With every graduating class, there is a new pool of talent that enters into the workforce. At Bouvier Kelly, we recognize that new talent breeds innovative thinking and inspiration for the future. We also recognize that breaking into the workforce for the first time has its challenges.
This is especially true for industries like advertising and careers in creative/design. In a sea of sharks, creative/design careers are not for the faint of heart. While larger cities may be bustling with opportunity, it’s less so with smaller cities like Greensboro.
Bouvier Kelly’s commitment to the future and the expansion in the field of advertising in this area is what inspired us to develop a comprehensive apprenticeship program for those seeking to pursue a career in creative services and design.
The Creative Catapult Apprenticeship is a six-month program specifically designed to help shape the next generation of talent into marketable employees who will have a greater chance of being valuable assets to marketing departments and advertising agencies across the industry.
“Creativity is a vital element that can make or break any business. Our mission in developing this program is to assemble a pool of reputable talent by providing a springboard for new talent to develop, network and sharpen their skill sets in a real-world marketing environment,” says Phillip Yeary, Creative Director and Partner at Bouvier Kelly.
While working within real client scenarios, the program will highlight five core areas across digital and traditional media. These elements include development in:
- Marketing Savviness
- Critical Thinking
- Conceptual Problem-solving
- Graphic Design
Each candidate will receive hourly compensation and will work 18 hours per week. We will be accepting one applicant at a time. Interested candidates can email their resume and letter of intent to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will evaluate each candidate on a case-by-case basis.
