What You Can Do Now to Land Your Dream Job Later

This is a sponsored feature. All opinions are 100% from Her Campus.

What do you think of when you imagine the internship of your dreams? Whatever industry you’re in, you’re probably hoping to seriously impress your boss, work alongside experts in your field and—if all works out—land a job at the end of it all. Then reality hits, and you’re getting to know your boss’s coffee order better than you know her, and you’re working more closely with the copy machine than you are anybody else in the office.

It’s time to change that reality—we’re making it possible for three collegiettes to land internships that promise a valuable learning experience! With ProSky, you’ll have the opportunity to work on projects and execute campaigns with teams (for real companies!) and be trained by top professionals from Marc Eckō, Facebook, Sony, Twitter and more. You’ll come out of the internship with actual work experience to show on your resume (since “Expert Coffee Runner” doesn’t count), plus concrete examples to add to your portfolio. And as millennials, you’ll really like what we’re going to tell you next—the entire experience takes place online (choose from internships lasting anywhere from nine to 12 weeks), so you’re not limited by your location or schedule… nor will you need to get your one business casual outfit dry-cleaned to go into the office every week.

Right now, ProSky is offering internship programs in SEO, where you’ll learn strategies on how to increase visibility across online searches; Digital Marketing, where you’ll master the digital strategy tools you need to increase a company’s reach; and Social Media Marketing, where you’ll be taught that social media is about way more than just how many Instagram likes you can get on that Valencia-filtered shot of your latte. You’ll have a chance to win one of each (just let us know on the giveaway form which one you want to enter for)! Even if you don’t take home the grand prize, you can still score 20% off the program cost and get priority placement by registering with the code “Hercampus20” by 1/31/15!

The best part about ProSky? You’ll be building close connections with mentors, industry professionals and peers (when you once only grew to have an intimate relationship with the copy room)—all while completing real-world tasks using employable, high-demand skills. Think of these internships as an extended interview (companies use ProSky as a recruiting tool!); when these companies see what you’re capable of bringing to the table, you’ll pretty much make the short list for any future internships or better yet, job opportunities.   

This is the future of internships, collegiettes—there’s no better way to get on the fast track to your dream job.
