A REAL ROLE IN OUR BUSINESS
At VMLY&R, we're all about Creating Connected Brands.
But our desire to create connections doesn't stop there. Our internship program gives talented students, graduates and other professionals from diverse backgrounds a real role in our business.
By combining hands-on experience and our neXus educational sessions, we provide interns with real-life skills and knowledge they need to build a strong foundation and experience success in the advertising industry.
VMLY&R's ten-week internship program begins in June and concludes in August.
Internships are available across the United States. From Kansas City to Detroit to New York, we've got a spot for you!
If you're looking for an internship in another country outside the U.S., please visit that respective country's office page here.
Participating locations will differ year-to-year.
Our interns get to work on actual client work, getting a hands-on role in helping us create connected brands. All the while, they have the support of their supervisors and assigned mentors to guide them along the way.
An important aspect of our internship program is neXus, a series of weekly virtual sessions hosted by key agency leaders and subject matter experts. These sessions will provide you with insights into the inner workings of our agency, as well as topics and trends at the forefront of our industry.
One of the key pillars of our intern program is the intern project. You will be working in groups with other interns across disciplines and offices to work on an actual client deliverable, which you will present at the end of the program.
Public service and giving back to our communities are in our DNA, and it’s no different for our interns. All our interns will participate in a volunteer day and assist local organizations in their given regions.
