We welcome graduating seniors to apply for our Graduate Training Program based out of our New York office. Given the uncertainties of COVID and the impact on return to (in person) work dates, we are recruiting for virtual positions initially (with the hope of returning to our NYC office!)

This program allows recent college graduates the opportunity to hold a regular full-time position within one of our Public Relations or Advertising agencies. In addition to daily virtual on-the job training, these employees also participate in an extensive in-house training program throughout the first year 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!


The past year has shown the importance of healthcare communications. What we do on a daily basis effects the world around us in a tangible way we can see. We have exciting opportunities that include roles within Account Management, Digital & Social Strategy, Digital Analytics, Research and Analytics, Corporate Communications, Risk and Reputation Managment and Creative strategy and design. Throughout these specialties, you will exposed to innovative teams who work each and every day to: develop strategic go-to-market programs for pharmaceutical and over-the-counter brands; create unique disease awareness initiatives or experiences for patients, advocacy and healthcare providers that effect meaningful change; and inform strategies for how to engage healthcare clients to optimize diversity and inclusion to lead to health equity and access.

Weekly trainings are run by internal and external trainers, exposing Graduate Trainees directly to our business leaders and shapers. Courses include more general topics such as PR 101, business etiquette, writing skills, Pharma 101, research and social media as well as more specific current and relevant presentations.

Relevant work experience/internships and coursework—particularly sciences—is preferred but not required.

It is a testament to the success of this program that the majority of our Graduate Trainees continue on to become long standing and valued members of our organization.

I understand that if I am made an offer of employment, it will be conditioned on my demonstration I am fully vaccinated OR I plan to initiate vaccination by my start date AND be fully vaccinated within 4 weeks of start date against the COVID-19 virus.


IMPORTANT: I understand that if the role for which I am applying requires extensive in-person contact with colleagues, health care providers, clients and other medical professionals who have stringent vaccination requirements that all Syneos Health employees with whom they partner be fully vaccinated and will not accept or consider any exemptions. I understand I can request an exemption from Syneos Health’s vaccination requirement based on a qualifying medical condition or sincerely-held religious belief. However, in the event that I successfully obtain an exemption, I understand that it is highly unlikely that I will be able to adequately perform the essential functions of this position without imposing an undue hardship on Syneos Health due to the clients’ demands.
