An immersion program for young professionals
How many times did you switch majors in college? If you’re like most of us, you probably changed your mind several times before you found a field of study you were passionate about. Or maybe you still haven’t.
So why risk getting stuck in an agency career track without really having an opportunity find your true passion?
Our Integrate program reimagines what’s possible for the entry-level phase of your career. You’ll be immersed in all facets of an award-winning integrated creative agency. You’ll gain deep relationships with some of the best in the business across a variety of marketing disciplines. And you’ll be more knowledgeable – and more confident about your direction – as you advance in your agency career.
Breaking into a marketing career isn’t easy. That’s why we developed Integrate, an immersion program for young professionals. You’ll gain valuable exposure to everything we do, including strategy, creative, digital, design, social media and more. And you’ll have an opportunity to learn from some of the most seasoned and accomplished professionals in our business.
If you are curious, smart, hardworking and fun, you’ll thrive at Fast Horse. We’ll teach you the skills you need to excel in the modern marketing world, and you’ll forge valuable relationships you’ll carry with you for the rest of your career. That’s really what our Integrate program is about.

What You Can Expect
Through Integrate, you’re exposed to, immersed in and meaningfully contribute to all of the services our agency offers.
The beauty of our system? If you don’t know exactly what you want to do with your career on the first day of your job (or even if you think you do), you’ll learn to be dangerous in all areas of marketing, so you have a comprehensive understanding of how each discipline works in concert to deliver exceptional campaigns.
We want our designers to understand content. Our account people to know event planning. Our analytics team to be exposed to creative. The more you know about all of the facets that make up an integrated agency, the better you’ll be at executing the big ideas that our clients have to come expect – and that truly moves the needle.
These are just a sampling of the disciplines you’ll learn when you choose to Integrate:
Once you’re seasoned in our business, clients and team, you get to choose your specialty. It might be the same thing you came in wanting to do . . . or it might be something you never expected. And even after you’ve chosen, you can change specialties down the road.
Straight from the Source
Don’t take our word for it. Hear what our past and current Associates have to say.
Before joining Fast Horse, I wasn’t sure if agency life was for me. I expected entry-level positions in this field to entail monotonous responsibilities, uninspiring projects and a small, quiet spot in the background. Instead, just a year into my Associate role, I was meaningfully contributing to client work, providing insights on Super Bowl commercials and even flying to New York and Los Angeles to plan and execute celebrity media tours with the likes of Mr. T and Selena Gomez.
– Sam Tuttle, former Associate
Almost two years ago I was in the foothills of Spain teaching English to third-graders. Since then, I’ve executed a winter market with hundreds of attendees, worked on an award-winning cause marketing campaign, and interacted directly with C-level executives.
– Michael Gibson, Associate
I came to Fast Horse with zero education or experience in advertising, marketing and public relations. However, I did have a wild imagination and an open mind. As an Associate, I had a role in planning and creating social content at the EA Sports Madden Bowl for Coke Zero, producing a fashion show for DASANI, executing an experiential event at Charlotte Motor Speedway for Coca-Cola, and editing and publishing a blog for a windows and doors client. (And that was in just the first four months!)

It Starts With An Internship
Most Integrate candidates start with an immersive internship – during which you’ll contribute to real, meaningful work for world-class clients, from the moment you walk through the door. You’ll have a chance to figure out if agency life and Fast Horse are right for you. And we’ll get a chance to do the same.
If everything is hunky dory at the conclusion of your internship, and we think it will be, you’ll have an opportunity to be hired into our Integrate program as an Associate.
Upcoming Integrate Events
We hosted a launch event in October and are planning more events in the coming months. They are a great opportunity for anyone who feels that Integrate would be a perfect fit for them to find their true passion, and to see how Fast Horse is reimagining what is possible for young professionals.
