Summer Intern, Cross Function

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 2019. 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 skill set (and your mind), and are passionate about marketing – Global Prairie is the place for you.

The Global Prairie Summer Internship Program is a 9-week program, running from June 3 through August 2, 2019.

As a Global Prairie intern, you will partner with our Global Prairie team to support the innovation creation, flawless implementation and successful management of our clients’ businesses. You will work hard, contribute to the success of our rapidly growing company and, along the way, learn what it is like to build a company that is focused on cultivating a healthier world. A Global Prairie intern is nimble, a go-getter and is up to any challenge big and small. If you are ready to jump in head first, keep reading below.

Our model is different, by design. One part creative agency, one part data analytics firm and one part consulting company,  we are a different breed of marketing consulting that embraces a depth of thinking, nimbleness and innovative approach our clients crave. Because we don’t operate as a traditional agency in terms of process, structure or output, we look for team members with an entrepreneurial spirit who embrace innovation and are comfortable in the gray areas.

Everyone at Global Prairie shares the following characteristics:

  • Highly collaborative
  • Philanthropic and engaged in the community
  • Optimistic attitude
  • Strong and resilient nature
  • Flexible
  • Curious

 Strong candidates for this specific role will exemplify the following characteristics:

  • Outgoing and friendly demeanor
  • Organized, with strong ability to multi-task
  • Problem solver
  • Self-starter with an ability to follow-through

Working across our teams and all our nine Global Prairie offices, this individual will be responsible for a variety of tasks, such as:

  • Assist Global Prairie team members in development of client project needs from start to finish
  • Develop skill set in strategy, creative development, social media management, earned media outreach, internal communication, and much more
  • Solve problems through existing knowledge, research and analysis
  • Coordinate activities and office functionality of home-base office


  • Junior, senior or recent graduate from a four-year college or university, or graduate student between their first and second years of business school

  1. You don’t have to be a wizard in iMovie or any other video program. The content of the video is what’s most important. Bonus points for creative ways to bring it to life!
  2. Be creative! We want to see your personality and your passion. Think of ideas outside the box that include more than just recording yourself talking on camera for two minutes.
  3. Upload the video to Vimeo, YouTube, or another video sharing platform and paste the link in the "website, blog or portfolio" field.
  4. Double check that your video is public. If you make it private, we will not be able to access or view the video.
  5. Check your surroundings! Make sure they are appropriate and a good reflection of yourself and your professionalism.

The physical activity required of this position includes standing, walking, lifting, pulling, pushing, kneeling, reaching, stooping, talking, hearing and use of repetitive motion.  Light work is required of this position, occasionally lifting or moving objects between 10-20 pounds.  The visual acuity of this position requires the ability to operate a motor vehicle.  This position will not be substantially exposed to adverse environmental conditions.

Creativity, great ideas and lasting impact come from diverse teams. Global Prairie is proud to be an equal opportunity employer.
