Why you should consider a marketing internship
Currently studying a Marketing, Communications, Writing, PR, or related Arts course? Looking to use your awesome communication skills for some ‘hands on’ experience in the marketing industry? A marketing internship might be what you’re looking for.
align.me is a B2B sales and marketing consultancy that has served many leading and aspiring companies in Australia, Asia, North America and Europe.
Clients include Australia Post, AXA, Bulletproof, CA, Canon, Cisco, Ernst & Young, GE, IBM, NEC, Nokia, Optus, Oracle SAP, Sony, Trend Micro, Telstra, Vodafone, and World Vision.
These businesses were all wrestling a common problem; their sales and marketing engine was underperforming. align.me turned this around by developing a clear plan for growth, bringing the right people together, and ensuring they have the right skills to achieve their business goals.
align.me takes on 16 marketing interns per year, each to volunteer one day each week for a period of four months. Interns gain hands on B2B experience across an array of areas while becoming part of the dynamic, fast-paced align.me team.
As part of the marketing internship, you will be given the opportunity to be trained and mentored by Australia’s leading B2B marketers providing you with the skills and experience that most marketing professionals with 10 years’ experience still only dream about.

“I could not have asked for a better company with whom to complete an internship. align.me is a visionary, morally sound, pragmatic company that has taught me an awful lot in a very short amount of time. Day in, day out, I was surrounded by an unpretentiously talented group of people who were graciously willing to teach me all they could, whenever they could.”
“I thoroughly enjoyed my entire experience with align.me, and have amassed great respect for this company and its employees. It is a certainly a company that I would love to work for in the future as I have come to truly admire its dedicated vision, integrity, and its ability to extract the most out of its employees.”
“The marketing internship was very well structured and managed, and there was lots of feedback and encouragement. The highlight for me was attending Funnel Academy – Hugh is an amazing teacher, and I walked away feeling really inspired.”
“The marketing internship experience at align.me was a fantastic opportunity, and has given me a greater understanding of B2B marketing. As a result, my general ambition to seek a career in marketing has been replaced with a more refined goal. I am now focused on becoming a Marketing Manager within the B2B field.”
