The Raquel Zarin Summer Internship Program

The Ad Council is hosting a paid, 10-week, remote, summer internship program from June - August with placements across various departments. We’re looking for summer interns from around the country who will bring diverse backgrounds, skills and perspectives to the Ad Council. Over the course of the internship, our interns will gain applicable work experience, contribute to real, client-facing projects, develop solid time management skills and learn how to maintain a healthy work/life balance.
Our internship program is in honor of Raquel Zarin, a beloved employee, mentor and friend at the Ad Council. Raquel passed away in 2021 but left behind a legacy of grace, courage, hard work and great fun that we strive to emulate. She nurtured young talent, championed DEI, fought for immigration rights and was passionate about the importance of health equity. These are all principles that we hold in high esteem, and values that we want our future interns to establish during their time with us and beyond.

Thank you for your interest in the Raquel Zarin Summer Internship Program. Applications for 2024 are now closed. Please check back in early 2025 when we will be opening new roles for our next cohort of change-makers to join us in the summer.

For those who have applied, our teams are beginning to review all candidates and interviews are slated to kick off in April. We aim to have our summer interns selected by the beginning of May.

Don't hesitate to reach out to if you have any questions.

Be sure to follow Ad Council (@adcouncil) to stay up-to-date on our latest work and career opportunities.

We look forward to connecting with you!


We come from varied backgrounds and perspectives, but we all have one thing in common: a passion for social change.
