Call for Strategy Interns 2022
WHO WE ARE
Gemic is a global growth strategy firm with offices in Berlin, New York, and Toronto. We help some of the largest global companies solve their most difficult growth strategy challenges. As business-minded creative strategists, we are grounded by the methods of the social sciences and design, inspired by the humanities, and reinforced by the analytical rigor of strategy consulting. We are anthropologists, philosophers, designers, economists, sociologists, political scientists, and futurists.
We hail from over 10 countries, speak 14 languages and always work in small teams that carry a project from inception, through research and strategy, into design-led solutions. More than anything, though, we care deeply about what the future will look like, feel like, and mean.
We know that in order to reimagine the future, the present must be unapologetically fun, healthy, and interesting. So, in addition to having some of the sharpest minds and personalities around, we offer our strategists a strong commitment to work-life balance through generous paid time off for vacations, creativity, and volunteer work, employer-paid benefits, and a vibrant company culture.
THE GEMIC INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
Our full-time internship program is a three- to four-month paid engagement, during which you’ll be based out of one of our offices and expected to hit the ground running as a key member of one of our project teams. In addition to taking part in different project phases (including potentially traveling for fieldwork and client meetings), you’ll have a senior team member as your mentor to support your development.
Our internships are a springboard to potential full-time employment, so we look for people who, if hired, could start immediately or soon after this engagement ends.
For more details about our internships, please our FAQ page.
We are looking to place interns for Winter 2022 with possible start dates from December 2021 through March/April 2022. The start dates for the internships are flexible and hence we will tailor the specific timing, duration, and location separately with each successful applicant. You’ll be offered monthly compensation – Berlin: €2,100 (EUR); New York: $3,600 (USD); Toronto: $3,700 (CAD).
