ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR SUMMER 2022

Why:
Our job is to tell diverse and dynamic stories. To do that well, you need people from all backgrounds. Simply put, Pittsburgh hasn’t done a good enough job welcoming and retaining Black communicators. This is our effort to change that. The Big IDEA Internship.


Who, Where, When:
Oyster Creative Co. will host this year’s summer internship program for Black people interested in careers in marketing, advertising and related communications fields.

This paid internship will take place for 12 weeks during the summer of 2022, and will be held in Pittsburgh — with opportunities for remote/virtual work.

 

What:
Our goal remains the same. To create a more diverse communications industry in Pittsburgh by providing opportunities for Black people to gain valuable work experience and connections
in the field.

We know that different voices and ideas make our industry stronger. And that’s The Big IDEA.
