Audiences reach the end of your pages without any effort. You write quality content and rank high in search engines. You excel at research and can deconstruct unfamiliar topics to persuade audiences through the marketing funnel. Gut feeling takes a backseat to structured text. Readers engage with your content and gain value from your words.

  • Or pursuing a Certificate in Creative Writing or Technical Writing
  • A love to write…as demonstrated in a personal blog, novel, or well-written creative class project
  • Curiosity for marketing
  • Basic knowledge of WordPress
  • Alignment with our core values

Your day-to-day activities include a lot of writing and creating content for a wide variety of clients.

Plus, you’re doing it in a startup environment named a Best Place To Work two years in a row, at a company that knows SEO (Google: “digital marketing company.” Markitors typically comes up on the first page of search results, nationwide). You can get a feel for our culture by taking a look at our Instagram account.

In terms of knowledge and experience, this role requires an ability to write about a diverse set of topics. Creativity, curiosity, resilience, patience, and the ability to intelligently research foreign subject matters are a must. The on-boarding process will include a healthy dose of SEO foundations to familiarize you with the world of digital marketing.

Markitors is a great place to grow your knowledge and expertise in a progressive field that is becoming increasingly more complex.

The start and end dates of this internship align with the Spring Semester schedule and are flexible during both Spring and Summer. This is a paid internship with an hourly wage of $12 / hour.
