Gemic is a global human-centric strategy and innovation consultancy helping some of the largest global companies solve their most difficult strategy challenges. Companies usually come to us when they need help “designing for discontinuity” and re-imagining their role in contexts that are multiplying in number and complexity. We develop strategies with the power to shape industry and society.
WHO WE ARE
Gemic is a global growth strategy firm with offices in Berlin, New York, and Toronto. We help some of the largest global companies solve their most difficult growth strategy challenges. As business-minded creative strategists, we are grounded by the methods of the social sciences and design, inspired by the humanities, and reinforced by the analytical rigor of strategy consulting. We are anthropologists, philosophers, designers, economists, sociologists, political scientists, and futurists.
We hail from more than 10 countries, speak 14 languages, and always work in small teams that carry a project from inception, through research and strategy, into design-led solutions. More than anything, though, we care deeply about what the future will look like, feel like, and mean.
We know that in order to reimagine the future, the present must be unapologetically fun, healthy, and interesting. So, in addition to having some of the sharpest minds and personalities around, we offer our strategists a strong commitment to work-life balance through generous paid time off for vacations, creativity, and volunteer work, employer-paid benefits, and a vibrant company culture.
THE GEMIC INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
Our internships are a bit non-traditional in that we treat the opportunity as a springboard to potential full-time employment for people with 0-2 years professional experience (think direct entry to entry level). Because of this, we look for people who, if hired, could start immediately or soon after this engagement ends and therefore have little to no schooling left to complete and up-to-date, typically permanent work authorization.
You’ll be based out of one of our offices for a three- to four-month paid engagement and expected to hit the ground running as a key member of a project team. In addition to taking part in different project phases (including potentially traveling for fieldwork and client meetings), you’ll have a senior team member as your mentor to support your development.
Please note, unfortunately, we are not able to sponsor visas or work permits, which is why you must be legally authorized to work in the country to which you are applying.
We are looking to place interns for Summer 2022 with possible start dates any time between July through September 2022. The start dates for the internships are flexible and hence we will tailor the specific timing, duration, and location separately with each successful applicant.
You’ll be offered monthly compensation - Berlin: €2,100 (EUR); New York: $3,600 (USD); Toronto: $3,700 (CAD). We expect this engagement to occur in person, not remote, however we continue to monitor situations in all countries to ensure the health and safety of our staff.
WHAT WE LOOK FOR
We are looking for exceptionally creative, intellectually curious, brave, and humble humans who have a demonstrated interest in business, culture, and a love for solving big challenges.
We are open to candidates from diverse backgrounds, with major bonus points for having an inquisitive, global mindset. Our most desired qualifications include:
Final year student, recent graduate, or young professional (0-2 years professional experience)
Quantitative and analytical skills
Know, love, and have strong opinions of the social sciences, business strategy, humanities, and design
Culturally competent and linguistically talented
Easily distracted by intellectually exciting ideas
Phenomenal at storytelling

Curious, abstract, and strategic thinker
Willingness to learn and be an active part in personal and professional development
