A BIG BIC Congrats to Jillian Springer BIC ‘25 who’s been chosen to the highly selective Multicultural Advertising Internship Program (MAIP) from the 4A's. MAIP gives students the opportunity to work at major advertising and public relations agencies on various accounts, interact with industry professionals on a day-to-day basis, and gain valuable professional credentials. After the interview phase, Jillian hit the jackpot. She was selected to join as a Design Intern at Pereira O'Dell, an independent creative agency founded by past @BIC lecturer PJ Pereira. Jillian will not only get to work at POD’s New York office on accounts such as IHOP, Zelle, Adobe, and several brands under the General Mills umbrella, but also participate in MAIP professional development workshops, activities, and networking events.

ABOUT MAIP. Launched over 40 years ago, the 4A’s Multicultural Advertising Internship Program is the most established and prestigious internship program in the country. While providing enormous value to its network of paid interns, MAIP also offers advertising agencies the opportunity to access top talent and strengthens the 4A’s efforts to enhance the workforce diversity of our industry. Formal orientation happens in host cities in late May. Internships begin June 1st and continue throughout the summer. Upon completion of the program, fellows become members of the MAIP Alumni Association, a close-knit family of nearly 3,000 MAIP graduates that fosters the development of future MAIP fellows as well as the professional development of the program’s alumni.

Jillian is now a part of this prestigious network which includes BIC alumni Ping Sun, Roxie Xie, Chris Villanueva, Ivan Ramirez, Sean Feol-Baugh, Surabhi Govindarajan, Melissa Julien, Lisandra de la Paz, Amy Perez, and Stella Ramirez

Big BIC Brava Jillian!! We’re so excited to watch your MAIP journey and see where it takes you.
