Matter

Internships & Apprenticeships

Your Path to a Rewarding Career

At Deksia, an important part of our mission is training young talent to be successful in the advertising, design, and marketing industries. We take the commitments we make to our interns and apprentices seriously, believing that real-world work experience is in most cases more valuable than academic training alone.

What is the difference between an internship and an apprenticeship? How do they work and how do you apply? Keep reading below and discover if this path is right for you.

Apprenticeship

Launch Your Career

In nearly every case, our apprentices have completed their internship at Deksia, distinguished themselves, and shown the ability to make strong contributions in an area of need.

Apprenticeships are full-time paid positions and structured to give you hands-on-training with progressively expanding responsibility for the eight months of employment with us. Regular reviews keep you on track and as your apprenticeship ends, you either receive an offer of full-time, permanent employment with us or our help in finding your next position.

  • Full-time, 40-hours per week
  • Paid
  • Four months at Apprenticeship I, four months at Apprenticeship II

Internship

Real Experience, Real Work

Internships at Deksia provide a fast-paced introduction to what life is like in a nimble marketing agency. You will gain exposure to real clients, learn the ropes, apply your skills, and receive hands-on mentorship from experienced professionals.

While the work and the experience are real, we take seriously the part that we’re able to play in our interns’ education and development. We take pride in the frequent comments from interns that they learned more in three months at Deksia than they did in four years of college.

  • Part-time, 20-hours per week
  • Unpaid
  • Three months

"DEKSIA's internship program exceeded all of my expectations- I didn't think I'd be able to do so much hands on work with real client projects. I was given great constructive feedback the entire time, too."

"Starting out, I wasn't sure what my career goals were. I just knew I wanted to do something with advertising. My internship with DEKSIA helped me find my passion for SEO and showed me how to pursue a career in that field."

"DEKSIA gave me a good idea on how an agency works. Both their client base and branding process are unique - I wouldn't have this sort of exposure anywhere else."

"I tried not to give myself a lot of expectations, but DEKSIA impressed me right away. Account Management isn't a role I was familiar with before, but now my eyes are open and I know this is a role I would enjoy. "
