The advertising industry is always in need of people. Metal Factor is keen to attract the brightest talent into the industry. We therefore have gained the collective participation of several agencies in Sri Lanka to provide internships to young aspiring ad men and women.


The program is aimed at students interested in pursuing a career in marketing communications and the related disciplines. Selection is through an interview process with criteria based on educational background, understanding and interest in the industry and the individual's commitment.


Interns will work alongside members of the team from the selected agency and “mirror” actual projects in the agency. Each project will be periodically assessed by their Supervisor. In addition they will also learn about the key aspects of the department and assist the Department teams with day to day ad-hoc functions like brainstorming ideas, writing some copy or even mounting a visual and also doing some routine duties such as sending faxes, maintaining guard books, ect. The duration of an Internship Program may vary from 2 weeks to 3 months on a full-time basis, Monday through Friday, from 9.00 a.m. to 5.30 p.m.


Candidates will face an interview and will be required to take a Personality Test. Successful candidates are required to enroll for the duration of their chosen program. Their participation in training and general attendance will be monitored to ensure successful completion of the internship programme.
