The Black Sheep Externship

The Black Sheep is a small marketing firm that uses physical and digital marketing efforts to
connect our clients to college students at universities across the United States.

Location: 180 N. LaSalle, Chicago, IL. We’re office optional, with only a small amount of people in the office for any given time.

Externship Mentor: Brendan Bonham (History and English, ’08), Chief Operations Officer


It really depends on the role we have them shadowing in. They can help our contractor team identify
new hires, our marketing teams execute campaigns, sales working with our clients, etc. I’d also like
to spend some time with the people visiting to get feedback on what maybe upcoming trends in the
college space.

Public transportation? Yes, we are in the Chicago Loop, so all main El lines, busses easily get downtown, as well.

Parking? Yes, there is a paid parking garage adjacent to our building, as well as street parking.

Wheelchair accessible? Yes, though the ADA restroom is on a separate floor.
