Posted in: Internships & scholarships, Public Relations internships


Padilla NEXTerns, the agency’s summer internship program, offers college students and recent graduates’ opportunities in account service, brand, public relations and creative tracks.

As a Padilla NEXTern, you don’t just gain hands-on experience working with some of the leading minds in our industry, you will help build the framework for the future of our agency. We’re not looking for someone to just fit in. We’re looking for someone who’s interested in creating what’s next.

Padilla has a paid Internship opportunity for a full-time, three-month NEXTern in our digital space to dive in headfirst and get involved with a wide variety of creative client campaigns. This is not a “make copies and mount artwork” type of Internship. This is a dynamic opportunity to use and grow your talent on a variety of business challenges, through compelling creative projects while working with a vibrant, imaginative team.
