Factry joins Butchershop internship program
Montreal-based non-profit organization Factry has joined an initiative of San Francisco-based advertising agency Butchershop called the “World’s Greatest Internship.” Through this program, six young professionals in the field of advertising creative will participate in paid internships at six agencies internationally. The participants this year will attend a one-week training program at Factry in August intended to help them develop more creativity.
“I believe that there is a part of education and experience missing in traditional schools where one learns craft skills,” said Trevor Hubbard, CEO and executive creative director at Butchershop. “Being good at one’s craft is important, but there is so much more. The real skills it takes to be in a creative business are around empathy, knowing one’s self-operating system, pitching and selling ideas, showing good thinking, connecting to the business solutions, having a world view on culture and commerce, adaptive problem solving, and short cuts that bring value and build trust.”
