Considering an internship or co-op with SEOM Interactive? Find out what previous interns said about their experiences:
From Jarod M., Penn State University
“On my first day in the office I figured out that each and every member of the company is eager to help others, which made interning with SEOM a very educational experience. In many cases, questions are encouraged, even by the company’s incredible founder and CEO, Mark.
As far as the work, interns are given similar work as that of full-time employees related to SEO and the Digital Marketing industry. The environment is laid-back, and there’s free lunch every day.
An internship with SEOM is definitely what you make of it, and the people that work there are happy to help you make it great.”
From Duncan B., Drexel University
“In my rather short experience of the working world I can say that the working environment at SEOM is by far the best I have encountered. The small size of the company coupled with the very comfortable work space makes for an enjoyable and relaxed environment. It is like a big family here with plenty of laughs and a general positive attitude. Everyone is very approachable, especially my bosses, which makes me feel very comfortable asking questions and subsequently leads to me learning more.
I am the kind of person who gets bored doing the exact same thing over and over. This is not the case at SEOM. I am constantly changing tasks and on any given day have at least a few completely different projects I can jump around between. This makes all the difference when it comes to staying focused. The daily free catered lunches and a kitchen stocked with more snacks and beverages than one could want are very nice bonuses. Another great benefit is the ability to set my own hours.
I have learned a lot here. The bulk of my work is creating and editing web pages for our clients using either WordPress or a custom CMS for a website. Other projects include: adding negative keywords to paid search campaigns, creating local resource sections on websites, listening to recorded client phone calls, gathering data from Google Analytics and other SEO tools online.
These tasks make up the majority of my work but very often I am given miscellaneous tasks that require a little creativity. In addition to these projects, I am constantly learning new things here. I am included on weekly meetings where I learn many tricks of the trade and new SEO practices. The owner of the company is amazing and goes out of his way to explain why he is having me do a certain task and how it benefits the company. In turn, this gives meaning to the work I am doing and creates a feeling of responsibility not usually felt by someone in an intern position.
Above all, I feel that I am treated more like an employee than an intern here at SEOM.”
SEOM Interactive was my third and final co-op, and from the start I knew it had the potential to be something great. On day 1, I knew next to nothing about SEO — by the end of my co-op, I realized there was still a lot for me to learn, but that’s the nature of the business: it’s constantly changing.
I accepted a full-time position upon graduating from Drexel, and watched the company blossom from 7 to 25 people. Don’t let the commute scare you though — it’s incredibly easy to hop on the train in the morning, and hours are flexible, so you don’t have to wake up at the crack of dawn.
The people that you’ll work for and with are awesome, and more than anything, they’ll value you as a person if you’re committed to learning and getting the job done. If you want a co-op that sets you up for success, SEOM is a fantastic place to be.
“I worked at SEOM Interactive as a content intern during my spring semester before I graduated from Holy Family University with my Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies. I learned about a wide array of clients from various industries, and how to write SEO-optimized content that would bring traffic to websites.
Unlike many other college internships, I was actually paid for my work, which made it all the more rewarding. I’m so grateful I had the opportunity to work for such an amazing company.”
From Anthony G., La Salle University
“For my third internship, I worked for SEOM Interactive as the Public Relations intern for almost a year and I could not have asked for a better internship experience. Even though I was labeled the PR intern, I was by no means limited to just PR. I got to evolve my preexisting public relations skills while also exploring various fields like content writing, as well as learn a bit about SEO and PPC.
Being able to work with clients in different markets was such a rewarding experience, especially because I could come in every day almost guaranteeing that I would be doing something completely different than I was the day before, which is hard to come by in an internship.
The best part was feeling like I was valued as a full-time employee and not just an intern whose voice was unheard and unimportant. Of course, being paid and eating great, free lunches helped!
The team at SEOM is unique, to say the least. They are the most welcoming group I have ever come across. Everyone’s door was open and they were always willing to help me out even if I didn’t regularly talk to them.”
