Do you like digital? Do you like strategy? Do you like making unique phrases out of two word combinations, maybe even out of the two words I JUST said? Are you smart enough to search for things on google like “horrible yet funny intern picture” like I just did AND THEN embed it in a blog post (hint: I, too, was once an intern)? My GOD do we have a job for you.

Mekanism is looking for a f*%king awesome Digital Strategist/PR intern. They’d be working closely with our (wait for it) Digital Strategist and the rest of our Social Media Syndication Team, which I just capitalized due to the nature of their importance. They would be..wait I don’t want to write this all here, full description down below.

Honestly: working here has been statistically compared to what it feels like the first time you laughed as a small child and/or the first time you enjoyed anything in your life, ever. That’s just science. Description below. I will now write in all caps where to apply.


Thanks. We love you already.
