Consider everything you know about advertising. Now forget everything you know about advertising. At Translation, we approach things differently – bending norms and shifting the status quo. We launch music festivals for beer brands, create sneaker lines for insurance companies, and restore love for a national sports league with just a 30-second commercial spot. Does this sound exciting to you? If so, refer to the application below.

Translation’s summer internship program starts on June 5 and ends on August 4, 2017. We’re looking for Creative, Account Management, Brand Strategy, Social + Context Strategy, Project Management, Production, and Music Services interns. Our clients include Apple Music, NBA, NFL, DSW, and State Farm…just to name a few.  The last day to apply for our 2017 internship is April 14. 

Come change the game alongside some of the best in the business.

2. Why do you want to intern at Translation? (100 words)
1. At Translation, our “majors” are the roles we perform at work every day, but our “minors” are what drive us outside of work. It’s not a hobby – it’s a passion. Your area of cultural expertise. The thing you would pursue if money weren't an issue. We’ve got DJs, photographers, chefs, interior designers, botanists, and historians. We want to know what you’re passionate about. Explain in the space below or email as a PDF to Name your file LastnameFirstname_3.1.2017.pdf (e.g. - StouteSteve_3.1.2017.pdf).
2. Show us what you’d do with one of these celebrities’ personal brands and explain why it makes sense. Anything is fair game – from product innovation and events, to apps, brand repositioning, and more – we want you to get creative. Choose one celebrity and email your response as a .pdf to Name your file LastnameFirstname_3.2.2017.pdf (e.g. - StouteSteve_3.2.2017.pdf).


Q: How long is this internship?

A: It lasts two months. But getting twelve rounds of brutal feedback from your Creative Director? That lasts a lifetime.

Q: Will housing & transportation be provided?

A: Housing is not provided. But hey, this is a full-time (40 hrs/week), paid internship and you also get a monthly MetroCard. Oh, and also unlimited rides on the Staten Island Ferry. So, worth it?

Q: What is the summer going to be like?


Q: How is it working in Times Square?

A: We’re not gonna lie. It’s weird out there. But where else could you find the Naked Cowboy and Batman getting lunch together at Bubba Gump Shrimp Company?

Q: I'm a senior in college. Will I get a job out of this?

A: In the words of Founder + CEO Steve Stoute, "Everyone wants a six–pack, but no one wants to do the crunches." Do with that what you will.  And also, this.

Q: Is it lit?
