Summer Internship: Marketing & Communications Intern

Hencove, a creative marketing and communications agency based in Watertown, is seeking highly motivated, creative, and inquisitive students to join our summer internship program.

Interns will collaborate closely and work alongside our team of experienced marketers and communications professionals. The internship is designed to give students a hands-on, behind-the-scenes-look into life at a full-service marketing agency. As a small, nimble agency, the internship program provides students direct access to a variety of marketing and communications disciplines: branding, social media, website development, writing, public relations, advertising, SEO, and more.

Hencove is proud to offer interns a nurturing work environment with built-in mentoring and professional development. Summer interns will work in our office in Watertown Square, located within walking distance to public transportation and other amenities. Responsibilities include:

We like to think, write, draw, and brainstorm. We debate until we’re confident. We push, poke and prod, until the best idea wins. We bond over trivia. We debate sports, pop culture, and the best local lunch options. We like our fancy coffee, and teas. We’re building a library of great books. We’re transparent – even our walls are made of glass. We speak our mind.

We’re defined as much by who we are, as by what’s missing. There are no silos and no ladders; no walls and no offices. But, above all else, we’re a team. We trust, support, and encourage each other. And we’re committed to being better, and making each other better.
