Magazine’s Top Entrepreneurial Companies in the 30 Under 30 rankings, as well as one of the 100 Best Companies in the U.S. to be run by a young entrepreneur (two years in a row), an internship at The Marketing Zen Group is a great launching platform for any student with a interest in online marketing!
Each of our internships give students valuable first-hand knowledge in all areas of digital marketing, and will allow them to work closely with the leaders of our SEO, content, social media marketing and management departments for a hands-on learning experience. Plus, you can do all of this while still in your pajamas! (Did we mention we are a virtual company?)
