Internships are offered to students who have completed their junior year or have at least one semester remaining in their college program. This requirement was established so students could use their 'real world' internship experience when they return to their classroom. Also, at that stage of their education, students are likely to have committed to a career path related to advertising/marketing. Although, students enrolled in schools of journalism are, of course, encouraged to apply, other disciplines are as well: strategic communications; technology; fine arts; business, etc. Interns have the opportunity to develop not only professional hard skills, but soft skills as well, e.g. leadership, team building, presentation skills, etc. Of course, outstanding computer skills are mandatory. They will work both individually on client business under their mentor's supervision and as a group presentining a final intern class project to management.
