STRATEGY RESIDENT (Intern)
Strategy | Oakland, CA | Internship
Hello, we’re EVB. We use creativity and our grasp of culture to make brands meaningful, profitable and famous.
Here’s the truth: If a brand ignores culture, culture will ignore the brand. As a full-service agency, we partner with brands to help solve their business challenges by boosting their cultural relevancy. We do this with a signature approach that blends emerging technology, behavioral insights, digital trends and a core understanding of the digital native.
Our job goes beyond the typical shout tactics of advertising. We develop press-worthy ideas, meaningful platforms, useful utilities and entertaining social currency that connect on an authentic and intimate level, resulting in natural participation, co-creation, sharing and good ol’ fashioned brand love.
We don’t help brands join the conversation. We help brands be the conversation.
EVB is unique in that we have a diverse range of clients and an even more diverse array of projects. And that means the role of strategy is equally multi-faceted. We may play the role of traditional brand planner on one project and business consultant on another. We are looking for a strategic and creative thinker who is not only curious but looks at the world through a unique lens. You are excited, proactive, and attuned to trends and movements in culture, technology and social media as they relate to our industry. We don't need someone who has all the right answers as much as someone who asks the right questions and proactively seeks fertile solutions to get there.
Proactive, reliable and accountable
Strong critical thinking skills
Passionate not just about ideas, but how they are articulated
Ability to present your thoughts in creative ways (keynote, video etc.)
Actively participate in brainstorms
