Have you ever wondered what it would be like to sit alongside Walt Disney as he illustrated Mickey Mouse for the first time? Or what it would be like to stand shoulder to shoulder with Gaudi as he built his life's work, The Cathedral of the Sagrada Familia? How about lying down next to Michelangelo on a piece of scaffolding as he painted God on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel?
As a Marketing Intern at Blue Acorn, you would get a chance to do just that, except you would work alongside the the Marketing Manager and Content Manager creating marketing materials and erecting figurative monuments to our brand, which many people consider to be way better. If you’re now thinking to yourself, I wonder what it would have been like to stand shoulder to shoulder with whatever brilliant human being wrote this job description, then you're much further along than you could ever know.

Interns at Blue Acorn thrive within a healthy, balanced work environment with the potential to build a career. All that is just HR jargon though; you'll spend most of your time fighting dragons in outer space.
