business development

Level: Growth Internship

Type: 3 month contract with possible extension

Develop your interpersonal skills while learning about branding and helping businesses grow.

Are you a good communicator? Do you have the ability to grab someone’s attention in the first few seconds of meeting them? Do people pay attention when you speak? Are you able to communicate ideas in ways that truly sink in? If you answered yes to all these questions, we want to hear from you.

If your answer is “No, but I want to learn!” then we want to hear from you too.

What you’ll be doing

We’re looking for an enthusiastic and driven individual that wants to help businesses secure government funding to improve their branding and online presence. You’ll be contacting small and medium sized businesses throughout specific geographical areas in Ontario and communicating two main ideas:

  1. The importance of branding and online presence to their business growth.
  2. The limited-time opportunity they currently have to secure free government funding to spend on these elements of their business.

What you’ll learn

The world’s most successful entrepreneurs agree that effective communication is the most important skill to have, and that’s what we’re going to help you develop. You’ll learn how to write, speak and convey ideas more effectively, becoming a more influential, respected and persuasive communicator.

You’ll also learn about the fundamentals of branding and how in today’s world, businesses without a brand are starting to go extinct. We’ll teach you how to communicate these ideas to business owners by using their kind of language. Best of all, because you’ll be speaking with business owners from various industries, you’ll be learning about business itself.

What you’ll earn

The first three months of this internship are unpaid, in terms of salary. You will however be paid for your efforts in the form of a commission structure, which we look forward to negotiating with you, while giving you your first lesson in communication;)

full-stack visual design

Level: Growth Internship

Type: 6 month contract with possible extension

Develop a wider range of creative skills and grow as a designer!

Do you have artistic talent? Can you draw well? Do you have strong attention to detail? Do you have experience with visual design tools like Sketch or the Adobe Creative suite? Are you curious about or have you dabbled in video editing or motion design? Have you ever built or designed a website for yourself or someone else?

 If you answered yes to any of these questions, we want to hear from you!

What you’ll be doing

We’re a branding and design agency and we’re looking for a talented creative that can learn quickly. You’ll be helping us design logos, visual identities and promotional materials for our clients, (which are generally small and medium sized businesses, with the occasional behemoth).

What you’ll learn

Because every client has different needs, there’s a very good chance you’ll have the opportunity to learn completely new design skills that you’ll grow to love! This includes designing user-friendly website layouts (don’t worry, you won’t need to learn code – unless you want to!), digital animations using adobe after effects, and Scalable Vector Graphics.

You’ll also be learning about the strategic and psychological concepts that go into designing a brand to help a business grow. These are all skills and experiences that will increase your market value as a creative professional, full-stack designer, and even a strategist!

What you’ll earn
