I see multiple locations listed on the job I’m interested in. What does that mean?
Please select the location at which you would most like to be based. If selected for the program, you will need to be based out of that location by the time you join the team full time so that you can commute to the office and/or client site when needed.
Are there opportunities to transfer to different cities or countries once hired?
Yes, but this does depend on openings in specific office and whether they support work visas, if necessary. The opportunity to transfer would not likely be available until after you’ve completed the Early Careers Program.
How many rounds of interviews are there? Do I need to prepare anything for the interviews?
Our interview process is designed to give you the opportunity to learn just as much about us as we get to learn about you. We’ve put together this video to step you through the process.
I can no longer make the interview I booked. What should I do?
Please follow up with the recruiter who booked your original interview. You can also reply to the email address provided in your initial interview invite.
Are full-time positions remote or in-person?
Early Career positions, like many positions are Publicis Sapient, are hybrid. This means that you will have flexibility to work from home at times while expected in the office or at the client site at other times, dependent on your projects.
Are internships completed remotely or in person?
All Publicis Sapient internships are completed in person to allow interns to build connections among their cohort as well as with their business teams. Networking and learning opportunities are also built in to this experience.
What benefits do you offer Early Careers full-time hires?
Early Career hires receive full employment benefits with Publicis Sapient. This includes robust health benefits, generous paid time off including vacation and holidays, flexible work/life benefits, and more.
In addition, participation in this three-year development program includes structured training paths, support from our Early Careers team, opportunities for coaching and mentorship, and a clear path to promotion.
Why is the full-time Early Careers Program three years?
We believe that the structure of our program provides Early Career hires the necessary skills and tools to build a strong foundation for their careers. Over the three years, you have the opportunity to work on a variety of projects, shadow colleagues, and build the skills and confidence you’ll value moving forward.
Are there opportunities to transition to a different specialization?
Yes. There have been instances where Early Career hires decide during the program that they would like to transition to another specialty, or what we call capability. Your ability to do so will depend on the skillset you’ve developed and availability within that new capability.
What happens at the end of the three-year program?
Once an Early Career hire completes the program, they become a member of our general full-time talent pool – with three years of experience and a strong foundation to become the future leaders of Publicis Sapient! There will continue to be ongoing opportunities for growth but delivered via general company-wide programs instead of a program focused on early careers.
What happens at the end of a Publicis Sapient internship?
We hope each intern leaves with new skills and experiences that will help them in their future careers. While we cannot offer full-time positions to all of our interns, select interns will be offered a position to join our Early Careers Graduate Program full time starting the following year and their graduation.
What is the work culture like at Publicis Sapient?
