Paid Marketing Internships

Empower and improve the lives of Wisconsinites and beyond


Work with a team of caring individuals and gain holistic experience in all departments of a marketing agency including account services, digital, creative, media, and production. There may be opportunities to support new business development, social media, and administration as well.

We encourage our interns to use their voices in every meeting—all opinions matter. Interns have helped influence campaigns that have prevented and reversed opioid overdoses, increased COVID-19 vaccination rates, driven enrollment in higher ed, and decreased substance use disorders and HIV stigma.

 KW2’s mission to empower and improve lives extends to our employees as well. We help fortify critical skills in communications, creative thinking, strategic problem solving, and leadership. Our goal is to provide our interns with the tools they need to succeed in their careers.

“My experience at KW2 taught me so much about breaking conventions and impactful leadership. Working with both the account and creative sides allowed insights into various departments and career tracks in advertising – ultimately equipping me with the creative strategy and communication skills necessary to break into consulting.”

"My favorite thing about my time at KW2 was working with a variety of smart team members with different backgrounds, that were all united in their desire to make an impact for our clients and their customers. This was especially true in the important work KW2 does for public sector clients, and initiatives like Goodstock."
