Portland-base creative agency Swift’s launch of Flight School, an internship program giving industry-newcomers real-world experience on big clients in a small agency environment.
The name of the program makes reference to the forward-focused, exciting and upward-moving aspects of flying, a accurate analogy of internship experience.
The program officially launches this summer, and Swift created a microsite that links out from Swift’s page and houses intern info and applications. The program’s Instagram profile also acts as a microsite.
This is Swift’s second mentorship initiative following For The Women, a six-month female-focused program that functions as a personal success plan with women and female-identifying professionals in creative, business and nonprofit fields to help them gain new tactics for overcoming barriers.
Swift’s already has over 200 applications since the website went live last Thursday, February 21.
Swift is currently accepting applications for Art Director, Writer, and Data Science interns.
