Q. What positions do you have available? A. Click on the Job Listing link on the left side of this page and search our open positions by office or by position. Just don't get caught if you're doing this while working at another agency. Your boss might not understand, but more likely they'll understand all too well.
Q. How do I submit my resume? A. Once you find the position at DDB you've always wanted, click the Apply button at the bottom of the page and upload your resume and contact information. You'll then get confirmation that we've received your resume. No need to hit Submit over and over and over again. If you can't fight the urge, we understand.
Q. How will I know if you've received my resume? A. Again, once you click the Submit button, you'll receive a confirmation that your resume is in our database. Your resume will then reviewed in our top-secret facility located seven miles underground by our special team of talent recruiters. They work in complete darkness because they can smell talent at 50 paces. Of course, with all the resumes we get every day, we can't contact everyone. If we feel you'd be a good fit for one of our positions, we'll get back to you within a few business days.
Q. What's the deal with being "talented and nice"? A. When our agency was being formed, we already had a clear conception of what kind of people we wanted around. We had two simple conditions: our employees had to be talented and they had to be friendly. If you are friendly but have no talent -sorry, we can have a beer together but we don't need you because we're in a business where talent is a sine qua non. Conversely, if you have talent but aren't friendly or respectful of the people around you, still not good enough. Life is too short to be spent with people you don't like.
Q. Do you offer internships? A. Yes. Internships are a great way to learn about advertising and get your foot or other extremities in the door. And most of our offices offer both summer and school year internships, either for or not for credit. But each office has its own way of handling internship programs, so contact the office you want to intern at and submit your resume.
