Our pay per click department is experiencing extremely rapid growth and we are looking for a talented Paid Search Intern to join our high caliber team. The role is a great opportunity for a motivated individual who has an interest to be challenged and grow in a fast paced environment. Come work with one of the emerging Thought Leaders in the Paid Media space and gain real world experience across a broad range of industries.

This PPC Intern will assist with the execution of pay per click marketing tactics to achieve client goals in Google, Bing, Yahoo, and Facebook. This individual will work closely with an industry leading team and learn the process for optimizing client accounts in AdWords, Bing Ads, and other paid media platforms.

This role requires an individual who can clearly communicate data trends and account improvement ideas for reporting back to our clients. The candidate should also be analytical and comfortable working with Excel as well as Web and desktop software interfaces to build, organize, and execute changes to large sets of data.

In addition to helping analyze data for our clients, you will help with formulating plans with our sales team for ideal media clients and industries to target.
