Knocking on Opportunity’s Door: The Perks of Bagging a Marketing Internship This Summer

Summer: the season of sun, fun, and … internships? While your friends are going on once-in-a-lifetime trips and lounging by the pool, you’ll be turning up the heat on your career instead.

We get it, internships don’t sound like the most fun thing you could be doing this summer. But what if we told you an internship could earn you more in one summer than a yearly salary? Enter the world of marketing internships—your golden ticket to the big leagues.

What Kind of Marketing Internships Are Out There?

When it comes to marketing internships, the opportunities are endless. From social media to door-to-door sales to content creation and market research, there’s something for everyone in the world of marketing. Here are the most pivotal marketing practices to know:

  • Digital Marketing: SEO, social media, blog writing—the digital world is constantly evolving and companies need interns to help them stay ahead of the game.
  • Email Marketing: Instead of spamming, learn the art of persuasive writing that makes people click ‘open’ rather than ‘delete’.
  • Affiliate Marketing: Where you learn to be the middleman that doesn’t annoy anyone because you’re just that slick.
  • Direct-to-Door (D2D): Old school? More like gold school. Face-to-face marketing, because emojis can’t replace human emotion. Yet.

Why Spend Your Summer This Way?

Now, why would you want to swap beach time for office time? Hear us out:

  • Real-World Skills Over Textbook Theories: Forget what you’ve been spoon-fed in lectures. Marketing internships throw you into the deep end—where theory meets the street. You’ll learn to handle real projects, deadlines, and, yes, even office politics. It’s the kind of schooling you just can’t get in school.
  • Networking: Rub elbows with industry bigwigs and make connections that can catapult your career from intern to CEO faster than you can say “LinkedIn endorsement.” These aren’t just colleagues; they’re your future job offers and references.
  • The Payoff: Not all internships come with a hefty paycheck but the ones that do can be pretty sweet. Take door-to-door sales (D2D) for example. The average team member at Grit Marketing makes $31,665 as a rookie during the summer. And get this—it only goes up from there as your experience does.
  • Flexing Your Creative Muscles: Marketing internships are all about innovation, persuasion, and standing out in a crowd. You’ll be brainstorming campaigns, creating viral content, and coming up with strategies that can make or break a company’s success. It’s your chance to show your future employers that you’re not just another cog in the machine.
  • A Test Drive for Your Career: Not sure if marketing is what you want to do? An internship is like taking a car for a spin before you buy it. You’ll get a real taste of the industry, and hey, if it turns out you’d rather build cars than market them, at least you’ll know before you’ve wasted any more time.
