Our Program

Why intern for us? Because we like coffee. Especially Radina’s. We need caffeine and we just used our last k-cup. Just kidding, that was a joke. But what isn’t a joke is our one-of-a-kind summer internship, Empower. JNT Company is looking for insanely curious, passionate, and skillful interns that want to work and learn while challenging, designing, contemplating, laughing, strategizing, coding, and celebrating everything a marketing agency has to offer right by our side this summer. Empower is an extraordinary, get your hands dirty kind of internship. We believe in giving you real world experience with real world clients.

Things our interns will get to do (besides bring us coffee, kidding—again!)

  • 5-week internship runs May 21 to June 22
  • Open to marketing, communications, journalism, advertising, public relations, design, and computer science majors

What did the interns have to say about Empower?

“With the lack of knowledge on how internships usually work, I was nervous to begin working with a company I had only heard good things about. While JNT specializes in marketing and web design, meeting with the other interns proved that JNT was seeking people with varying interests and skills. JNT has created an internship experience that in only a few short weeks, has allowed their interns to know what working in a fast-paced environment is like. Everyone at the company was willing to help whenever there was a question or to lend a guiding hand. The Empower Internship is a great first step for someone with no previous experience.”

“As a starting intern in the JNT Empower program, I knew that I would be working in Marketing, my current major, but did not expect to have the opportunity to learn & work first hand with Developers & Graphic designers. I saw myself grow in other departments that I never imagined my skills fitting into. In the end, I was chosen as one of the interns to work with JNT through the summer, and now continuing through my Senior year at K-State. The employees at JNT make you feel that what you are doing is truly helping your clients, you are not just fulfilling a list of tasks that you need to get done for the week. The experience that you will get working at JNT is unlike any other internship in the Manhattan area.”

“As a Computer Science major The JNT Empower program was a great opportunity for me to experience the full breadth of what is required when building a website for a client. It was very eye-opening because I was able to see first-hand the process required to meet the needs of the client.”

Why Jeff Loves Empowering Interns

“Empower was created to build an opportunity for students who want to understand and experience working with real clients and their needs. The first thing that I noticed was the extensive gap in the current possibilities for Kansas State students to gain access to a nearby hands-on internship. JNT works with companies in Manhattan and allows students to fully dive into projects while effectively impacting the community. We guide you to possible tactics that are available, but in the end, allow the product to be built by the minds of the interns.  Ultimately, we wanted to give students an opportunity to understand the business world with realistic steps such as budget, timelines, and project management. With our first year of Empower, the amount of skill and possibilities shown exceeded our expectation and I hope to see more this upcoming summer. ”
