The Summer Associate Program is a one-of-a-kind 10-week program for recent college grads interested in emerging media. Way more than a behind-the-scenes look at the entertainment biz, the program is an immersive experience that gives you exposure and unparalleled access. Working alongside advisors, you'll have the chance to develop and present a group business proposal to senior execs. If all of that isn't enough, many former Associates have been hired at the end of the program!
Summer Associates will be placed in one of our Tech or Digital focused departments, depending on their smarts, savvy and interests, working with properties like MTV, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, Spike, VH1 and our other mobile, online and gaming initiatives.
