Overview

The World's Greatest Internship was developed to give emerging talent an opportunity to foster real creative growth. Companies are changing how they work, what they do, and the problems they solve. But they haven’t changed the way they cultivate emerging talent. So we created a new model for the modern creative who is part designer, writer, strategist, entrepreneur, inventor, economist, and artist.

The value of the program is in learning about business, culture, leadership, self worth, through the uncertainties that come with travel, confident collaboration, and positive team impact. All the things most schools fail, or are unable, to prepare students for.

We’re looking for creative agencies who share our values and want to prioritize investing in the creative leaders of tomorrow.

Format

A cohort of interns will be divided into pairs. Each pair will spend 2 months at each agency before moving to the next stop. 2 months x 3 agencies = 6 months.

You will host 2 interns for 2 months.

Interns are paid and travel and lodging expenses are covered by the program. Interns will begin their journey with a one week workshop at Factry in Montreal, a school of creative sciences.

The ask

As a partner we ask that you participate in the selection process, create an environment for interns to thrive with the support of your creative leadership teams, and assist with program PR and communication initiatives.

The Process

1. Once the call for submissions has ended you will participate alongside the other WGI partners in a weighted voting process.

2. We use a 3 round weighted voting system over the course of 1 week to carefully select the final candidates

3. Each partner then interviews the final candidates before making final decisions on WGI interns.

The value

You’ll be involved in a disruptive and exciting program and play an integral role in shaping emerging talent of tomorrow. You’ll provide mentorship, be recognized in press and media, be positioned alongside top-tier agency peers, and gain unlimited access to the WGI Talent Network.
