Do you have what it takes to cut your teeth at one of the most innovative companies in advertising?

D-Prep is a creative summer residency program at Deutsch. For four weeks in LA and eight weeks in New York, creatives, technologists, designers and other people from diverse backgrounds assemble to tackle client briefs, invent new things and rapidly prototype ideas. The best of the bunch get hired by Deutsch.

This paid residency runs from June 20th to July 15th in LA and June 20th to August 12th in New York. During it, you’ll work closely with some of the industry’s top talent doing work like this. Plus, when you’re not working, you’ll be living in LA or New York, which ain’t bad either.

FAQ’S

How many people will be accepted in each office?

Four in LA, four in New York.

Is housing provided?

Nope. But it’s definitely recommended.

Wait a second. This sounds like an internship.

First off, that’s not a question. Secondly, it’s more than an internship. You won’t be doing busy work or just cranking out comps all night. (OK, you might be asked to help here and there.) D-Prep is a program designed to embed you within the agency where you’ll get to work with top creatives, technologists and strategists to learn and develop your own big, original and shareable ideas. You’ll get a chance to work on our clients, but you’ll also work as a team on separate D-Prep projects.

Do you hire people from the program?

That’s why we do it. We want to find the very best people out there and then steal them all for ourselves.

What if I’m not “in” advertising per se?

Great. A lot of us didn’t come from advertising backgrounds either. We just want people who have great ideas. We build our D-Prep squads from people with diverse backgrounds and complementary skills.

When will I hear whether I was accepted or not?

We’ll try to contact you by May 13th, but please be patient. We had over 300 applicants last year. But hey, maybe we’ll get to you sooner.

Why don’t you ever call me?

Mom, please. This is not the place.
