We love our interns, but more importantly, interns love us! We look for super rad individuals that bring a fresh perspective and creative ideas to the High Five table. Our company works with your schedule to make sure you’re getting the hours, credit, and experience you need to hone your craft. What are you waiting for? Apply to work with the coolest ad agency around.
WICKED IMPORTANT NOTE: High Five Media will not make you do menial tasks like getting coffee or stupid paperwork. We will, however, probably require you to learn unicycle tricks and/or teach us the “Electric Slide”.
This could be you.
Q – Am I qualified to apply?
We accept interns that are either juniors or seniors in college. While preference is given to interns currently majoring in some form of advertising/media, if you are interested in media and want to learn more, please apply. >>> We occasionally accept high school students to help them gain real-world experience and knowledge before they leave the nest and trek into this cold, hard world. If you find yourself on the younger side of this qualification – just send us an email with your internship needs and we’ll be in contact with you. If you’re a baby (a literal baby), don’t even think about it. The last baby intern was a total jerk.
Q - Is this a paid internship?
Nope, this is an unpaid internship but endless high fives, life-long friendships and a serious snack variety is available. On occasion, we do have paid internships available. If you don’t see them listed on this page – feel free to ask us! For real, ASK US, because maybe we just failed it get it upon the page.
Q - How many hours a week should I plan on working?
Dependent upon the class requirement, most students average between 10-20 hours per week.
The Low Down:
It’s important to talk to your managers and coworkers, so you’ll have regular non-meeting convos to provide guidance and help while you’re here at H5M.
No meaningless errands.
We want to make sure that all of our interns have a place and role within their team, so you won’t find our interns getting coffee or walking dogs. Unless they want to walk dogs.
Team members from every discipline will provide a holistic view of how we work.
Interns at H5M are high valued teammates and right there in-the-paint with us. They provide a point of view that is valuable and integral to making everyone better. Plus, we want to learn what all the young whipper-snappers are learning these days. No old-fogey life for us!
People here are open to sharing their experiences, wisdom and jokes. Jump in some huddles and give us those crazy brainstorming ideas you have. We promise it will help you make the most of your time here. No idea is too bananas.
Getting through life, work, and Walmart self-checkout isn’t always easy. So, these are the people who will help you navigate life at High Five.
Have fun and high five.
Celebrate the wins, learn from the losses, and high five everyone. Ad nauseum.
