There’s a reason we call it velocity.

MARTIN WILLIAMS INTERNSHIP

Velocity

It’s the way the advertising industry moves and evolves. Speed, quickness and agility are required in all phases of the business, and we’re not just talking about the day-to-day pressures.

Sure, you’ll get training from some of the best minds in the country. But they’ve also got a lot of real work to do, and they need motivated and adaptable people like you to get in, get dirty and help them do it.

If you’ve got the need for speed, the Velocity Internship will help you harness that energy to build a smarter action-hero version of you. And by the end, you’ll be locked and loaded to launch yourself into a new career.

But before you make it here, you have to show us what you’ve got. Apply today. Click your area of interest to find out exactly what we need to evaluate your skills and see if you have the Velocity in you.

March 31, 2017. Your application must be received or postmarked by this deadline.
Q: If I get into the Velocity program, will it lead to a full-time gig after it’s over?

June 5 to Sept. 22, 2017.

Q: Do I really need to be done with school to be considered for the Velocity program?
Yes, you do. The Velocity program is specifically geared for those who are finished with school.
Q: How many people will get interviews for the Velocity positions?
It sort of depends. We will go through the applications and narrow them down to those we think could be wonderful in the Velocity program. That could mean we’d be seeing as few as a couple, or as many as eight or nine, for each position.
Q: Did I hear you recently moved the office?
Yes! We love our new space and hope you come and see it at one of our two workshop events. In case GOOGLE Maps sends you astray, the correct address is 150 S. Fifth St., Suite 900, Minneapolis, MN 55402.
Q: Is it OK to be a Velocity team member and own a pet at the same time?
We think so, yes. Please just remember to feed them.
