About Strategy3:

What makes this role important at Ipsos?

Our interns work as short-term Associate Consultants, playing key roles in delivering on our client engagements, assisting in executive interviews, conducting primary and secondary research, preparing deliverables, and crafting compelling storylines to clients such as such as Target, Starbucks, Merrill, AB InBev, Cigna and Uber. As part of our client service teams, you will be working both laterally and vertically with our team of Partners, Engagement Managers, and Consultants to ensure that our ideas are flawlessly presented and inspiring to both our clients and the marketing community.


Typical engagements include developing brand strategies, segmenting customer audiences, understanding consumer journeys, envisioning future growth pathways, and guiding innovation strategy.


You will join a unique team of creative thinkers who come from backgrounds as diverse as market research, brand management, consulting, finance, trend tracking, and start-ups―all of whom come together with a diversity of ideas to transform the consulting services industry.


We have seen double-digit growth for the past several years, and have expanded our global presence, opening and expanding offices in the US, London, Shanghai, Paris, Beijing, and more. This growth will allow you unparalleled access, early in your career, to leading marketing thinkers, clients, and brands, while providing you fantastic opportunity to take on leadership challenges.


For a relentless, visionary, and centered thinker who thrives on feedback and challenge, this is a unique opportunity for both personal and professional growth.


This might be the job for you if you have:


The ideal candidate will bring a unique blend of both analytical and creative skills to bear on our client’s problems: someone who is as comfortable working in Excel as they are binge watching the latest popular series and making a convincing case for why their favorite season is indeed the best. Our approach to solving problems requires that level of fluidity, comprehensiveness, confidence, and executive presence.


  • Able to commit to an internship period of 10+ weeks
  • Able to work onsite in our NYC or Chicago offices
  • Pursuing an undergraduate degree with an expected graduation date in Spring 2024
  • Interest in branding/marketing, management consulting, brand management, or market research
  • Strong time management & detail orientation with ability to juggle multiple projects
  • Strives to take on leadership responsibilities, both vertically and laterally
  • Ease and confidence with “thinking on your feet” and taking the first stab at solving problems
  • Strong business acumen, solution-orientation and critical thinking skills
  • Love of, and nose for, brands, marketing, and innovation
  • Impeccable interpersonal and communication skills, written and verbal
  • Oversized personal impact and ability to serve as a “culture add”- we’re not looking for people who “fit our mold”; rather, we want to bring on team members who will mold our culture by pushing us to think in new ways
  • In addition to those qualifications, one of the key things we have in common is the ability to tie together disparate pieces of information (from primary research, social media, from census data, from keen observation) into a compelling story, and tell it in a way that is engaging and memorable.
  • Oh, and being able to laugh at yourself will take you far with us.


If you don’t meet 100% of the requirements, we encourage all who feel they might be a fit for the opportunity to apply. We may consider a variety of backgrounds for a particular role and are also committed to considering candidates for available positions throughout our organization, not just the one you’re applying to!


In addition to sending your resume, we’d appreciate your sharing an answer to the following question: In 250 words or less, please tell us about a brand or organization you would like to work with as a brand strategy consultant and why.
