Internships

We here at Marketing Zen are excited to be looking for a great group of college students to intern with our company! As one of Inc. Magazine’s Top Entrepreneurial Companies in the 30 Under 30 rankings, as well as one of the 100 Best Companies in the U.S. to be run by a young entrepreneur (two years in a row), an internship at Marketing Zen is a great launching platform for any student with an interest in online marketing.

We love our interns, and we value them and their input – and in return, we give them real-life work experiences and hands-on training. So what do our interns do?

Let’s start with what they don’t do:

  • Fetch coffee
  • Make copies
  • Order our lunches
  • Sit, listen and watch
  • Boring tasks we don’t want to do
  • Not learn

Why? Because we believe that when you agree to an internship, you want to gain necessary skills, grow as a person and in your career, put what you’ve learned in school to the test and be a part of a great organization.

What our interns do:

  • Participate in group chats
  • Brainstorm ideas
  • Put their incredible writing skills to use
  • Actively engage in conversations
  • Volunteer
  • Research
  • Increase their social engagements
  • Learn about new techniques and tools
  • Learn marketing tactics
  • Learn how campaigns work
  • Learn about different social networks and how they benefit different clients
  • Participate in Hangouts
  • Learn a lot (or a little) about SEO
  • Refine their skills
  • Build their portfolio
  • Design graphics for their work
  • Gain a better understanding for the industry
  • Assist in interviews
  • Make their own path

This is just a sampling of all the awesome things we do with our interns. Our internships are very customizable and no intern experience is the same. Every department has lesson plans, weekly meetings and study guides to assist new interns. As you progress throughout the internship, your responsibilities will increase based on your performance. You want to learn it? We will teach it. We want our interns to learn everything they can, so they are prepared for the real world. If an intern is especially awesome and impressive, we have been known to hire them.

Since we work virtually, interns can work from anywhere in the world and have a degree of flexibility traditional internships do not offer. While it is up to each department to decide what hours work best, we have had interns successfully complete our program while traveling through Israel, Mexico, and Italy!
