Role Description

Online Optimism is seeking a Digital Marketing Specialist in the Atlanta, Georgia area

We’re a New Orleans-based digital marketing agency that’s starting a second office in Atlanta, headed by our Social Media Director, Taylor Kincaid. You would work directly under her leadership.
Your internship will last from January to May, 2021 and be 25 – 35 hours/week. You should expect 75% of work to be done remotely, and 25% in-office at PCM in ATL. Our Specialists are typically college seniors, recent graduates, or MBA/MFA program students.

Other agencies might call it an internship program, but we offer and expect more.

As our first-ever Atlanta-based Digital Marketing Specialist, you’ll get hands-on experience in the realm of crafting digital marketing campaigns. This is not your standard internship — don’t expect coffee runs. Our Specialist will cultivate the ability to do real marketing, for real clients, with real dollars behind their ideas. You’ll listen in on clients’ calls, collaborate with professional designers, talk to social media strategists, partner with content marketers, and more.
You will have the opportunity to work on projects based in Atlanta, New Orleans, and nationwide. More than half of our 17 employees started as Specialists and we expect to expand and grow quickly in Atlanta.
