Want to take part in an award-winning internship program? You’ve come to the right place. When Internship King released its list of the top US advertising internships, the Y&R Austin program made it. And there’s a reason why.
At Y&R Austin, we think that internships should be like the “lab” part of a class. They’re the place where you put into practice what you’re taking notes about all day. Surgeons don’t perform surgery after only reading about it for six years! We won’t treat you like “just an intern,” we’ll treat you like a person and challenge you to grow because you ARE an intern … and our interns are great people! Heck, for all we know, maybe it’s someone who looks, thinks and acts just like you.
As an intern at Y&R Austin, you’ll work side-by-side with a mentor in Account Service, Media or Art Direction. You will learn by doing as you help them on real projects for real clients with real deadlines. And if that’s not enough, you’ll be invited to attend internal and external meetings and be required to attend weekly seminars that will teach you how an agency functions. So, if you’re looking to improve your faxing, filing and photocopying skills, this may not be the place for you. But if you want to truly learn about advertising from the inside out, we’re currently accepting resumes.
The fine print: The fall and spring internship programs run approximately 15 weeks each and interns will work 12 hours per week for a total of 180 hours in order to receive a completion and/or class credit for the internship. The summer internship program usually runs 10 weeks and interns will work 18 hours per week for a total of 180 hours in order to receive a completion and/or class credit for the summer internship. Positions available in Account Service, Media and Art Direction. Submit your stuff—let’s see what you got!
The deadline to apply for Summer 2017 internships is May 5th.
Junior/Senior standing preferred.
To apply for a position within our intern program, please send the following to Austin.email@example.com
- A cover letter in the body of an email, NOT as an attachment! What you should attach is your resume. And if you do so as a PDF, you get automatic brownie points!
- An indication of which department you are most interested in. If you don’t tell us which department you want to work in, we’ll assume you want to shred paper for a semester.
- A link to your portfolio. If, for some reason, you must attach your portfolio, please do so in the form of a single PDF that is no larger than 5MB.
