Pathways Into Adland

Interns 1

Pathways Into Adland is the recruiting and outreach branch of our OneCE program. We believe it’s important to create pathways into advertising for all individuals who share our passion for creativity. We focus our recruiting efforts on hiring a diverse workforce and we strive to ensure the people we hire represent the demographics and diversity of our country.

  • Creative Internship Program: We created an internship program specifically focused on hiring people of color who may or may not have a portfolio. Our program is built to provide them the experience they need to get a job at any agency.
  • High School and College Outreach: We strive to attract talent based on potential (not just portfolios). Every year, we invite diverse high school and college students to Campbell Ewald to learn about career options in advertising. In 2018, we hosted over 150 students.
  • Have Her Back: If you’re a female creative looking to get back into the business or searching for a new opportunity, we encourage you to get in touch with us at We’ll introduce you to one of our female creative leaders for a networking, mentoring or portfolio review session.
  • Don Gould Scholarship: This annual scholarship is awarded to an advertising student of color attending the College for Creative Studies in Detroit. It provides tuition assistance for their junior and senior year, as well as an internship at Campbell Ewald.
  • Talent Inclusivity Program: We adopted IPG’s program to identify high potential diverse talent from outside the industry. We create relationships with these individuals and key leaders at Campbell Ewald. In 2018, we hired 50% of the candidates from this program.
  • Multicultural Advertising Internship Program: We participate in the 4A’s Multicultural Advertising Internship Program (MAIP), which gives us access to diverse and talented students from across the country.
