Are you really good at getting coffee for people? Great. Grab some for yourself and get to work. Our interns aren’t glorified personal assistants, they’re members of the team.
Ultimately, we’re looking for creative minds who can think conceptually. You’ll be charged with coming up with new ideas, every day. Then – depending on where your particular strengths lie – we’ll center your internship around copy or design work. You’ll work on actual clients with actual account teams, and learn how an actual agency works. You’ll be supervised by our Creative Directors. You will not be asked to do any heavy lifting, unless the shuffleboard table needs a readjustment. But more than anything, you’ll learn how great creative work is done – and practice doing it yourself.
Here’s your first lesson: people love bullet points.
- Paid internship for the fall 2011 semester
- Must be a junior or senior
- 15-20 hours/week
If you’re looking for an agency where CD’s intimidate you out of a career in advertising by throwing your book out the window, then look elsewhere. We’re far too busy for that. We’d rather just work with you to create better work than berate you. We take what we do seriously, but we prefer to teach and encourage you. It’s like The Apprentice, if it were hosted by Danny Tanner.
What are we looking for from an intern? You tell us. Why do you want to work here? What are you bringing to the table? What do you want to get out of this? Why do you like advertising? Do you like advertising? All those things. Tell us what you think we need to know. And hey, it’s a creative internship. So… you know… do creative stuff.
