VB&P - General

VBP Academy 2021 - Internship

What we’re looking for:

We are honest with our clients. With each other. Even when it’s awkward and especially when it’s hard. We are clear. About where we want to go and what it will take to get there. About what we expect from our people and our clients. About what they can expect from us. We are transparent. About where we’re progressing. About our success. And especially about our failures and how we learn from them to do better.

People who are fearless in pushing limits and trying new things in pursuit of ideas that cut through the noise. We are passionate about creativity, and believe it is our weapon to move brands and businesses forward. Those who are excitable and proactive about solving client’s problems.

We know that putting people first gets better results. We believe that diversity and creativity are inextricably intertwined: the best work, the best culture are co-created by people with diverse skill sets, perspectives and experiences. People who are inclusive, supportive and motivating. 

The Academy Class of 2021 will be a 100% remote internship over the course of 9 weeks. We are actively monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic conditions in the Bay Area and throughout the United States. Should an opportunity arise where we can invite you to the office, we would love to meet you in person! That said, the health and safety of our employees comes first. VB+P has been operating remotely for almost a year and our teams are well equipped and eager to welcome you on board remotely.
