Internship Job Description

70kft is a fast-growing, downtown Dallas integrated brand communications agency. Our team environment is awesome. Our work pushes the envelope. Our integrated model stands unique with few true competitors.

70kft maintains three core competencies: brand graphic design, public relations and digital marketing (SEO/PPC). Additionally, to better serve interactive clients, the agency maintains in-house copywriting and Web development teams.

70kft leadership believes passionately in the value of intern team members. They believe internship programs should be two-pronged in that they spur on education for the student and benefit client work product. The focus is on respect and opportunity at every turn.

Because 70kft will benefit from a current student or recent graduate’s talent, we believe they must be paid a fair wage and treated with great dignity. Hourly rate will be determined based on level of experience of each internship candidate.
