It’s never been more exciting to be in the experiential marketing industry. Our clients expect the boldest, most innovative ideas that bring their brands to life and deliver on business objectives. What makes this possible is the culture of creativity that is built and fostered at GPJ. We challenge our interns to explore and expand this culture – pushing ahead of trends, contributing strategic ideas, and bringing a fresh perspective to the table.
You will become part of agency culture, and quickly learn what it’s like to work in a professional, fast-paced environment. We will respect your perspective, and encourage you to push further: to take initiative on complex deliverables, to develop problem-solving and multi-tasking skills and to collaborate with numerous departments. All this will contribute to a comprehensive understanding of all that it takes to create immersive, full campaign experiences.
Current Strategy & Planning Intern
"What's different about the GPJ internship versus other organizations is that people trust me. I get more responsibility to learn by doing, and I am a part of the ideas as they're being created."
Former intern now Event Manager
San Carlos, CA
"After my graduation, I was looking for a position that would provide me with hands on experience in the event industry and GPJ delivered just that. I was given real responsibilities and client deliverables. I immediately felt like part of the team and now, five years later, I’m proud to still be a part of this stellar team. It’s a privilege to work beside some of the best in the industry and I could not imagine my career starting any other way."
Former intern now Event Logistics Manager
Auburn Hills, MI
"I started as one of five summer interns out of the GPJ Auburn Hills office and jumped right into creative sessions. When you’re looking for a marketing job straight out of school, you dream of brainstorming ideas and formulating a plan of attack on Day 1, and that’s what it’s like at GPJ. My internship experience gave me a great chance to grow, as a professional and as a person."
Former intern hired by GPJ
"I honestly have loved being an intern at GPJ for the past year and I could not have imagined a better experience. Every day I felt like I was learning something new and getting the chance to contribute to IBM events in both a positive and impactful way. If you are interested in corporate events or marketing in general, I highly recommend this internship and company! I came in eager to learn and not only came out with a wealth of knowledge, but also a great group of friends."
It takes many diverse skill sets to build a live experience for the world’s top brands. We want to expand your understanding and skill set with mentors who are not only experts, but also educators. Throughout the internship, your program coordinator will be there to provide guidance and support throughout your experience. You will meet together weekly to review your milestones and ensure you are getting the most out of your internship experience.
A few institutions we’re proud to partner with:
“GPJ has become the internship of choice among Cal Poly RPTA event planning and management students…[it] has also been a launching pad for the careers of many of our graduates, either as professionals with GPJ or with other event planning and experiential marketing companies. GPJ is truly the model of how a university and business partnership can flourish for the company, students, and an academic program.”
