Empower is ready to train, develop, and inspire the next generation of Digital Media professionals! EmpowerU is a rotational program for young professionals, designed to provide participants with exposure to a wide range of experiences, ongoing mentorship, and targeted training within the fast-paced world of advertising.


After a holistic rotation through 3 of our investment practices, including: digital media, programmatic, search, and social, team members will graduate from the program and be placed within the organization based on their interest, business need, and performance. Throughout each rotation, Associates will have the opportunity to make real contributions to the business while also participating in training and development activities such as live and virtual classroom training, self-study, and developmental project work. 

Associates will work with managers and advisors during their practice rotations to gain a deeper knowledge of each function, the day-to-day operations and interdependencies with other parts of the business.
