Pepperland Marketing is seeking a talented, tech-savvy college student or recent graduate to join its growing team as an SEO Intern. This is an incredible opportunity to step into a fast-growing industry and kick off an exciting career in a fun, but challenging work environment.

Think about the last time you made a major purchase. Where did you go to research reviews and options? What about the last time you needed to learn how to fix something? Where did you turn? If you’re like the average American, the answer is probably Google or another search engine. With nearly all decisions involving at least one search, businesses NEED people who understand how to improve their presence and get found for the searches that matter. That’s why Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is one of the most in-demand skills of 2021.

By participating in this internship, you will have the opportunity to learn all of the fundamentals of SEO. You’ll work on real, high-impact projects that will help you develop powerful new skills that jumpstart or accelerate your career. It’s a lot like taking a college course, only instead of having to pay tuition, you get paid to do your homework.

Wondering what it entails? Common tasks/learning opportunities include:

  • Conducting keyword research
  • Completing on-page optimization projects
  • Link building prospecting and outreach
  • Crawl issue analysis and resolution
  • SEO-driven content creation
  • And more

This isn’t your typical internship. Once you have completed the minimum amount of 250 hours, you will become eligible to apply to the Pepperland SEO Apprenticeship. As an apprentice, you will work directly with one of our veteran SEO Strategists, learning advanced skills that can help either land a full-time role at our agency, or work as an SEO Specialists at some of the area's most exciting employers.

Requirements:

  • Currently enrolled as a Junior or Senior college student, or you’ve recently graduated and need to get the skills necessary to land your first full-time job.
  • You’ve taken on some projects to try to learn SEO skills, whether that’s launching your own blog or website, or helping your Uncle’s landscaping business increase its reach for local searches.
  • You have a personality who’s willing to take on anything to learn new skills and succeed.
  • You’re willing to fail, take constructive feedback, adjust your approach, and try again.
  • You’re active on social media and ready to network.
  • You REALLY want to master SEO.

Location:

Our team is currently distributed remotely across the United States. While the vast majority of our work and collaboration is handled remotely, we offer access to a co-working space in Cheshire, Connecticut, USA which is often used for company-wide meetings, team brainstorming sessions, and face-to-face meetings with clients. While you will have the opportunity to complete the internship remotely, we encourage interns to work at least a portion of their time in our Cheshire, CT office. 

Time/Length: Successful completion of the internship requires a minimum of 250 hours over a three to six-month period. Schedules are flexible and can be planned around your class schedule. 

Compensation:

We know you have bills to pay, and believe that the best work comes from those who are compensated fairly. That’s why our interns start at a rate of $15/hour.

College Credit: 

We will work with you to determine if our internship meets your department's criteria for college credit. If you are applying as a college student that requires completion of an unpaid internship, we will allow you to participate for college credit only for the first 150 hours of your internship, or whatever hour threshold your program requires. After that point, we expect you to be available for the remainder of the internship at the normal $15/hr rate.
