2017 Internship Positions:
Account Manager: We are looking for a stellar creative and strategic thinker who is open to considering all media spaces. You should also be someone who is able to communicate easily and clearly with a variety of different types of people, as you’ll be expected to interact with clients, as well as all departments within the agency.
Media: If striving for excellence and connecting with audiences in a unique and memorable way sounds like your thing, join MW as a media intern. We work tirelessly every day to fulfill our mission of brand activism by inviting and inspiring participation through media strategy, planning, buying and marketing analytics that keep campaigns engaging via smart optimizations.
Writer: We like words. A lot. And we like writers who can arrange them in an unusual order to make people feel something. Or laugh. Or think differently. We’re looking for a writer who can not only write, but who wants to come up with big ideas. Visual ideas. Inventive digital ideas. But mostly, contagious ideas.
Digital Production Artist: We are looking for someone to fill a role that combines a strong technical aptitude, with a keen eye for design elements. You will work in the Studio department, alongside a larger team, learning to build production-ready files and presentations.
Applying for an internship:
Each application involves sending a cover letter, resume completing position-specific task, and supplying work samples. Applications must be emailed or postmarked by March 31, 2017. More information on the internships and how to apply can be found on the velocity website:
