Functional Description:

PepsiCo's Marketing internship program is a 10 week summer program between June and August held in each of our three U.S. headquarter locations: Chicago, IL (Quaker Foods, Tropicana, Gatorade), Purchase, NY (Pepsi Beverages) and Plano, TX (Frito Lay). A summer internship in Marketing at PepsiCo is an opportunity to independently solve a critical business problem. Each intern is presented with a timely question for their team, and challenged to both think strategically and engage cross-functional partners to provide a provocative and comprehensive recommendation during their final presentation. This structure mirrors the project-based work process of full-time employees. Although this process lends itself to great autonomy in setting agenda, workflow and output, interns have full support, guidance and feedback from their managers and the broader Marketing organization. As a class, PepsiCo Marketing interns are availed of best-in-class exposure to senior leadership, educated on the global PepsiCo organization, and given opportunities to build relationship with fellow interns across both functions and US PepsiCo headquarters (New York, Dallas and Chicago).

What you can expect:

A Marketing intern at PepsiCo will provide marketing and analytical support to senior managers regarding the development of various marketing initiatives and assist PepsiCo in achieving their short and long-term business strategy. Interns support projects including new product launches, consumer promotions, and graphics development. The position requires significant interaction with various marketing agencies and partners to help bring the brand strategy to life. In addition to the creative side, this position requires a highly quantitative skill set and comfort with analyzing data to develop detailed and thought provoking strategic analyses and recommendations. To accomplish this, the intern will be required to use a number of databases and scanner data systems.

What we're looking for:

At PepsiCo, we look for creative, results oriented people who will thrive in a fast-paced innovative marketing environment. Our marketing professionals need both strong analytical skills and keen marketing instincts. We are looking for risk takers who can create consumer-based ideas and bring them to market quickly and positively impact profitability. Ultimately, PepsiCo is looking for high energy people who will be passionate about marketing and building our business and have a desire to take on significant accountability. We welcome diversity of thought and backgrounds.
