Horizon’s looking for a few great interns

Horizon is looking for thinkers, doers, dreamers and makers. Planners, crafters and risk takers. Regardless of your background or level of experience, if you think you have the right stuff 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.

Applications for 2019 will go live on December 17th, 2018 and the application deadline is January 11th, 2019. 

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. 

Why Horizon?

In 1989, CEO and President Bill Koenigsberg founded Horizon Media with the vision of creating a workplace where Business is Personal. 29 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.
