Talent Management Intern


VSA Partners is a design-driven branding and marketing company.

VSA was founded as a design firm more than 30 years ago with the belief that design is not only a craft but a tool for achieving business objectives. As design thinkers, we approach business challenges holistically and aim to break down silos between branding, digital, marketing and advertising.


A little bit about the VSA Summer AtHometernship Program: If you’re looking for another bullet point on your resume, look elsewhere. At VSA, like much of what we do, we take our internship program seriously. This means our interns work on “real work,” with real meetings, deadlines, and business challenges from our brands and clients. This is the education you won’t get in a classroom. Consider it career practice, with the freedom to learn, make mistakes, refine, question and tag along. You’ll work with an individual manager and a group of mentors in an outstanding cross-disciplinary environment focused on brand, communications, marketing, and digital. As part of the larger program, you’ll take part in intern meetings, team outings, activities, and initiatives (can you say networking?). And yes, it’s paid, with an hourly rate, for 40 hours/week, on-site. It starts June 7th. Bet you can’t wait for summer.


VSA’s Talent Management Team is made up of empathetic problem solvers with deep experience in Talent Acquisition and Resource Management, who help the agency operate efficiently and with purpose. We care about the people on our teams and love to be part of helping them create great work. We focus on the people, processes, tools and systems that help make VSA an ideal place to work and perform.
