Let’s face it: to land a job in marketing these days, it is essential to intern while you’re in college. It was a major shock to me after I graduated from college that most entry-level positions were looking for someone with at least 1-2 years of experience. Yikes.
I completed 4 internships in school and was able to land a job a few months after graduating. However, even with my numerous internship experiences, it was still pretty difficult for me to transition from the role of an intern to an entry-level employee. Don’t get me wrong, my experiences were great, but as an unpaid intern, I legally was not able to really take on that much responsibility.
Something that I wish I had back in college? ProSky. ProSky is a really awesome hybrid between an online class and an internship. What I love about ProSky is that it is a small online class that will teach you essential skills and then you work with a team on a project for a real client. Being able to brainstorm and present real solutions to real companies is pretty major. Who are the companies that ProSky partners with? Zappos, LinkedIn and Stance Socks to name a few!
The best part about ProSky courses is that they are remote and you can take them from anywhere in the world. This is ideal for when you have that one semester when your class schedule is all over the place and you’re unable to make it into an office for a physical internship. You’re also able to schedule virtual meetings with your mentors and chat with your peers for additional support.
