Syneos Health

US-NY, Assistant Account Executive Graduate Trainee 3649890-MZ



Do you speak people?"

It s a language many healthcare companies have forgotten - a simple clear way to communicate great ideas that break through because everyone can understand it. No Jargon. No lingo. No catch phrase of the day. We are GSW and speaking people is at the core of everything we do. As one of the world s ten most-awarded healthcare advertising agencies, we think just a bit differently, work just a bit closer and dive just a bit deeper. And because we talk to each other like people, instead of a corporate machine, we come up with great ideas that talk to clients and customers on the most effective level of all the human level.

Speaking people isn t easy. But if you can do it, we need to talk.


Program Overview:

We welcome graduating seniors to apply for our Graduate Training Program in our New York office. This program allows recent college graduates the opportunity to hold a regular full-time position within GSW. In addition to daily on-the job training, these employees also participate in an extensive in-house training program throughout the first nine months of employment. We find that this unique combination empowers our new joiners and gives them a foundation to build their skill sets further and involve them more in our way of life!

Weekly trainings are run by internal and external trainers, exposing Graduate Trainees directly to our business leaders and shapers. Courses include topics such as Advertising 101, business etiquette, writing skills, pitching training, research, social media, and more.

Relevant work experience/internships and coursework particularly marketing, advertising, healthcare communications is preferred.
