Launch your future by submitting your information to our recruiting team today, or check our campus schedule to see if our team will be visiting your school this fall.

Your foundation for success

The Early Careers Program is our one-of-a-kind, ongoing career development program for recently graduated hires. The first few months focus on in-depth training and onboarding support so that you’re set up to thrive here. That way, you’ll be ready to do what you came for—start making a real impact on real projects.

From there, we’ll nurture your career progression through your first few years and help you reach your professional goals as your partner and ally. At other companies, recently graduated talent can get overlooked or slip through the cracks, but we make sure to keep you—and your aspirations—on our radar.


Get oriented at Jump Start

Most of you will travel to one of our offices to attend Jump Start, our immersive orientation, alongside other student hires from the US and Canada. At Jump Start, you’ll be resourced with everything you need to know to make your mark at Publicis Sapient.

  • Get the full rundown of our company, brand, purpose and core values.
  • Practice soft skills such as effective communication, time management and self-advocacy.
  • Complete field-specific training, plus a crash course in Digital Business Transformation.
  • Take part in a Q&A session with a panel of recent student hires.
  • Engage in a one-on-one about your skills and interests to gauge the type of projects you’d enjoy.
  • Set career goals and learn how to make them happen.


Join a team and begin your career journey

Return to your home office and get up to speed on your future clients. To ensure you’re not thrown into the deep end, you’ll learn the ins and outs firsthand from senior team members. Then it’s time to dig in and assume a significant role on the first of many client engagements. As you take on more responsibilities and acquire additional skills, the Early Careers Team will be on hand to usher you through the next few projects and help you further or reshape your goals.

Hear from our recently graduated hires
“There are always new projects, new clients, new people all the time, plus opportunities to travel. So with all of that, you’re never bored, and as a developer, you don’t want to be working on the same thing every day.”
Rosalee Hacker
Rosalee Hacker, Associate Engineer, Boston
“During the orientation, they talked about long-term goals. Coming out of college, you don’t have that sort of experience, so it’s a really good thing to have people who are willing to help you get to where you want to be.”

Summer Internship Program

Get your feet wet

A paid summer internship at Publicis Sapient helps you gain real-world experience before entering the workforce. If you make a good impression, it also puts you in an excellent position for securing a full-time job with us after graduation. There’s no better way to test the waters and explore what your future career could hold.

How the summer internship works

You’ll start with a week-long onboarding to get familiar with our brand and tools. Then you'll join a client project with a supervisor who’ll provide mentorship, goal tracking and feedback. You’ll also tackle an “industry challenge project” focused on an actual problem.


Make the most of your experience

Join social outings with other interns, and participate in our Lunch & Learn training sessions, where you’ll hear from leaders and get to know colleagues over a weekly lunch provided by the company. You and your fellow interns will also receive a paid day off to participate in a community service project, as every person at Publicis Sapient is entitled to do each year.


Who should apply

Rising seniors who are pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in a field relevant to our disciplines are eligible to apply. We seek out motivated, passionate students who are eager to learn, interact and make a meaningful impact.

Interns turned team members
“I got to work on a real team, so I learned what QA was like, what project management was like. By seeing how an agile setting fits together, it was easier to see where I wanted to fit into the organizational setup.”
Mark Abramov
Mark Abramov, Associate Engineer, New York
“I wasn’t expecting to get as close to the team as I did…we really bonded. It never really felt like we were interns. It was like we belonged there, which was probably the best part.”
