The Social Media Intern at FITZ & CO will report to the Senior Account Executive in the Social Media department. The Social Media Internship Program is an exciting opportunity for full-time students to gain professional experience in the social media field, while working closely with the best of the art world in New York and around the world.
The Program is divided into three core focus areas: 1) FITZ & CO Social Media, 2) Select Client Work, and 3) Special Projects. Within each of these sectors you will be given tasks that you are 1) responsible for, 2) provide support in, and 3) that allow you the opportunity to develop a project or idea of your own. In each of these areas, you will gain experience a range of social media management tasks, including content planning and production, monitoring and analytics, back-end systems and processes, database management, and more.
Your time at FITZ & CO will be divided into daily set tasks, an ongoing rotation of individual projects, and between 1–3 off-site projects, depending on availability and performance. During the course of the internship you will also have the opportunity to attend select FITZ & CO outings and/or client events, along with a range of gatherings that take place in our office. During your final week at FITZ & CO you will be provided with an end-of-program review session and feedback for summarizing key takeaways to be applied towards updating your C.V.
