ll expose you to our own global mindset by bringing all our summer interns around the globe to Kansas City during your first week to cement your intern team dynamic.

Are you sold yet? If you want to make the world a better place, expand your skillset (and your mind), and are passionate about marketing – Global Prairie is the place for you.

The Global Prairie Summer Internship Program is an 8-week program, running from June 8 through July 31, 2019.
