Summer Internship Opportunity

Leadership Program Overview

The MADE (Marketing and Advertising Education) internship is a leadership development program for students interested in becoming the future leaders of the marketing and advertising industry. Founded by the ANA Educational Foundation, the MADE internship places you in a summer intern program at one of more than 50 marketing, advertising, or media companies, with participants including MasterCard, IBM, Sephora, McCann, mcgarry bowen, and Ogilvy & Mather. Positioned as the “common app” for summer intern programs, this paid program is designed to provide students with the skills, the mentors, and the training that will help you thrive in the industry. Ad Age recently profiled the MADE program which launched just last year.

If one or more of the following core attributes sound like you, please apply!

Core Attributes

Relentless Explorers and Learners – We are looking for students who are relentless in their pursuit to acquire knowledge and learn more about a wide variety of topics. You might love Shakespeare as much as you love a particular commercial or an Instagram post that went viral.

Creative Storytellers – We want people who can write and speak in a way that captures the imagination of those around you. While the story itself might be fantastic, knowing when and how to communicate it is just as important.

Data Wonks and Jocks – If you dream in decimals and thoroughly enjoyed long division as a kid, you may possess one of the most coveted skills in marketing today: data intelligence. Don’t fret if you’re not a math or science whiz, though. We simply want you to be comfortable using numbers to guide your decision making.

Critical Thinking Problem Solvers – Every day, there is a new business problem to be solved. There is often no textbook when it comes to finding solutions to these problems. We need critical thinkers who can come in and find ways to address problems that the industry has never faced.

ActionOrientated Collaborators– Are you someone who has a point of view? We want those who lean toward action and can follow an instinct, but who also bring people along toward that vision. Working together is just as important as knowing when and how to lead.

An Entrepreneurial Mindset – Do you have new ideas? We want that entrepreneurial spirit in the industry. Because of digital disruption, there are no set rules anymore. We need this entrepreneurial mindset to help us talk to consumers in your generation.

Meaningful Work and Life Experiences – Work experience matters, but so do extracurricular activities that show your leadership potential. What is most important is what you learned from those experiences that allowed you to become a better leader.

Cultural Anthropologists – You love culture whether that be film, art, music, or just people. You observe culture as much as you want to create culture. You have a diverse point of view because you come from a diverse point of view that enhances the thinking of others around you.

Someone with the Basics – We already assume that you know the basics, like being proficient at Microsoft Office.

Who Can Apply

Due to company demand, we are only looking for current juniors and seniors. If you’re not yet into your junior year, we’ll see you soon! For students who already have graduated from college, we unfortunately won’t be able to consider your candidacy.

The Application Process

Applicants can expect to do the following:

    • Submit the Basics – A resume that includes your school, GPA, and other basic information.
    • Academic Recommendation – You’ll need just one one professor recommendation. This is important to get a sense of your intellectual curiosity.
    • Traits Assessment Test – We also want you to take a traits assessment test. It’s not to eliminate anyone from contention. In fact, it’s designed to help you understand your work behavior better and see what fit you have in specific industries.
    • Seven Interview Questions – You will be asked to record yourself and respond to six interview questions, which you will submit to our platform. It’s a chance to see your passion, your emotion, and your thinking on why this industry might be a great fit for you.
    • Final Interview – We hope to interview as many candidates as possible for this program. We would love to do these in person. But realistically, most of them will be done by video. Then, based on this total process, we will start matching you with the host company who might want to do one last conversation before you get accepted to the program.

Placement Rates

This is highly-competitive internship. We expect several hundred applications with only about 40 or 50 host companies to place candidates. We take each application seriously, and we want you to do so as well.

The Summer Internship Experience Itself

You will be part of a structured paid summer program at one of our host companies. You will be assigned a manager and also, in most cases, have a project to work on for the entire summer with a team. The expectation is that each summer program will deliver a meaningful work experience that gives you significant exposure to what skills you need in the marketing and advertising industry to be a future leader.

Preparation for the Summer Experience

For those who do get offers, we plan to provide you with the following:

  • Spring Semester Training – We will gear you up for your summer intern program by providing you with training during the spring semester. We will connect you with industry leaders who will make sure you are briefed on the hottest topics that the industry is facing. We will also will make sure you get the appropriate soft skills training, such as basic presentation skills and running effective meetings, so you are set up for success.
  • Mentorship – You will be assigned a mentor from our AEF network who can serve as a resource for you over the course of the summer and beyond. We want them to be a sounding board for you outside of your structured program for your own personal and professional growth.
  • A Place for Your Impressions– Throughout the process, we will be asking for feedback on your experience in the program.
  • Alumni Group Formation – This process doesn’t end after you finish your internship. It continues on, as we want you to be part of an alumni group that provides feedback to future applicants. We want to see you develop and be successful enough to serve as a future talent ambassador.

Timeline

Submit the full application by Friday, January 18th. We will be interviewing candidates on a rolling basis, so the earlier you apply, the better the chances you will be considered. The full list of MADE interns will be announced in mid to late February with their placements at a host company.

  • The spring semester training will start in early March.
  • During the spring semester, MADE interns will be assigned a mentor.
  • MADE interns will start their summer internship program when the host company starts their program, which typically occurs in June.

Muma College of Business needs interns

                                                                                                                                                             The USF Muma College of Business Dean’s Office is seeking interns for the spring 2019 semester.  With registration around the corner, now is the time to apply as we prefer students earn course credit through the Zimmerman School of Advertising & Mass Communications.

We may be biased, but we think this is one of the best internship experiences for PR, journalism or advertising students.

  • You will be part of a team but you will direct yourself when it comes to your parts of a project.
  • You will get to put skills you have now into play while you learn new ones – such as how to send email blasts, how to pull and decipher metrics used to evaluate PR efforts, and how to implement special events.
  • You will be able to contribute ideas while working on some established projects that prior interns have already launched and made successful (so you don’t have to reinvent the wheel).

