What Advertising Design Interns learn:
The most valuable skill interns learn is how to receive and interpret client direction and apply it to their own work. The Advertising Design Department functions much like an ad agency, so interns will create real ads for real clients and learn how to build cohesive, effective ad campaigns that translate across both print and digital. Projects created during the internship can be used to build a strong professional portfolio. Advertising Design interns learn the ins and outs of pre-press production, as well as how to utilize a CRM (Customer Relationship Management) system.

To apply, submit your resume, cover letter and portfolio or samples of work.
