Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Intern

FiveFifty is seeking highly motivated individuals for our Spring Internship program. This is a part-time internship opportunity for 15-20 hours a week. We are looking for interns eager to learn and execute a variety of tasks related to Search Engine Optimization (SEO).
During this program, interns will develop a strong understanding of SEO best practices and strategies. You will learn how to analyze data and make optimizations to continually improve campaign performance and communicate those changes effectively to clients.
The training you receive and the experience you earn in this role will build a strong foundation for your career in marketing. You will be at the center of processes and you will gain exposure to all facets of the agency. As an intern, you will also be exposed to other areas of digital marketing, including programmatic media buying and Pay-Per-Click (PPC) advertising.
