Business Development Internship Summer 2019

What's This All About?

Perfect Search Media offers a sales internship to give interns experience with business-to-business sales. The training and practice will give interns ample experience and growth in many areas: networking, especially within the Chicago digital space; relationship building; CRM software, especially Salesforce; ability to analyze and adjust strategies; cold calling and emailing; understanding of the digital marketing industry; communication; and organization.

At Perfect Search, we love our interns! In fact, many of our current employees began here as interns, so this is a great stepping stone for anyone interested in personal growth, learning, and responsibility.

This opening is for students and recent graduates available during the summer for three months. Interns must be available part-time for a minimum of 3 full days a week in office, preferably including Thursdays, beginning in May/June. This internship pays $12 per hour and will provide the opportunity to work closely with our team to deliver value to the business.
