Creative Apprenticeship

Start as a student. Leave a pro (literally).


Let’s make things—and let’s make things happen. TBC’s Creative team is on the lookout for a Creative Apprentice ready to dive headfirst into the fast-paced world of advertising. The ideal candidate already has some experience from school projects, internships, and maybe even freelance work. This Apprentice Program is designed to guide your transformation from an ambitious undergrad to a career-ready creative with a final project consisting of real client work.

This isn’t your typical internship. TBC’s Creative Apprenticeship pairs you with a cross-discipline mentor team to help you hone your craft while exposing you to a variety of creative roles within the agency. Working alongside our team, you’ll learn new ways of thinking and gain the skills you’ll need to succeed in the workforce.

Depending on your area of study, you may:

  • Get called into advertising concepting sessions
  • Be asked to craft the newest world-changing tagline
  • Develop brand assets for TBC’s clients
  • Bring video campaigns to life
  • Design an incredible digital experience
  • Or create a social strategy that goes viral

If you are an artist, designer, coder, strategic thinker or writer who is passionate about the creative industry, want to hone your craft, and are ready to take the next step, we look forward to your application.

Ideal Potential Skill Sets*:

  • Digital marketing
  • Graphic design
  • Copywriting
  • Social media strategy
  • Web UI/UX design
  • Web development
  • Motion graphics/CGI
  • Illustration
  • Photography
  • Videography
  • Advertising
  • Experience designing in Figma
  • Experience with Adobe Creative Suite

*You don’t need to have experience with all of these things. We’ll build on what you already know during the apprenticeship.

Program Details

This apprenticeship is a paid opportunity with flexible work hours (15-20 hours/week) and some remote work flexibility. The Fall 2021 program is scheduled to begin in September and will last approximately 11 weeks.

TBC currently operates on a hybrid schedule, with remote workdays on Mondays and Fridays and regular in-person workdays on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at our office in Brewers Hill. We use Google Workspace, Microsoft Teams, Slack, and Figma to collaborate throughout the day when we aren’t together. Still, there’s nothing like in-person brainstorming sessions, shadowing senior employees, and getting a feel for agency life.

How to Apply

Since we’re looking for an apprentice who’s ready to jump into real client projects, we also want to see what you’ve created—so please share your portfolio in whatever state it’s in so we can check it out!
