On the creative side, you can apply to be Art Director, Copywriter
or Design intern. We're looking for talent who are insatiably
curious and observant. Creative problem-solvers and "dot

there's never enough time for all they want to see, read, make, and
Ogilvy creative interns get briefed on real client projects with
the opportunity to compete and/or collaborate with all levels of
our creative team including ACDs, CDs, possibly even ECDs. Since

The intention at the end of our program is to offer full-time or
freelance, as long the agency finances and workflow make it
possible. Historically, we've had as high as a 70% conversion rate.
Bottom line: -the overall goal is for interns to walk away with
real client experience and work in their books.
What We're Looking For
Calling all ' Big Idea' thinkers! Talent who can come up with
conceptual ideas and can translate a simple concept into a variety
of mediums and channels. Great collaborators who know how to
partner well with a copywriter and if necessary, can help direct a
team of specialists (designers/animators, directors, wardrobe,
location/props, etc) to convey a vision. You know how to be scrappy
too, if needed - you are a 'Maker' and 'Do-er". Ogilvy sets the bar
high for taste level and craft, so we expect quality from anyone
who wants to join the team.

The deadline for applications is January 31, 2023 at 5:00pm PST.
