Ogilvy Summer UX Internship

At Ogilvy Experience Design, we want to thank you for taking the first step in building a partnership with us by sending your students to Immersion Day last fall. We are very pleased to announce the next step: a summer internship program!

We believe that in order to design for everyone, everyone needs to be included in the design process. In that spirit, we will be welcoming two students on a ten-week creative internship.

On top of a weekly curriculum and bi-weekly presentations and panels, students will work side by side with industry professionals, learning about the day-to-day workings of an agency.

We are thrilled to extend the invitation to apply to our summer internship program to Queens College students. Please find more information below.

To apply:

Here are the details:

Digital Activism Lab Media Studies Class

In this seminar/studio hybrid, students are invited to investigate how technology currently both empowers and marginalizes different communities, while also exploring how the possibilities within technology can advance their own activism practices. Projects developed in this class lie at the intersection of physical computing, creative computation, Internet of Things, and web/app development.
Interested undergraduates would be welcome to write to the instructor, Ari Melenciano (arimelenciano@gmail.com) for permission to be enrolled.

Google Design UX Internship

At the top of Google’s core principles is: “Focus on the user and all else will follow.” We believe each Google product should have an intuitive, simple and beautiful design that delights users each time they visit.

Google Design is a cooperative effort led by a group of designers, researchers, writers, and developers at Google. We work across teams to create tools, resources, events, and publications that support and further design and technology both inside and outside of Google.

We’re excited to announce the launch of our User Experience internships. Applications will be accepted from Monday, January 7 through Friday, January 25. You may apply directly through the links provided below. We hope you consider joining our team!

Ogilvy Immersion Day

Ogilvy Immersion Day

Tuesday, October 2nd, RSVP required

Learn what it’s like to work at Ogilvy.

Immersion Day is a half-day event designed to give college students an insider’s look into life at an experience design agency. Students have the opportunity to connect with Ogilvy professionals and network with their peers.

Ogilvy hosts Immersion Day at our Denver and New York office locations every six months, coinciding with spring and fall college graduations. Our team spends half a day with these students, beginning with a tour of our space that leads into a panel discussion. Select Ogilvy employees representing research, design, writing, and creative technology share their personal and professional experiences to provide guidance and answer any questions from these students who are about to begin careers of their own. The remainder of the time is filled with first-hand, informative activities, including shadow hours, portfolio and resume reviews, Workshop 101s, and helpful job interview tips and tricks.

The concept of Immersion Day was born from a plight that designers at Ogilvy had experienced firsthand: it’s difficult to find the job you want without knowing anyone in the industry. Additionally, over the past two years, Ogilvy received frequent requests from Denver design students for studio tours and job shadowing opportunities. There had not been a formal structure or cadence for hosting these students, so we decided to organize and operationalize a process where students could visit Ogilvy, get immersed in our culture and the work we do, check out our space, and receive advice on how to start in the industry.
