Do real work, on real clients — as part of the largest advertising internship program in Los Angeles

We live in a time that calls for big, bold thinking. As an RPA Intern, that’s exactly what you’ll get to do.

That means contributing to real work that really matters. For brands that really matter. At an agency where people matter. Because everything we do at RPA is guided by our People First philosophy.

Putting People First means we couldn’t let the challenges of our moment get in the way of offering students and newcomers to our industry the perfect way to launch their careers. So while the internship is virtual, the opportunity is very real.

To make sure you won’t miss out on important experiences and skill-building, we’ve tailored the internship to include:

  • Critical Ad Skills workshops
  • One-on-one mentorships
  • Executive Office Hours
  • Morning Roundups
  • Helpful reviews and continuous feedback to help you reach the next level

We hope you’re as excited as we are. And we look forward to meeting you!
