Our team of Brand Energists have harnessed experience from every element of branding and marketing on both the agency and client sides, in B2B and B2C environments, and at local, regional, national and international levels.

All brands have energy. Understanding, harnessing and effectively transmitting that energy is paramount to brands building strong, lasting and profitable relationships with their customers. That’s what we do at Trone Brand Energy.

While parts of the TV portrayals of our industry can ring true, we are dedicated to helping newcomers to the world of advertising and marketing get a real taste of the business. That’s why we created experimental grounds for fledgling Brand Energists. If you are or can be located in the Greensboro/High Point/Winston-Salem area and you meet all the appropriate student criteria, we would love for you to apply for an inTRONEship with us.

Apply now to learn more about brand energy and The Firefly Effect™.

An inTRONEship is an internship energized by the power of Trone Brand Energy. It is not a boring, let me check my email every 2.3 minutes type of internship. It's a hands-on, in-the-thick-of-it, learn-by-doing immersion experience created to provide you authentic educational opportunities and help you harness your talents and passions within the industry. That's why we've designed our inTRONEship to include check points and mentors.

And don’t forget, we are in the business of ideas. If our interns have ideas on things they’d like to learn or ways we could improve their experience at Trone Brand Energy, we listen.
