FOR SUMMER INTERNS IN MEDIA, MARKETING AND ADVERTISING

Each night, interns will have the opportunity to connect with their fellow young professionals over snacks and cocktails while learning insider tips and tricks from more seasoned ad pros to help survive their first years in advertising.

They'll get inspired by industry experts across different disciplines, talents, races, genders, career paths, and more, and will gain a deeper understanding of the ad industry’s business practices and culture. The ultimate reward: the opportunity to have their résumés critiqued by top industry recruiters and HR professionals before they apply for their first job in advertising.
