Publicis Media has announced its second 2018 winter Internship Program to seek out talent from universities in Sydney and Melbourne, following the success of its inaugural program earlier this year.
Intern candidates will again be selected based on a diverse skill set including science, technology, business, psychology and mathematical backgrounds. The program is open to students from all universities.
Publicis Media and its agencies, including Starcom, Blue 449, Zenith, Spark Foundry and Performics, will share 25 interns in total. Ten will be based in Melbourne and 15 in Sydney.
Publicis media people and programs director Alex Delehunt said: “Following the success of the first Publicis Media Internship Program, we are very excited to open applications for our winter intake. We were really impressed with the calibre of our interns and we’ve already hired four in permanent roles. The growth of the internship program is future proofing Publicis Media, growing our capabilities, especially with talent from a variety of backgrounds and degrees.”
Applicants will need to submit a YouTube video and CV answering one of two questions: “Are you a strategic thinker or a number cruncher? Or maybe both?” or “What has been your favourite ad and why?”
Only current university students can apply and those shortlisted will receive an invitation to Publicis Media’s Insights Day, where they will hear from each agency about media life, and past interns will talk about their tips and tricks. Participants will also respond to a real media brief and present their responses back at the end of the day.
Successful interns will be placed in a team for four weeks full-time or six weeks part-time, attending weekly Grow sessions with agency leaders and craft specialists. They will also have access to Publicis Media’s full training program, including the Programmatic Certification.
