Ogilvy Public Relations

Ogilvy Public Relations Chicago is inviting students with an interest in Public Relations or social media to participate in OgilvyU, a full day immersion with our top strategists. Working together with our staff, you’ll learn how Ogilvy PR solves real business problems, and get to know employees from all levels of the company. Held quarterly for seniors and recent graduates, OgilvyU is a hands-on learning experience that brings participants along on the work we do everyday.

  • Up-close look at Ogilvy Chicago’s culture, history and values.
  • One-on-one “Ask-Me-Anything” session with junior staff.

  • Network with likeminded students, and recent hires who’ve been where you are now.
  • Lunch will be provided.


  • Program open to recent graduates and graduating seniors.
