I know you know this already, but I’ve heard this a lot that the online marketing internships are a waste of time and money. It seems so obvious. The truth is, most internships are not an efficient use of your time or your money. Some internships, like Facebook marketing internships, don’t allow you to work and you can also be fired.
The first question is simply this: what are you going to work on? Do you work on a product that you think is cool or are you going to work on a product that the company wants you to work on? If you’re going to work on a product that the company wants you to work on, you need to know what you want to do.
This is where that internship comes in. With the internships we have on our website, we pay interns $200 to learn what we do. We provide them with everything they need to know to be a good intern, plus we give them a free copy of a book and they sign a non-disclosure agreement.
Not only does this pay the intern some money, but the book is awesome. It’s a book about marketing and advertising (which I’ve been spending a lot of time learning about lately), and it provides an overview of digital marketing. It also includes the first chapter of the book (I’m currently reading the second one right now), so you won’t be sleeping on your internship.
The internship in question is a part-time internship at CreativeLive, an online publishing company. They are looking to have an intern complete the internship and become a full time employee, which will give them access to the company. The part-time internship is done for three months, during which the intern will learn the ropes of the company and be introduced to a wide variety of online marketing strategies.
CreativeLive has been one of our favorite companies to work for in Google, and their internship is a great opportunity to get into that. It’s also a great opportunity to learn from actual professionals as well as industry leaders, and I’m sure they will let you know if there are any questions about the internship.
Like most internships, it comes down to the actual internships themselves. The three-month part-time internship is a great way to get an idea of where the company is headed and what will be coming down the line. We have already had our interns visit the office to get a feel for how things work and what they’ll be doing.
On the last day of the internship, we had a group of interns meet up with our company and go into our marketing department. The intern asked all of us what we wanted to be when we got out. I think I said that I wanted to be a senior marketing manager. Of course, since I said that, I think a lot of the interns thought I was talking about a better job.
While this internship is only a part-time position, you’ll be doing some great work with your marketing interns. The intern will be doing tasks such as writing and editing marketing proposals, but they’ll also be doing a lot of stuff like answering emails and emails. With a marketing internship you’ll get your work done in the same way you would with a full-time job, but with the bonus of mentoring marketing interns.
If you have an internship you like, you should definitely think about applying for it! If you don’t know what to do with your internship, just apply with a statement of purpose and a great portfolio.
