Why media?

Good question! Those that have entered this field come from various backgrounds, but at least one thing they have in common is their passion for media. They love that media is the intersection of strategy, technology, analytics, innovation and creativity.

Okay, but what IS media?

Media is the business side of advertising. What good is a great campaign if the right people don’t see or experience it? We media enthusiasts ensure that the brands we work with connect with the right people, at the right time, in the right place.

Why Horizon?

In 1989, CEO and President Bill Koenigsberg founded Horizon Media with the vision of creating a workplace where Business is Personal. 28 years later, the agency continues to grow without sacrificing that original vision; Horizon is a place full of great ideas and talented people.

Business is Personal defines how we do what we do. We strive to hire top human beings, not just top talent. We want individuals who contribute, share and bring their entire self into our culture.

In addition to your daily work within your department, interns participate in an intern class project which gives you the opportunity to create a media plan for a real Horizon client and is also an avenue to bond with your fellow interns.
