Do you want to work in Advertising? The MADE Internship Application for Summer 2022 is now open

From the MADE Website

“Launched in 2018, the MADE (Marketing & Advertising Education) Program has placed over 180 students in paid summer internships at top companies and has connected hundreds more students to the advertising & marketing industry through the MADE Online platform.

The MADE Program was developed in response to findings uncovered in the AEF study “Bridging the Talent Disconnect: Charting Pathways to Future Growth“. There was a resounding call across key stakeholders – students, academia, and industry – on the need for a robust internship experience as a critical step to future employment.

However, securing an internship is often a reflection of who a student knows, instead of who a student is, putting many at a disadvantage. The MADE Program is designed to level that playing field and enable students of all backgrounds to gain valuable industry experience, regardless of their school, major or industry connections.

MADE functions as the “Common App” of marketing & advertising internships. A MADE candidate is matched with potentially dozens of internship opportunities at our partner companies based on traits such as critical thinking and leadership potential.

Through this process, MADE exposes bright students to opportunities they may not have been aware of or thought they had access to. Organizations benefit from being able to select top talent from a pool that spans racial, ethnic, geographic, and socioeconomic groups, breaking down traditional barriers to finding diverse talent and resulting in a more representative industry.

MADE is not just a summer internship program – we are cultivating a diverse community of marketing and advertising industry leaders through year-round virtual events, case competitions & resources.”

Student application opens on: September 15, 2021
Application deadline: January 15, 2022
