Advertising involves preparing and executing campaign strategies, media plans and advertising development and design. In our advertising internships, interns will have the opportunity to direct and work on an organisation’s advertising and promotional campaigns for print, television, internet and social media. Interns will learn how to build relationships and meet with clients to explain advertising needs and various options available in the agency. Additionally, interns will be tasked with global content writing for company websites, blogs, social media and sales and marketing. An advertising internship will help interns understand media planning, graphic arts and graphic designing.
The role requires knowledge of media planning and campaign development principles including formulation of advertising strategies and selling advertising space or time. Interns will gain perspective on their specific interests in the broad advertising landscape. Advertising internships may also enhance interns’ creative thinking, problem-solving and leadership skills.
