Our internships are pre-professional work experiences that allow you to explore a digital marketing career, and gain practical skills and knowledge in a specific field of expertise.


Internships ​can ​be ​full ​or ​part-time, ​paid ​or ​unpaid, ​for ​academic ​credit ​or ​no ​credit ​and can ​be ​taken ​during ​the ​academic ​semester ​or ​after ​graduation. ​While ​internships ​can be ​part ​of ​a ​first ​or ​second ​year ​experience ​at ​Webgrowth’s ​institutional ​partners, ​some employers ​typically ​prefer ​students ​in ​their ​third ​year ​for ​greater ​depth ​in ​coursework.

Our featured employers:

  • NMPi
  • Traffic Brand
  • Hoorah Digital
  • FlySaf Air
  • Getsmarter

And many more…

SMME (small, medium and micro-enterprises) partners:

  • Virtual SMME internships

A ​virtual ​internship ​provides ​the ​opportunity ​for ​you ​to ​work ​from ​anywhere ​at ​any time. ​The ​rise ​of ​technology ​gives ​you ​the ​opportunity ​to ​work ​from ​remote ​locations, including ​your ​dorm ​room ​or ​home, ​without ​skipping ​a ​beat. ​E-internships ​or ​virtual internships ​have ​become ​an ​attractive ​option ​especially ​if ​your ​goal ​is ​also ​to ​balance part-time ​employment, ​coursework ​or ​if ​you ​live ​in ​a ​remote ​location. ​Evaluating ​quality is ​critical ​in ​determining ​the ​merit ​of ​a ​virtual ​internship ​experience. ​SMME ​real-time satisfaction ​ratings ​on ​our ​support ​platform ​is ​an ​example ​of ​high ​quality ​virtual internships ​and ​project ​experiences.
