Social media has changed the way we experience news, education, relationships, and life. It’s also one of the fastest-growing industries. With a BLASTmedia social media internship, discover how to be more than a social media consumer. Instead of sharing blogs, write the blogs that people share. Instead of retweeting, be retweetable. You’ll work closely alongside our social media account executives to find out what tactics work best. Plus, you’ll get hands-on experience managing social media channels for clients.
At BLASTmedia, we’re not successful unless you’re successful. You’ll have on-on-one interactions with our team to make sure that you learn as much as possible about what we do and why we love it. That hands-on, real-world experience will show you the inner and outer workings of agency life, with plenty of exposure to the fast-paced PR and social media strategies we use to generate national media coverage and social influence.
We need one (1) intern to join our social media team this fall, working 15-25 hours per week. The internship is not paid, but you will receive school credit and have flexibility to tailor the internship around your class and work schedules.
