More information about this job



 One agency. 35 years. 100 direct and digital marketing professionals (give or take a few). Since BKV opened in 1981, this Atlanta-based agency has become one of the largest privately owned full-service direct and digital shops in the Southeast, leading innovations in creative, media, digital, database and marketing strategy. The bulk of our billings come from our digital efforts, but we’re also savants when it comes to making our clients’ advertising dollars work in traditional channels. BKV’s client roster includes Aflac, Spanx, AT&T, Dell SecureWorks, Six Flags, American Red Cross and Wounded Warrior Project, as well as many other prestigious for-profit and nonprofit organizations. Check out bkv.com to learn more about what we do, who we are, and how we can work together.




 Spend even a few minutes in our Buckhead office, and you’ll see for yourself: We love what we do. At BKV, we’re aggressive, but we’re not ad-holes. Driven, but not to distraction. We believe in the power of teamwork, and put it to work on everything from our bowling league to our award-winning omni-channel campaigns. Here at BKV, everyone from the president to the summer intern fulfills an active, hands-on role to meet our clients’ goals. With an unrelenting focus on ROI, and a dedication to innovation, BKV has maintained a leadership position in both on and offline channels and is currently one of the 25 Largest U.S. Search Marketing Agencies (Advertising Age, 2014) and Top Work Places(AJC, 2016). We also have flexible WFH days and did we mention that pets are welcome?




 The associate positions at BKV are similar to internships, however, you are paid at a rate of $10/hr and your parking is included. Typically, the position will last up to 2 months and often times there are opportunities to move into full-time positions; although, this is not something we can guarantee. Either way, candidates have found that it is a valuable experience that allows them to learn more about the industry and strengthen their digital marketing skills.
