“Exit interviews with our interns have shown us that they really get a lot of value out of the experience, plus several have landed jobs at Fortune 1000 companies. We’ve also won several internship awards from local colleges.” -Joe Beccalori, CEO
NEW WINDSOR, N.Y. (PRWEB) February 21, 2019
Hudson Valley-based digital marketing agency Interact Marketing has launched their Spring internship program with four exemplary interns from local colleges. Three times a year, Interact Marketing recruits a new class of interns to participate in an immersive, 12-week internship that cultivates knowledge of three facets of digital marketing: search engine optimization, social media strategy, and web design.
With such a rich pool of applicants hailing from educational institutions including Mount Saint Mary, SUNY New Paltz, Marist and Ramapo, the application process is competitive. Applicants undergo several rounds of interviews to ensure their time with the company will be a good match. The internship program consists of an educational component during the first half of the semester to solidify students’ knowledge base of digital marketing, as well as company-wide processes and procedures, followed by hands-on work with oversight by account managers. Interns have access to a library of learning materials, and have the opportunity to get Google certified over the course of their internship.
“Exit interviews with our interns have shown us that they really get a lot of value out of the experience, plus several have landed jobs at Fortune 1000 companies. We’ve also won several internship awards from local colleges,” remarks Interact Marketing CEO, Joe Beccalori. “Our interns are gaining hands-on experience in digital marketing, which can be a gap in academic coursework for those working toward a marketing degree. Some of our interns even choose to apply for a job with the company following their internship.”
In fact, Senior Account Manager, Cody Jackson, began his journey with Interact Marketing as an intern in 2014. On his experience joining the team as an intern and becoming a leader at the company, Cody said, “The internship program at Interact gave me the opportunity to be immersed in a growing digital marketing agency without commuting to New York City. As a college student, that saved me a lot of valuable time and money. In my five years here, I’ve been able to go from learning SEO best practices to instructing a team to drive results for clients.”
Interns from this class were recruited from SUNY New Paltz, a quick thirty-minute drive away. In the Spring and Fall, Interact participates in college career fairs where the majority of interns make their first point of contact with staff. Interact Marketing was proud to be awarded for the internship program, including recognition from Marist College and an award for Valuable Contributions & Continued Support to the Internship Program from SUNY New Paltz.
