Today begins our new Intern program here at J. Walter Thompson Melbourne. We have two bright young things with us for 3 months. They will be working closely with the Creative Directors on live briefs for our clients.
Jack and Lochie are both graduates of RMIT here in Melbourne, they have been in contact with us over the past 6 months while we have planned this program and they are our guinea pigs.
It is a program introduced by our Global CCO Matt Eastwood (He's based in NY but came in to see us in Melbourne just last month). It is about nurturing talent into the industry in a way that most agencies only really do with account management, this program is to support and grow young creative talent.
