I don’t live in Chicago. Can I apply?


Yes! We have two office locations, Chicago and Southwest Florida. Internships are available in both areas. Work options are negotiable for those concerned about their candidacy due to distance.

I don’t have a background in the preferred fields. Can I still apply?


Yes! If you have a talent for writing, editing, design, PR, or marketing, don’t hesitate to apply! We consider each applicant on a case-by-case basis given the needs and requirements of the company at the time of employment.

What is your process for evaluating candidates?


We evaluate candidates as we receive completed submissions during normal business hours, Monday to Friday. An evaluation committee includes OneIMS executives and heads of corresponding departments. Candidates that we are interested will receive an invitation for an interview and will know the result of their application by the end of the review process, if not sooner.
