The 2017 Backstage Pass Internship is back for another summer tour.
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.”
WE KNOW THAT AN EDUCATION IS GREAT, BUT EVEN THE MOST DIE-HARD ROADIE NEEDS A LITTLE GRUB MONEY. THE FOLLOWING ARE THE PERKS AND BENEFITS THAT YOU CAN EXPECT BY BEING A PART OF THE BACKSTAGE PASs.
Each Monday night, a DC employee hosts a workshop that teaches a facet of advertising and digital marketing. You'll learn media, analytics, development, video, and everything in between.
Every other week, a brief will be assigned to the group. You'll get to work on a variety of client projects that will challenge you to push your skills to new heights and come up with a solution so brilliant, you'll be smiling in your sleep.
After you've had two weeks to work on the brief and refine your presentation, you'll get the opportunity to pitch to the agency. We will ask you tough questions, provide helpful feedback, and if it's good enough, help bring your team's idea to life.
