Content creation is one of the most important tasks of any marketing team. Interns may gain experience drafting written content for advertisements, press releases, or websites. Internships in marketing in Ireland frequently touch on a wide variety of content creation, including for social media, content for specific products or clients, and branding.
Social Media Management
For many companies and industries, social media is a central part of their marketing strategy. Depending on the organization, interns will interact with a variety of platforms ranging from LinkedIn and Facebook to TikTok, Instagram, and Pinterest. Social media internships also involve creating content and managing publication calendars, as well as tracking and analyzing reach.
Search engine optimization – increasing web traffic from search engines like Google – is an essential task for many marketing experts. Many companies and organizations use their blogs to bring users to their websites when they search for specific keywords. Interns pitch, plan, and write SEO blogs, manage publication calendars, and learn about industry best practices.
Public relations interns learn the ins and outs of managing an organization’s reputation and perception. This includes everything from branding to making sure your company gets mentioned in a roundup of top firms in the industry. Today, most companies have in-house public relations teams, but others work with well-renowned PR agencies.
