WE’RE LOOKING FOR YOUR
UNBRIDLED CREATIVITY
THE CAMP OKRP STORY

WHO
We’re looking for a group of creative minds looking to explore the world of advertising—no prior experience necessary. Does thinking outside the box and an unconventional approach to strategy, business or creative development excite you? Good! Keep reading.

WHAT
Camp OKRP 2018 will be a summer's worth of training, coaching and learning about advertising—and making real work on behalf of our agency! Led by Sue Gillan, founder of the SG COLLECTIVE, our “campers” will get real-world ad agency experience—from project briefs and account strategy to creative development and production, you’ll be homing in on your strengths while we get to know you.

WHEN
Monday, June 4th – August 3rd, 9:30am – 4:00 pm.

WHERE
The OKRP headquarters in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood. The corner of Jefferson and Van Buren, at 328 South Jefferson Street, Suite 850.

WHY
Because at OKRP, we are interested in the best talent out there. And that means looking in some non-traditional places (though we love advertising students too!)

HOW
Instead of editing your resume and hunting down letters of recommendation, we want you to showcase your creative prowess in the form of a 2-minute (MAX) video. We aren’t concerned with how you record it (iPhone, DSLR, webcam etc), we’re interested with the message! Submit videos to camp2018@okrp.com no later than February 27, 2018.
