An international internship jumps off the page of any marketing and advertising résumé, and for good reason.
Experience in a different market means exposure to new audiences, consumer behaviour, ad formats, and of course another product and industry. All of which leads to a more innovative, creative, and practical graduate.
This is a chance to see and work with a new set of cultural, political, and socioeconomic factors that affect reaching audiences. You will test your social, written, and verbal skills while developing your marketing instincts and learning from the industry professionals around you.
Your placement will be in a small- or medium-sized company in Ireland, putting you in the front row for strategy formation, execution, and results of every marketing initiative. You may be working on traditional, above-the-line or below-the-line channels, in digital and social media, or across them all in public relations.
Tasks could include audience research, focus groups, social media management, copywriting, editing, graphic design, and presentation. Past interns reported that as their comfort level in the role increased, so did their responsibilities.
It’s a great chance to make international contacts while expanding your portfolio.
