2024 Ogilvy Creative Summer Internship | Copywriter

The Ogilvy Group
United States, New York, New York
January 08, 2024

David Ogilvy famously said, "Raise your sight! Blaze new trails! Compete with the immortals!"

On the creative side, you can apply to be Art Director, Copywriter, Designer or Producer intern.

We're looking for talent who are insatiably curious and observant. Creative problem-solvers and "dot connectors" who love new experiences and sometimes feel like there's never enough time to for all want to see, read, make, and DO!

Ogilvy interns get briefed on real client projects competing with ideas against and collaborating with all levels of our team. They act as our junior level, so need to be ready to jump right in, deliver on their craft and prove themselves!Since it's all real client work, an intern's project load is based on the actual client work flowing through the office during the 10 weeks of the program.

The goal at the end of our program is to offer full-time or freelance, as long the agency finances and workflow make it possible. Historically, we've had a 70% conversion rate. Bottom line, the overall goal is for interns to walk away with real agency and client experience with real work in their books or in their reels.

What We're Looking For: Copywriter

You write a lot. And read a lot! You know good writing. You can think in big conceptual ideas, but also understand the execution, craft, and nuance of the various forms of copywriting. You understand that there are no dead mediums, only bad writing. And at Ogilvy, you could be working on categories from candles to tech to soda to insurance, so your book proves you are up for the challenge of jumping in/out of voices, tones, and targets.

The Fine Print
