Internships in Marketing in the USA
Marketing is one of the most wide-reaching career fields in today’s global economy. Every company, organization, and industry employs PR and marketing professionals in some capacity, so the opportunities are truly endless. That being said, it’s a competitive field, and prior experience is key. Internships in marketing are an excellent opportunity to explore specific subsets within the field, and to develop the key technical skills that will ensure you stand out to future employers.
Here are just a few example roles our Digital Marketing Interns have taken before.
Social Media Marketing
Social media is one of the fastest-growing areas within the marketing field. Most companies have profiles on platforms like LinkedIn and Facebook, but an increasing number are relying heavily on platforms like Instagram and TikTok to reach consumers. As a social media intern you’ll assist with content creation, brand recognition, strategy, and scheduling.
Design is a key element of any marketing team, and graphic design skills are extremely valuable. If you’re proficient in PhotoShop or Illustrator, a graphic design internship is the perfect opportunity to begin developing a portfolio of sample work. Interns design print content such as pamphlets and posters, as well as content for social media and other digital outreach.
Brand marketing is a company’s approach to promoting their product – a strategy that shows what the company represents, and why a consumer should support it. Brand marketing interns gain experience in everything from sales to media communications, and depending on their placement may be part of an established company’s rebranding, a product launch, or a startup’s initial branding strategy.
Writing skills will take you far in the fields of PR and marketing. Digital copywriting interns need excellent attention to detail, and enough flexibility to take on the voice of their host organization. Interns may gain experience writing and editing newsletters, blogs, website copy, and social media content.
The field of marketing is constantly evolving, and almost never looks the same year to year. The top marketing professionals are ready to roll with the punches – whether that means learning to interact with users on a new social media, or helping their clients adjust to changes in search engine algorithms. Marketing strategies and best practices may look different depending on where in the world a target audience is located, which is part of what makes it such a dynamic and diverse career path.
