Mueller Communications is searching for its next rockstar intern. If you’re reading this post, you’ve just uncovered an amazing opportunity to receive a paid internship in our stunning new home inside the Milwaukee Fortress Building. Even better? You won’t spend your days here organizing files or fetching coffee. You’ll gain real-world design experience to help you accelerate to the next phase of your career.

Mueller Communications is a full-service communications and marketing agency located in Milwaukee. We work across the entire communications spectrum, so whether an organization has good news to promote or a challenging situation to manage, our team of experts can develop a solution to meet their needs. We provide a diverse set of services and have an equally diverse client roster of organizations of all sizes, across all industries — all with a shared connection to or love of our community and our state.

With Mueller, you’ll get the opportunity to work with some of the region’s most influential players, from national healthcare organizations and retailers, to beloved cultural institutions and community organizations — and everything in between. Two days are never the same. We take pride in the great work that we do, but we’re even more proud working in this city knowing we’ve made a real impact. We know you will, too.

You might be wondering: How does this internship work in today’s hybrid world of virtual and in-person work? Like any good creative professional, we ask you to be flexible while always doing what’s best for our team and clients.