 

 

ABOUT THE COMMUNICATIONS INTERNSHIP AT USF MUMA COLLEGE OF BUSINESS

The communications interns work in the USF Muma College of Business Dean’s Office, serving as a regular team member for the 3.5-person staff who handle the business school’s newsletter, special events, marketing, and public relations projects – along with a million other things.

 

Interns typically work a minimum of 10 hours per week (24 hours per week for those seeking three credit hours – which we prefer!).  Work hours vary but are typically during the 8:45 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. time frame, though some projects can be done at the intern’s home, after hours, on the sofa, while watching American Horror Story.

 

Specific projects are assigned once the full internship team has been brought on board each semester.  For the spring semester, our busiest semester, we would ideally have 1-2 marketing students and 1-2 mass communications majors join us.  Because we now have a video wall in the college, it would be terrific to have at least one telecommunications student on the team, too.

 

Some examples of projects that the spring interns handle:

  • Help plan an event featuring a nationally known speaker as we kick off the Thought Leaders Series. Tasks will range from clerical (we all stuff nametags) to bigger picture (how to promote the event on social media to day-of-event tasks (yes, interns will staff the check in table, help set up, and help clean up after the event).  Interns may assist with the creation of supplemental materials (handouts, imagery for event signage, scripting).  All will be done under the supervision of college staff.
  • Create a promotional campaign for the 25 Under 25 program targeting current USF business majors – and implementing the campaign in order to get a minimum of 125 applications. This means interns will make presentations to fraternities and sororities on the weekend, visit larger classes to promote the program, etc.  Interns will create flyers, post banners, send out email blasts – and do whatever other ideas are included on the intern-created promotional plan.
  • Plan and implement the recognition event for the 25 Under 25 program, which is typically held at Busch Gardens. Interns help write the script and completely handle set up and most of the logistics for the special event.
  • Once the 25 honorees for the 25 Under 25 campaign have been selected, write at least seven of the 25 bios for the students and schedule photo shoots, video shoots, etc. Interns help with a social media campaign to garner votes for the “most remarkable” honoree, aiming for 30,000+ pageviews for the profiles (the most important part of the project).  Interns update display cases to showcase the newly selected honorees.  Interns with videography skills may be invited to shoot the videos for the project.
  • Reach out to prior honorees to update the “where are they now” pages and, using InDesign, produce the 25 Under 25 booklets. This means making a LOT of phone calls and sending out lots of emails.
  • We have a video wall in the college now; interns with experience producing videos will have an opportunity to contribute content and help manage the wall. This would be a terrific opportunity for telecommunications students!
  • There are several smaller special events that interns will help with: an open house for the Bulls Business Community to help recruit top performing high schoolers (interns help with the direct mail and email efforts, as well as the actual event).  Other events might include the Intercollegiate Case Competition or graduation receptions.
  • Write at least three stories for the college’s general newsletter and/or the website.
  • Other duties as assigned, likely “one-off” projects where intern will handle HTML email blasts, design/distribute event invitations, help plan Executive Advisory Council meetings, or help proofread scripts and printed collaterals for lots of events.

 

WHAT YOU GET FROM THIS INTERNSHIP

This is an unpaid internship but that doesn’t mean you walk away empty-handed.  We guarantee that our interns leave with valuable new skills that will help them land a job. We work (almost) as hard as the interns to make sure that you have portfolio items and metrics that you can use to showcase how your work impacted project results.

 

Because we are located in the Dean’s Office, students selected for this opportunity have many opportunities to build their network and to meet influential business and community leaders.

 

Other bonuses: attire is (most days) business casual (no jeans, no shorts).  The office is near the Dean’s Office kitchen, where all the leftover food from lunch meetings seems to head – meaning interns frequently enjoy free lunch! Few internships will work around your class schedule more than this one will.  You won’t have to worry about driving downtown or paying for parking because we are located on campus, in BSN 201.

 

 

WHO DO WE WANT AND HOW DO YOU APPLY?

We want interns who like being part of a team.  We prefer interns who are juniors or seniors (but will consider sophomores who are go-getters!).  We like interns who have a sense of humor (but know when it is time to be serious and just get the work done). Our favorite interns have been those who asked for direction on a project and then did it – coming back to ask questions or to clarify things but not waiting to be told exactly what to do and when.

 

We are not micromanagers.  Our office is noisy and is often crowded.  Our “to do” list never ends.  Seriously.  Ask any prior intern.

 

We share this because we believe that our interns should know a few things coming in:

  • If you like a quiet, orderly workspace, this might not be the internship for you.
  • If you always tackle Step A, then Step B, and would never-ever move on to Step C while you are waiting for elements needed to finish the first two parts, then this internship is probably not for you.
  • If you want someone to tell you exactly what to do when you arrive in the morning and to have your tasks for the day all lined up before you arrive, then you probably would not enjoy this opportunity.

 

However, if you relish being able to take big chunks of a project and make it your own, then this this might be the perfect internship for you.  If you like contributing ideas that might make a project more successful (or run more smoothly), then this could be a great fit. If you are comfortable multi-tasking but you know when you have to plow through dreaded chores because the deadline is looming, this could be the internship you dream about landing.  If you like to write (and know that editors make your writing better) then this is the internship for you!

 

To apply:  send a well-written cover letter and résumé to Lorie Briggs, lbriggs@usf.edu.  Résumés submitted without cover letters are rarely considered.

 

Applications will be accepted until December 3 for internships that begin in January.

 

Applying early is to your advantage:  candidates who apply early will be interviewed early (meaning the slots could be full if you wait until December to apply).
