This opportunity is generously supported by the Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD) Paid College Internship Program. AAMD’s program is designed to engage college students from underrepresented backgrounds, to encourage and nurture their career opportunities in the art museum field—while providing the
financial support necessary to make participation in an internship possible.
With a focus on the promotion of the Jewish Museum’s two summer exhibitions, Modern Look: Photography and the American Magazine and We Fight to Build a Free World, an Exhibition by Jonathan Horowitz, the Marketing & Advertising Intern will assist in the conceptualization, fulfillment, and analysis of marketing actions in support of audience development, attendance, and revenue goals. Under the guidance of the Associate Director of Marketing, the internship will culminate in the intern preparing a case study for one of the summer exhibitions, summarizing campaign strategy, ad metrics, and KPIs (key performance indicators) including visitor intercept data, advance online ticket sales, general and public programs attendance, exhibition-related Shop product revenue, and new member joins. The Marketing & Advertising Intern will also have the opportunity to contribute to strategic planning for the promotion of the Museum’s fall 2020 exhibitions and their related offerings. The Jewish Museum marketing department serves as an arm of the Museum’s “in-house agency” which services the promotional needs of “client” departments across the organization. The marketing department spearheads all marketing and advertising initiatives in partnership and consultation with the Digital, Design, Visitor Experience, and Communications departments.
The Jewish Museum is committed to diversifying its internship pool to more adequately reflect its diverse audiences. The Museum therefore encourage candidates from a broad range of cultural, racial, and religious backgrounds and experiences, especially those which have been historically under-represented among museum professionals. As an identity-based institution, the Jewish Museum believes that serving the full breadth of its community requires cultural competency and enthusiasm for diversity of all kinds.
