Start your career with a BrandLab internship

Our summer internship program is designed to give eager and curious classroom students a chance to try out the marketing industry! Eligible are invited to apply and interview for an 8-week internship opportunity at one of our local partner agencies. In 2007, we hired 1 intern from our Spark program. In 2020, we’ll hire 100! Each summer, along with working on-site at a marketing agency or corporation, our interns complete a total of 60 hours of paid training where  industry professionals run training on all aspects of marketing, personal coaches to help unpack the work experience, and staff from our college partners to build hireability skills.
