The interns are coming! The interns are coming!

Well, as long as they apply in time, that is.

Both Drake Cooper and DaviesMoore are currently accepting applications for their internship programs.

Drake Cooper’s Backstage Pass program is described like this:

The Backstage Pass is one of the largest advertising internships in the Northwest. Hundreds of resumes are submitted each and every year for the most competitive advertising internship in the Northwest, with only four interns being selected to become Drake Cooper-ites for an entire summer. We can teach you art, copy & code. You bring the ambition.

As a Backstage Pass Intern, you will be working with a team to create strategic and creative work for real clients. You’ll get a taste of every aspect of advertising from some of the most talented folks around. You’ll learn a lot about yourself in a short amount of time. You’ll probably go away knowing whether advertising is your thing or if it’s time to join a Father John Misty cover band (it’s certainly the more profitable career choice). You’re going to work your ass off, but we’re confident you’ll have a good time. One thing is certain; our Backstage Pass Internship program will provide you with a line item for your growing resume that will be way stronger than “Agency Barista.”

The application deadline for this program is Friday, April 8th.

DaviesMoore’s Experience 805 program is described as such:

The Experience 805 goal is to provide a few, select interns with marketable skills, constructive feedback, a better understanding of the structure of an agency and an appreciation for what makes working in this industry so rewarding … and a paycheck.

During the 6-week program, each intern will be immersed in daily work, shadowing DM employees and working collaboratively on projects. Choose either the suits or sandals track to learn about the Intern Experience you want.

The application deadline for this program is Sunday, April 16th.

Internship Opportunity: Experience 805 at DaviesMoore

Experience 805, DaviesMoore’s six week internship program, is accepting applications through Friday, May 8th.

During the 6-week program, we’ll split our intern team between two tracks to maximize learning while providing access to multiple departments for a varied experience. Each intern will be immersed in daily work, shadowing DM employees and working collaboratively on projects. Interns will decide between the “Suits” or “Sandals” track and will focus their time accordingly.
