Nope! We are looking for all kinds of majors. There is no preference given to the type of degree you have whether that be marketing, advertising, anthropology, or engineering. All are welcome to apply!
Only current juniors (graduating in 2020) and seniors (graduating in 2019) are being considered for this program.
We will typically send you a link to take the online assessment test within 24 hours during the business week, Monday through Friday. If you submitted your resume on a Wednesday morning, you should get that link on Thursday morning. If you submit it on a Friday afternoon, you should get the link by Monday morning. The reason why the link is not generated automatically is because the software we are using has built in safeguards where we are making sure that there is a real person continuing to progress the candidate.
First, please check your spam folder. It often ends up in that folder. If you have not gotten your link yet within 72 business hours (three business days), please contact Elliot Lum at firstname.lastname@example.org for further help.
Unfortunately, we won’t be able to accept anything additional once you submit your application. Please review the application carefully before you submit it!
The MADE program cannot accept any creative portfolios as part of the application process. We are looking for future leaders in the marketing and advertising industry and evaluate all candidates according to the same criteria.
At the very end of the application process – after you completed the onlne assessment test and the digital interview – you will be asked to submit that recommendation through a unique link provided to you. This allows us to tag your recommendation to your application file. In the meantime, please use this form to share with a professor to fill out.
All recommendations must be submitted by Thursday, January 31st.
We strongly prefer that you submit an academic recommendation. This is a chance for us to hear from a professor about your critical thinking and analytical reasoning skills. These are skills that are strong predictors of your success as a future leader in marketing and advertising.
We will only look at one recommendation so please submit what you feel represents you the best.
You can complete it at any point before Thursday, January 31st, which is the deadline for the application period. You do not have to complete it the same day that you receive the interview request.

A complete application is your initial submission form with your resume, an academic recommendation, the online assessment test, and the digital interview. All have to be completed before the stated deadline.
If you have filled out the application with your resume, completed the online assessment test, conducted the digital interview, and submitted your academic recommendation before the stated deadline, you have given us everything we need. Unfortunately, we cannot check on candidate’s individual profiles and don’t have a self-service interface for you to check.
Unfortunately, once you submit your application, we are unable to give you access to change it. Our system can’t accommodate this self-service functionality.
We are evaluating candidates as we receive completed submissions during normal business hours, Monday through Friday. A MADE committee comprising of different executives from the AEF and Association of National Advertisers meets regularly to discuss every candidate who applies.
We will be starting to conduct live interviews in mid January 2019 through mid February. We will be reaching out to schedule these conversations before then to make sure it is a convenient time for you and for us. We will be conducting all live interviews during normal business hours, Monday through Friday. Thanks for your patience.
Senior executives from the AEF and Association of National Advertisers will be conducting the interviews.
We will supply a link to a digital interview platform called ConveyIQ to conduct the discussion. The interview will last between 30-45 minutes.
Just like any job interview, this is no different. Prepare like you would any normal job interview.
We are evaluating applications as quickly as we can so that we can make sure to review each candidate thoroughly and fairly. Based on the committee’s feedback, we will be in touch.
We will be conducting virtual training sessions getting you prepared for your summer internship. These trainings will focus on both soft skills as well as the latest in what is happening in the industry. You can be anywhere in the country (or the world for that matter) to access these training sessions.
All MADE internships are paid. However, we do not provide housing arrangements or additional funding for living/relocation expenses.
Most of the companies in the MADE program start their internship programs in June and end in August. They last anywhere from eight to ten weeks with 30 to 40 hour work weeks. All of the internship programs are paid.
Yes, you can still apply for the MADE program. For those selected, you will be receiving training in the spring to best prepare you for the summer internship experience. Those trainings will be recorded for you to review on your own time if time zone differences make it challenging to dial in at the scheduled time.
Yes, international students can apply but only if they have a visa to work in the United States.
