Interesting opportunities in marketing

November 3, 2015

I recently visited Influence & Co, a marketing firm with primary locations in Columbia and St. Louis, MO and a smaller presence in Kansas City and New York City. The opportunities with this company are impressive and they primarily look at skill sets rather than major when recruiting, so if you are interested, you need to “market” your transferable skills.

They offer paid Internships in Account Services for which Marketing, Communication, and English majors are often good fits, as well as Publication for which English, Public Relations, and Communication majors are often good fits. They do consider freshmen, sophomores and juniors for internships.
Skills sought include:
• People focused
• Strong verbal and written communication
• Analytical/creative problem solvers
• Hardworking intrinsically motivated to succeed

We are working on getting Influence & Co on campus earlier but they plan to be here for the Spring Career & Grad School Expo on February 24, 2016. Be sure to check them out!
