In addition to their daily responsibilities, summer interns participate in a training program and a team project and have the opportunity to focus on their development in partnership with the program management team.
The program is offered in the following five locations:

  • Washington, D.C.

Please note: For California, the exact city location will be determined. Options may include San Francisco, Los Angeles or Sacramento.

How to Apply:
To be considered for the program, you must submit the following:
  • Resume
  • Answers to the two prompts (maximum 500 words per prompt)
  • Two letters of reference (educational or professional)

Prompt 1: The 13th-century poet Rumi wrote: "Listen to silence. It has so much to say." In 500 words or less, tell us about a time when you remained silent and how your silence spoke in ways that you did or did not intend.
Prompt 2: The ambition of Ogilvy is bold: to become the best growth platform on the planet. As you step into this important moment of your career, what is your bold ambition? Please share in 500 words or less.
Failure to submit any of these documents will result in your exclusion from consideration from the program.
Please note: You must upload your reference letters in the Candidate Profile section of your application, where it states "Cover Letter/Additional Documents." See the original job posting for more information.
