Apply to be a part of Marty

Marty is The Martin Agency’s exclusive beta-trial-for-working-here-program.

We hire future creatives, account folk, strategists, designers and content creators to get real experience on real clients with real feedback so they can maybe even produce real work, all because we really want to want to hire you. That’s not a typo. At the end of this thing, our goal is to be so impressed that we make you a job offer.

In fact, this very program has been the jump-off point for some of the most talented talent currently working at The Martin Agency.

Student Workshop

Every year, college students from around the country descend on our Richmond headquarters for a 10-day crash course in all things Martin and advertising. And it's just like real advertising.

Just like real advertising, students make ads. The teams will break into small groups to conceptualize, create and present a marketing campaign, from brief to execution. The students will then present to agency executives for a chance to win cash and prizes!*

Just like real advertising, students attend meetings in meeting rooms. In those rooms, agency management across all disciplines will lead seminars about their specific disciplines, the creative process and the industry as a whole.

Just like real advertising, students work long hours, have access to free snacks and can wear whatever they want. There was a memo once about tube tops. Wear tube tops at your own risk.

*"Cash and prizes" limited to bragging rights, the inner satisfaction of a job-well-done, possibly a certificate, probably some extra slices of pizza.
