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.

And many more…

In 2019 the digital marketing industry will need at least 300 interns across South Africa’s major cities.

Virtual 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.

Additional ways to gain experience

Experiences provide you with insight into a career field that can lead to better decision-making down the road. Additionally, the experience is highly valued by employers as it shows your interests and your skills development progress. Webgrowth can be with you every step of the way to empower you as you take action towards your career ambitions.
