The Jellyvision Lab, Inc. is a small (80 people or so), creative, focused, and driven company, with a strong vision for bringing interactive communication to the web for Fortune 500 partners. Founded by the same folks who created the hit YOU DON’T KNOW JACK® game series, the Lab has expanded Jellyvision’s roster of engaging personalities beyond virtual game show hosts to virtual teachers, insurance agents, salespeople, advisors… you name it. We're a digital marketing agency that has pioneered a new approach to interactivity called Interactive Conversation that allows machines to communicate more like people. Not in that AI robot sort of way, but in a radio/television, written-by-writers, performed-by-actors sort of way.
That’s lovely, but what’s this I hear about an internship program?
For Summer 2013, The Jellyvision Lab, Inc. is looking for a select group of interns to join the company, learn about what we do and how we do it, and contribute to the conversations and marketing services we provide to our amazing clients. Before we get to the specific roles we’re looking to fill, here’s the lowdown on the internship program in general:
• Open to rising seniors and recent grads - you must be graduating (or scheduled to graduate) in 2013 or 2014 to be eligible to apply.
• 10 week program running from June 10 to August 16 – you must be available for all 10 weeks to be eligible to apply.
• Non-local interns will be responsible for their own travel and lodging necessary to be available in Chicago for the 10 weeks of the program.
• Interns will receive a $5,000 stipend for the summer. (If you would prefer to receive credit for the internship rather than the stipend, let us know the name of the contact person at your school who can approve internships for credit and we will see if we can arrange a for-credit internship according to your school’s guidelines.)
Beyond the stipend, what does the Jellyvision internship program offer students?
• The opportunity to contribute to Jellyvision’s award-winning interactive products through specific short-term assignments, as well as a summer-long, collaborative project that will tap into the collective insight of the 2013 summer intern class.
• Mentoring and feedback from members of Jellyvision’s talented and thoughtful staff.
• Lunch presentations by superstars throughout the company on issues relevant to successful start-up companies in the tech/communications space.
• Summer social events designed to give interns exposure to staff outside their core work area within the company.
• Bottom line – the opportunity to do good work, with fun people, in a relaxed and casual environment.
