How is WJA different from other marketing departments?

In the Marketing & Sales department at WJA, we are a small, but mighty team. With our focus on strategy and specialized expertise, we're able to produce more high-performing content than many of our competitors with teams of a greater size or agency assistance. Our team is tight-knit and leaves egos at the door, which enables us to create immediate impact for the firm's bottom line.

For our team, we're not looking for "just another intern" to join us- we're bringing someone on as our fourth team member to tackle our projects alongside us for the full duration of their time with us. You'll solve real-world business projects and get to offer and implement solutions. As such, we provide a competitive compensation package and offer access to continuing education, networking, and corporate events to our interns.

We embody the "work hard, play hard" mentalitywhile free coffee, soda, and snacks are a given, we frequently have company happy hours, themed potlucks, and celebratory team lunches on the calendar to connect with one another outside of our work.

Lastly, this isn't a coffee-and-errands internship. The size of our team offers an opportunity for cross-training and interdisciplinary collaboration with subject matter experts. As the marketing intern, you'll discuss strategy with leadership, pull together content with the finance and tax teams, and even work with the investment and operations teams for various projects. At WJA, we're continuously learning and sharing our knowledge with one another, so, if you come with a willingness to ask and discover, you won't be disappointed.
