Horizon’s looking for a few great interns

Horizon is looking for thinkers, doers, dreamers, makers, planners, crafters and risk takers. If you are currently enrolled in an undergraduate program (associates or bachelors) and are interested in a paid, hands-on experience in the media industry, then we'd like to hear from you.​

Our internship program is recognized as the best in the industry. You'll learn about all aspects of our business, and you'll have a great time along the way.​




Media is the business side of advertising. What good is a great ad 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.

How do you know that an agency is happy, healthy, and driving growth in the all the right ways? When you’re recognized year in and year out with awards that honor your incredible culture. We’ve also created an environment where our people are free to invent, explore, share and excel.
