Have you ever noticed that nearly every entry-level job in the current job market requires you to have plenty of experience before you can apply? That’s because experience is key! While you can learn about digital marketing or writing for the web in a class at college, it’s not until you get out there in the field and put your knowledge to work that you really get a feel for what is really happening in your industry.
Often times, some solid experience at a great company within your industry may even be enough to land you your dream job in the future. Therefore, if you are a college student whose graduation date is starting to inch closer and closer, make sure you have the experience and skills necessary for your upcoming job hunt.
The Zen Media Group, an award-winning digital marketing and PR company based in Dallas, is currently looking for a solid team of college students or recent college graduates to intern with our company this upcoming fall season. Through our various internships, you will be able to gain valuable first-hand knowledge in the world of digital marketing, and even work closely with the leaders of our SEO, content, social media marketing and management departments―all while still in your pajamas! (Did we mention we work from home?)
