Digital Marketing and Data Analysis Internship


Chicago, Illinois, United States

Now looking for spring and summer candidates.  The ideal applicant is a senior or recent graduate.

Perfect Search offers a Digital Marketing and Data Analysis Internship program focused on learning pay-per-click advertising/search engine marketing (PPC/SEM) and social media advertising, as well as search engine optimization. Many of our current employees started in this program at Perfect Search, and we pride ourselves on providing a top-notch learning experience that provides the strong foundation needed to become an expert in the industry.  

Accepted candidates (Junior Analysts) will start the program with a fairly intensive training process that will thoroughly expose them to the basics of digital marketing. Junior Analysts will assist the digital marketing teams on client campaigns, projects, reporting calls, mock calls, blog posts, and other assigned tasks that enable them to experience the ins-and-outs of the industry first hand. Junior Analysts work independently, closely with other program peers, and alongside current full-time analysts on tasks and analysis.  There is an opportunity for full-time employment at completion of program.
