As an intern at Seamgen, you will be treated as just another team member. You will receive the opportunity to make an impact and contribute to the company’s goals and objectives. The intern program at Seamgen is an opportunity to learn and receive hands-on experience that you would not find anywhere else. Throughout the internship you will receive ongoing guidance and support to develop your professional skills and grow as an individual. The Seamgen management team is invested in the growth of their interns and they will put you in a position to succeed.
In our intern program, you are not here to fetch coffee, run errands, or do menial jobs; you are here to help grow the business and turn it into something great.
Seamgen’s intern program has internship opportunities across all the departments: sales and marketing, design and development, and even quality assurance.
The Onboarding Process
Upon joining the team, Seamgen simplifies the onboarding process with the use of department-specific “playbooks.” The playbooks highlight processes and tools, and they serve as an introduction to the initiatives that you will be fortunate enough to work on. Upper management will get you up to speed and ensure you feel comfortable as a new member of the team.
Your responsibilities will be clearly assigned and your tasks are well-defined to ensure you can put your best foot forward. Each week, the interns have a meeting with their manager as to brief the team on the progress they have made so far, whether there is something impeding them, and it’s an opportunity for the team to discuss new strategies or ideas.
As a marketing intern you will have the opportunity to wear a lot of hats and experiment with the different aspects of digital marketing in the modern world. The overarching marketing pillars at Seamgen consist of Content Creation, SEO, Email Marketing, Public Relations, and Social Media. The Seamgen marketing team will give you the opportunity to work on initiatives that you are truly interested in.
