Summer Fall Spring

Duties of Intern:
The RIGGS summer internship provides a full-time, real-world working experience for those pursuing careers in Copywriting, Art Direction, Media and Account Planning. Interns will take on projects and complete tasks as if they were entry-level employees. Likewise, they will be treated, compensated and held accountable as such.

Skills Required for Internship:
RIGGS is looking for inquisitive, outgoing, career-minded students who know exactly what they want to do and can’t wait to start doing it. In the case of Art Directors, we’re seeking those with a working knowledge of InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator. All applicants must submit a resume and cover letter outlining their specific discipline of interest, as well as a portfolio of relevant work, documenting proficiency in that discipline. Candidates meeting the requirements will then be asked to perform a test specific to the area of interest they are applying for. Candidates will then be narrowed down and interviewed as to determine who will be granted the internship(s). Portfolios can be submitted electronically or by mail. No phone calls please.
