Interns Wanted


April 26, 2022 - Blog

If you’re a college student who is a creative thinker looking to grow your skills, we’re interested in having you intern with us at Consociate Media.

We’re a marketing, media and management firm located in Gloucester Point that focuses on storytelling as it relates to strategic communications, copy writing, website design, graphic design, social media management, corporate photography and videography. Your interest might be in one or several of these areas, but you’ll get a taste of it all surrounded by a team of fun industry professionals dedicated to their craft.

As an intern, you will be hands-on and trusted to help with a variety of projects for a client base that extends throughout Virginia (and beyond). We cater to a diverse portfolio of clients from breweries to nonprofit organizations to government agencies. You’ll learn from us, but we also want to learn from you. You will bring fresh eyes and a valuable perspective.

We aren’t micromanagers here, and we don’t follow the typical corporate structure. Some days will call for nontraditional hours, but we also don’t mind being flexible when your schedule calls for it. We do ask that you bring it every day. Be willing, be hungry to learn and help out in a pinch, stay positive and always feel free to speak up with your own ideas.

You’ll be a contributor to a team that brainstorms ideas for content, engages with clients, performs marketing analysis and research trends and learns how to analyze their results. That’s just a sampling of how you’ll spend your summer.

This is a paid opportunity. We don’t work for free and don’t expect our interns to do that, either.

How to apply

Send us a cover letter introducing yourself. Remember, storytelling is our brand, so don’t repeat what’s on your resume, which we’d also like to see. Let us know what interests you, why you want to intern with us at Consociate Media, and who you are as a person. If you have samples of your work that are either professional or classwork, please attach them. We’d love it if you have experience in photography, videography and/or graphic design.

We have a limited number of opportunities for interns (rolling applications accepted throughout the year), so the sooner you can send your materials, the better.

Email everything to Stephanie Heinatz at stephanie@consociatemedia.com.

You could say that little guy was Consociate Media’s first intern. He’s the son of Founder Stephanie Heinatz and a little young for our internship program, but we couldn’t resist the opportunity to use this pic (taken during the early days of Consociate Media sometime around 2012-2013).
