Backstage Pass Is Back. You Should Apply.

It’s that time of the year again. Summer is quickly approaching. Between barbecues on the patio, waterfront adventures, and weekend camping trips, there’s something about this season that brings us life.

Here at Drake Cooper, summer is more than just baseball games and walks in the park. The office is about to be host to a new group of brilliant, young marketers. That’s right. Backstage Pass is back for 2017! This year, we’ve stepped up the game and we’ve got a host of changes that will challenge you further than ever before.

It’s time to spice up that old résumé and portfolio. This is your chance to experience the marketing world in a way that few ever will.

The 2016 Backstage Pass Intern Group.

Things are about to get real.

If you’ve never heard of the Drake Cooper Backstage Pass, this is how it works. Each summer, a small team of ambitious individuals dives head first into Drake Cooper working behind-the-scenes and gaining first-hand experience in the marketing world.

 As a Backstage Pass-er, you will never be asked to bring us coffee. You will be challenged, complete real work for real clients, work alongside some of the most talented staff in their field, and have a summer that will completely shatter your understanding of marketing and advertising. You will learn the intricacies of every element of our jobs and apply your particular skills and interests exactly where they belong. You will learn what it takes to create award-winning work and help us bring it to life. This isn’t just another internship. This is the Backstage Pass.

This summer, we are bringing on four ambitious individuals to join the Backstage Pass. You could be one of them.
