Countdown to a super jacked brain

Velocity internship applications will open in


Velocity is Coming

Want to work with fake clients, creating work no one ever sees? This is not the program for you.

A Velocity Internship means you’ll get training from some of the best in the country at what they do. And the chance to work with real clients. (Trust us, there’s more than enough to go around.) We’d like nothing more than to spend the summer with motivated, curious and adaptable people who are ready to not just learn, but share the workload and occasionally donuts.

Social Media

Are you endlessly intrigued by social media, including how, why and when people use the channels they do? Do you know a little too much about Baby Yoda memes and VSCO girls? Then we want your brain. The MW team is looking for a passionate, curious and inventive intern to help us champion all things social and inspire our teams to connect with consumers in new ways.

Our creatives believe in creating ideas that can. Ideas rooted deeply in human insights. Clutter-breaking ideas, meticulously crafted to light the fuse of conversation and inspire action. Can you create ideas that do that? Are you obsessed with color and composition? Do you dream about using art and design to propel a brand’s voice into the world? Did you name your dog Helvetica? Then, my friend, you may be the candidate for our design internship.

Project Management

Are your friends amazed at your ability to juggle classes, homework and extracurriculars while maintaining a freakishly calm exterior? You might be the perfect project manager intern at MW. You’ll work alongside project managers in all media types to examine possibilities and help bring them to life. Get ready to start defining project goals, scopes, timelines, budgets and answer the question "How do we make that happen?"

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I apply for more than one position in the Velocity program? Yes, but be sure you consider the nuances of each specific application. Q: What positions are available through Velocity? This year the positions are designer, project manager and social media intern. Q: When is the Velocity application due? March 15, 2020. Your application must be received by this deadline. Q: If I get into the Velocity program, will it lead to a full-time gig after it’s over? Our crystal ball is broken. We can’t guarantee employment past the end of the program. That said, we are fortunate to have a pretty great track record of being able to hire directly from the Velocity group, but that is not a guarantee. Q: What are the specific dates of the Velocity program? June 1 to Sept. 25, 2020. Q: Will I get paid? Yep—the Velocity program is a paid internship. 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: Do I need to have an advertising degree or background in order to apply? Not necessarily. There are many different paths that could lead to a job within our industry. Q: What is the difference between project management and account management? Account managers are primarily responsible for the day-to-day running of one or more clients’ business. Project managers manage the process of moving a job through the agency. 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.

Not as Frequently Asked Questions

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. Q: Is a jean jacket part of the uniform? Yes. Q: Is your bowling team best in the league? On Snow Days. Q: Should I expect to gain 20-30 pounds from the constant influx of free donuts? Yes, but it will keep you warm in the cold Minnesota winters.
