We seek senior students majoring in advertising who have strong graphic design and writing ability and are able to produce print collateral and design website pages using MAC programs. 


They will work collaboratively with company team members to produce advertising and marketing materials for company clients.


They will also be conducting research related to understanding the company’s clients and their competition in the marketplace. Based on their research, they may make marketing suggestions and create original material aimed at building business for selected clients. Interns will be encouraged to think independently and creatively to feel comfortable offering ideas and perspectives.


Interns will report directly to the company owner, but will receive support and direction from staff designers.


Interns will be working both onsite and remotely, depending on scheduling and deadlines of particular projects. They will be expected to work on site a minimum of one day a week. 


They may be asked to attend team meetings via Zoom, if their university class schedule does not conflict with times.


The number of hours worked to complete the required 1, 2 or 3 credits is negotiable, depending on the interns credit needs and university schedule.


Interested applicants may apply for internship by going to River City Consulting’s site and filling out the contact form. Applicants should list their specific skills and design programs they know how to use. Or you may apply by contacting Anne Lacy at
