The Challenge

Because this is not a traditional internship, the application itself is not traditional.

After the application process, we will select a small group of applicants to compete in a 30-day challenge that will assess your ability, drive and creativity for a chance to become DigitalMarketer’s first-ever Marketer in Residence.

The challenge will consist of three mini-projects and one final video presentation. Each week, you will be tasked with an assignment based on the DigitalMarketer Growth Playbook and will have access to our products and our team to help you.

What is a Marketer In Residence?

As the winner of the 30-day challenge, you will then begin your term as the DM Marketer in Residence, where you will have the opportunity to work with each department within our team (Content, Product, Marketing, Sales, Customer Success, etc.).

Through this program, you will have the opportunity to find your niche and develop skills that will help to shape and further your career goals. You will be expected to work on-site at our headquarters in Austin during your full-time internship in the Summer of 2018.

Based on your successful completion of the summer internship, quality of work, and fall 2018/ spring 2019 availability, you may be extended a project-based opportunity with DigitalMarketer.

This isn’t your typical “internship”. This is a special opportunity to become a professional before you even finish your undergraduate degree. You will be working alongside some of the top experts in the industry, with hands-on 1-on-1 mentorship and education. We will also give you full access to our extensive library of highly sought-after training and educational products, which are produced here at DigitalMarketer by the same team that will be training you.

At the end of your time as the DM Marketer in Residence, you will walk away with:

  • Career opportunities (whether in-house at DigitalMarketer as a full-time employee, or an extensive list of experiences and references to add to your resume)

  • A network of industry connections, including over 300 marketing agencies that are DigitalMarketer Certified Partners

  • A solid grasp of digital marketing basics that will give you a leg-up on your peers, not only in the marketing industry, but in any business or industry in need of agile, forward-thinking do-ers

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Taking a two-week, deep dive into each department which could include…

  • Product Team - Help to produce and maintain our series of products and subscriptions - including content for our community of members, live workshops, webinars and trainings, and our premier event Traffic & Conversion Summit

  • Marketing Team - Develop awareness, leads, and sales for all of DigitalMarketer’s content, products, and events through paid acquisition, SEO, and Email.

  • Content Team - Develop a strategy that engages, entertains, and informs our community through video, editorial, and social media channels.

  • Data & Analytics Team - Collect information from our websites, customers and business tools to find new opportunities and guide decision-making across all departments.

  • Monetization Team - A collective of DigitalMarketer’s customer facing teams, including Customer Success, Certified Partner Success, Sales, and Strategic Partnerships. Discover the DigitalMarketer customer’s journey from the initial sale, to ascension and retaining customers by developing long lasting relationships.

Don’t know what any of this means? That’s okay :) Part of our mission is to teach you about the ins-and-outs of marketing to help you succeed.
