Potential

We're Iris

We're for the forward.

Iris is a diverse, thriving, creative innovation network of over 1000 people in 14 offices, working with many of the most progressive and successful businesses in the world.

Amidst the agency landscape, we've always been the bold challenger, a collective of restless, off-the-wall thinkers, squarely aimed in one direction: forward.

This means recognizing a need for transformation, working with clients who are up for the challenge, and inspiring the people who will make it all happen.

Potential is a Fancy Word for Iris' Internship Program

Iris Potential was built to help entry-level creatives, strategists, and account service people put their best foot forward and then sashay their way straight into the advertising industry with the grace and elegance reminiscent of the Kool-Aid man. Join our ranks to challenge what's been done, think so far outside the box it's just a tiny square, and push the advertising realm into a brave new world, one real client brief at a time.

Welcome to the real world.

You're Gonna Love It

As part of Potential, you'll be tackling actual problems for actual clients and finding answers to questions they haven't even thought to ask yet. Along the way, Iris staffers will share their wisdom, and you'll get a shot at making sure they remember your name after your ten weeks is up.

It's a lot of hard work. But the kind of hard work that's really its own reward. Because isn't driving culture upward and onward with the power of your own two hands and creative mind a win in itself? Yeah, don't worry you'll also get paid.

Excited? Good. Tingly? Maybe get that checked out. This is gonna get weird, fast. But after ten weeks at Iris you'll be smarter, tougher, and ready to take on the world…of advertising.
