FELLOWSHIP (SUMMER INTERNSHIP):
Our Summer Fellowship program runs for 12 weeks with 3 days/week in office. This will provide a meaningful learning and development opportunity for recent graduates (or those who require work experience to graduate), while also allowing us to build into talent, who will hopefully become the future talent of Havas Media. Successful Fellows will have the opportunity to receive a full-time offer from the agency after graduation.
In addition to their department-led assignments, Fellows will learn about the industry, and collaborate on a client-focused project throughout the summer. The program aims to provide Fellows with valuable work experience and opportunities for learning. Soft skills workshops and broad industry knowledge are incorporated into the training to give Fellows an understanding of their role in delivering meaningful media experiences for some of the world’s top brands.
In addition to learning from live, in-person training sessions and real-work experiences, Fellows will build lasting relationships with peers and industry leaders.
