Summer Internship Program

Get your feet wet

A paid summer internship at Publicis Sapient helps you gain real-world experience before entering the workforce. If you make a good impression, it also puts you in an excellent position for securing a full-time job with us after graduation. There’s no better way to test the waters and explore what your future career could hold.

How the summer internship works

You’ll start with a week-long onboarding to get familiar with our brand and tools. Then you'll join a client project with a supervisor who’ll provide mentorship, goal tracking and feedback. You’ll also tackle an “industry challenge project” focused on an actual problem.

 

Make the most of your experience

Join social outings with other interns, and participate in our Lunch & Learn training sessions, where you’ll hear from leaders and get to know colleagues over a weekly lunch provided by the company. You and your fellow interns will also receive a paid day off to participate in a community service project, as every person at Publicis Sapient is entitled to do each year.

 

Who should apply

Candidates who have completed their 2nd year of undergraduate study who are pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in a field relevant to our disciplines are eligible to apply. We seek out motivated, passionate students who are eager to learn, interact and make a meaningful impact.
