2018 Internship Program FAQs


Can I receive school credit from my internship with Love Advertising?

Yes! We are more than happy to work with your academic institution to complete any necessary paperwork required for you to receive school credit.

Is the internship paid?

While the Love internship is unpaid, interns gain valuable contacts and insight into life at an advertising agency, as well as walk away with great portfolio pieces.

When does the Love internship start and end?

If selected to be an intern at Love Advertising, your first day will be May 29th. The internship will end on August 3rd, which means 10 weeks of fun, real-world experience at an advertising agency.

What will I be doing as an intern?

We don’t use interns to brew coffee, fetch lunch and make copies. Our internship program has three components to help ensure you get a well-rounded experience that will benefit you throughout your career:

  1. Education - The goal of an internship is to learn, so the Love internship committee has worked hard to secure field trips to vendors’ offices, agency partners, printers, and TV and radio stations to help you get a better understanding of what it takes to make the magic happen.
  2. Mentorship - Each intern is assigned a mentor within the agency to answer any questions, provide guidance and help you meet the goals of your internship. These relationships can even continue after the internship as you enter into your career.
  3. Integrated Project - Each intern class is assigned a group project that is completely led by the interns. The project consists of real client work and culminates with a client presentation. This component of the internship program helps provide interns with real-world assignments, client interaction, presentation experience and portfolio pieces.

Does an internship lead to job opportunities at Love Advertising?

While we can’t guarantee a full-time job offer at the end of the internship, there is definitely potential! Many of the current Love employees started out as interns. In fact, Love has hired interns from our past four summer intern classes and past interns are the first people we look to when filling entry-level positions.

Is a cover letter optional?

No. At the end of the day, advertising is all about communication so we use your resume and especially your cover letter to help us evaluate your communication skills.

Should I include relevant social media links in my resume?

Yes, we encourage you to include social media links with your application. Social media is a big part of what we do at Love so feel free to show off any social media experience, even if it’s personal.

How many interns do you hire?

While we receive hundreds of applications, we choose 6-7 interns to participate in the Love Advertising Summer 2018 Internship Program.

What are the hours of the internship?

Interns have the same hours as our employees to help get the most out of the internship experience. Love hours are Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. with a 1-hour lunch. We pride ourselves on an excellent culture so if you have a doctor’s appointment or another important matter, we try to work with you as much as possible.

How should I send my portfolio?

You can include a link on your resume or cover letter. There’s also a portfolio field on the internship application form.
