Speaking of interning for iconic brands (a favorite statement of consumer package goods marketing folks), you couldn't get more iconic than Coca-Cola. This is a company who's 125 year history started when pharmacist, Dr. John Pemberton, carried a jug of Coca-Cola® syrup to Jacobs’ Pharmacy in downtown Atlanta, where it was mixed with carbonated water and sold for five cents a glass. Even Coca-Cola's first bottle has been entered into the records of marketing brilliance, as the bottler wanted to make sure you could recognize you were drinking authentic Coca-Cola even in the dark, distributing the beverage in a curvy shaped of the glass.
The Coca-Cola Company has grown from selling a modest 9 drinks a day in 1886 to 1.7 billion a day. Their products are available in more than 200 countries. They've grown beyond the original Coca-Cola and now market more than 500 brands beyond Coca-Cola.
Here's what Coca-Cola says about their internships.
