RPA is seeking talented interns to join the Launch Internship Program for the Spring Semester.

At RPA we believe an internship should be more than a resume filler, it should be a place to set the course of your career. Our Launch Internships embody this very sentiment. You’ll get to experience firsthand the bold, creative, and collaborative culture that’s made RPA one of AdAge’s "Best Places to Work.” You get to do real work on real brands, as part of the largest advertising internship program in Los Angeles.

We’re not like other agencies. We believe we can only do our biggest thinking and create our most inspiring work when we put People First. Which means valuing and empowering our people to do their best, and inspiring them to create ideas and experiences that respect people.

If you’re ready to work with awesome people in a place where people are encouraged to swing big, act bold, and be their most awesome selves, we want to meet you. Because we’re nothing without our people, and everything because of you.
