Internships at MCD

Internship program

Nothing beats real-world experience

At MCD, we're dedicated to providing interns and cooperative education (co-op) students with the building blocks to jumpstart or advance their career journeys. Joining MCD, you'll be part of a dynamic team of digital experts working to meet complex client needs, all while gaining practical, paid work experience to build your portfolio and expand your professional training.


MCD's internship program is an opportunity for college students or post-graduate adults to gain career-related work experience. Our internships are paid, full-time positions that span 12 weeks or longer. See all our current openings.


A co-op is a type of required internship where college students gain paid, full-time work experience to fulfill their educational curriculum. Depending on your individual course of study, the length of your co-op can range anywhere from one summer to two semesters + two summers. See our Rochester Co-op Program page.

What you'll get to do

Whether you're passionate about web design, technology, user experience or copy, we have some great opportunities for you.

Both interns and co-op students will be assigned a senior-level manager who will work with you daily, be accessible for questions and help you develop your specific skill set. In addition to being responsible for your own project deliverables, you'll attend cross-functional internal working sessions, client reviews and presentations.

No matter your career path, MCD internships and co-ops offer a wealth of learning opportunites from some of the very best and brightest in the industry.
