Typical roles for a Tokyo marketing internship

Here are a few examples of roles that our marketing interns in Japan have taken on before:

  • Social Media Marketing

    Social media is one of the fastest-growing areas within the marketing field. Most companies have profiles on platforms like LinkedIn and Facebook, but an increasing number are relying heavily on platforms like Instagram and TikTok to reach consumers. As a social media intern you’ll assist with content creation, brand recognition, strategy, and scheduling.

  • Graphic Design

    Design is a key element of any marketing team, and graphic design skills are extremely valuable. If you’re proficient in PhotoShop or Illustrator, a graphic design internship is the perfect opportunity to begin developing a portfolio of sample work. Interns design print content such as pamphlets and posters, as well as content for social media and other digital outreach.

  • Brand Marketing

    Brand marketing is a company’s approach to promoting their product – a strategy that shows what the company represents, and why a consumer should support it. Brand marketing interns gain experience in everything from sales to media communications, and depending on their placement may be part of an established company’s rebranding, a product launch, or a startup’s initial branding strategy.

  • Digital Copywriting

    Writing skills will take you far in the fields of PR and marketing. Digital copywriting interns need excellent attention to detail, and enough flexibility to take on the voice of their host organization. Interns may gain experience writing and editing newsletters, blogs, website copy, and social media content.
