Chicago Management Consultant Firm Offers Summer Internship

Productive Strategies, a marketing and sales consulting firm in Chicago, seeks a summer intern. The firm works with small, private companies as well as large, publicly held companies – in a wide range of industries. The firm features a small group, about 12 in total, with 3-4 members located in one office in Winnetka/Northfield, Illinois about 15 miles north of downtown Chicago. It is looking for someone to assist in the Winnetka/Northfield office with marketing and sales efforts, as well as to participate in occasional client assignments. The internship offers an opportunity to attend classes that they teach on developing relationship and selling skills (for free). Interns should have good computer and data entry skills. The volume of expected work probably will not require 40 hours a week – but more like 25-30 a week – week to week the workload could vary. Our website ( provides additional background information on what the firm does.

The firm prefers someone from the Chicago area, as it cannot provide housing. It would pay a modest stipend at the end of summer based on the amount worked and contributions made and is very flexible on when someone would start and stop, as well as on time away from work. Finally, Productive Strategies would like to emphasize that its work environment is very low key.

Those interested should contact Terry Franke, Lawrence alum.
