Which Arnold offices offer internships?
We offer internships in our Boston and New York offices only.
Are these internships paid, or for course credit only?
All interns are compensated monetarily. You may also receive course credit if your particular program allows. We are happy to provide the necessary documentation.
Do I have to be a current undergraduate student to be eligible for an internship at Arnold?
While the majority of our opportunities are filled with undergrad or graduate students, we encourage recent graduates to apply as well, especially within the Creative and Production disciplines. Traditionally, our Marketing and Strategy internships are reserved for undergrad students.
Do you accept international students?
Yes. We accept international students.
What type of applicants do you look for?
Typically, our interns are currently enrolled in a portfolio, undergrad or graduate program, or have recently graduated. Successful candidates are innovative, creative thinkers, intellectually curious, pro-active and display skill and aptitude within the discipline they have applied for via course study, portfolios, relevant internships and/or full-time experience. All candidates must be passionate about their selected discipline. We also look for candidates that have a point-of-view on their work, as it relates to the work we do.
Will I have the opportunity to work with other departments and disciplines?
Our program is largely interdisciplinary. We encourage our interns to explore interests outside of their immediate department and make connections across the Arnold and Havas network. The experience is what you make of it.
What are other benefits of an internship at Arnold Worldwide?
We truly value our interns, who routinely make significant contributions to our work, our clients and our culture. Many have become Arnold employees. Aside from hourly pay, our interns gain hands-on experience from disciplinary experts and lasting connections as Arnold alumni. Our interns are encouraged to network with and participate in cultural events and intern outings to facilitate networking and collaboration. Arnold provides the opportunity. It’s up to each intern to make the most of his or her experience.
