Publicis Media has announced its second 2018 winter Internship Program to seek out exceptional talent from a range of universities and faculties in Sydney and Melbourne, following the success of its inaugural program earlier this year.

Intern candidates will again be selected based on a diverse skill set including science, technology, business, psychology and mathematical backgrounds and the program is open to all universities.

Publicis Media and its agencies, including Starcom, Blue 449, Zenith, Spark Foundry and Performics, will share 25 interns in total, with 10 based in Melbourne and 15 in Sydney.

Publicis Media people and programs director, Alex Delehunt, said: “Following the success of the first Publicis Media Internship Program, we are very excited to open applications for our winter intake. We were really impressed with the calibre of our interns and we’ve already hired four in permanent roles. The growth of the internship program is future proofing Publicis Media, growing our capabilities, especially with talent from a variety of backgrounds and degrees.”

Internship entries are now open via Linkedin and close on 31st May.  Applicants will need to submit a YouTube video and CV answering one of two questions: “Are you a strategic thinker or a number cruncher? Or maybe both?” and “What has been your favourite ad and why?”

Only current university students can apply and shortlisted students will receive an invitation to Publicis Media’s “Insights Day” where they will hear from each agency about media life, hear from past interns about their tips and tricks and also respond to a real media brief and present their responses back at the end of the day.

Successful interns will be placed in a team for four weeks full time or six weeks part time, attending weekly “grow” sessions with agency leaders and craft specialists. They will also have access to  Publicis Media’s full training program, including the Programmatic Certification.

Commenting on the first intake, one of the interns said: “From when I was first accepted into this program to now, I have learnt an incredible amount about the industry and met and worked alongside many wonderful people. This internship has not only been an opportunity to develop both my functional and technical skills, but has also given me a glimpse into the transition from uni student to the workforce first hand; to adjust to the people, opportunity and responsibility of a new role – and to claim this was merely intimidating is an understatement.”
