Joining Purina means you're joining our larger mission of enriching the lives of pets and the people who love them – a dare of integrity, passion, expertise, high performance, and innovation.

Our Branded Marketing internship will offer you up-close and personal experiences with billion dollar brands that are changing the way our customers and consumers see pet care. You'll actively learn through real-world marketing projects derived from our real-time business or community needs, including the facilitation of new product introductions, market research, consumer promotions and advertising development.

Your 12 weeks assigned to one of our brand teams will challenge your analytical, strategic and creative wit. Through a series of projects specifically designed to target those agilities, we'll take you on a summer journey that will help you transition from classroom theory to practical business application. You'll be a fully contributing member to your assigned brand team, but you won't go at it alone. Mentorship and performance feedback are critical to your overall success and growth, so you can expect your supervisor and other Purina Family members to coach you along the way. We're very proud of our track record of making full-time offers of employment to our interns and developing them into our future marketing leaders.

We're a global organization known widely as a 'Best Place to Work'. Our culture continuously dares us to Stand Taller and ask "what's next?" Are you up to the dare?
