Marketing Internship Program
The purpose of this program is to teach junior or senior-level undergraduate students or recently graduated students how to research, write and carry out important pieces of a business’s marketing and communication plan and support the business in its sales development efforts.
The internship lasts one semester. The chosen intern must commit for that period of time. The student is responsible for ensuring that the internship qualifies for academic credits. This internship is 10-15 hours a week. The schedule is flexible but the intern must commit to being in the office at least two days a week. This is an in-office internship at our Round Rock location, no working from home.
In addition to potential academic credits, an intern that successfully completes the program will receive a letter of recommendation from the CEO, a resume remodel before he or she begins a job search, and a certificate of completion. High-performing interns that complete their assigned projects qualify for an end-of-semester bonus stipend. Past interns have been hired for employment or referred for employment in various marketing and communication fields.
