RequirementsInternship experience is challenging, diverse, enjoyable and intense
This is not a "filing" internship, a mindless resume-builder or an exercise in coffee runs. This is a challenging job, throwing you right into the mix on several of the company's most critical and high-pressure functions. The day-to-day job, in a nutshell:
- The internship, like the entire company, has its core in customer service. You will be trained to join a team which is renowned for service performed at an unheard-of level. You will speak to customers over the phone and *thrill* them in a high-energy, fast-paced team environment. You may be asked to help with email and online Live Chat support as well.
- Every single day, you will also work on critical additional projects for the business. These projects vary enormously, and you'll likely be able to work on at least a few of them over the course of your internship. These projects involve things like: market research, sales-geared business analysis, SEO, client outreaches, website mockups, culture initiatives and much more.
- You and your teammates will be multi-tasking, working hard, and doing whatever it takes to get the job done that day. You'll find that in between tons of hard work, there will be still be time for an ongoing, fun banter with a group of people who you'll quickly consider true friends.
The internship is an incredible career-launcher
Here at Zerve, we always look to promote from within. Our full-time team is filled with former interns at every level. And for professionals who do a great job at Zerve and then move on, we serve as an incredible reference and help in any way possible.

- Former interns no longer Zerving went on to star for organizations such as Google, Spotify, Zynga, Boeing, JPMorgan Chase, OppenheimerFunds, UBS Wealth, the Manhattan District Attorney's office, and countless others. They are also entrepreneurs, teachers, Peace Corps volunteers and so much more. We're in touch with many and proud of every one of them!
