How an Internship in Digital Marketing can help boost your Career?
There is a huge talent gap in the Digital Marketing industry. It is an upcoming field with over 1,20,000 jobs to be created by 2018 in India. Companies today are looking for people who can leverage the digital space for promoting their brand. Organizations are moving from traditional marketing into digital space as the virtual space offers flexibility and real time results. As this space is relatively new, companies want to explore options before they hire people for digital marketing.
Digital Marketing itself is a multidisciplinary field with options like search engine marketing(SEM), search engine optimization (SEO), social media optimization (SMO), content marketing, email marketing, inbound marketing, affiliate marketing, web analytics, mobile marketing, etc. Though there are many training institutes offering courses in Digital Marketing, very few offer the option of an internship after the completion of the course.

On the Job Internship
After successful completion of the Certificate Course in Digital Marketing students are further encouraged to hone their skills in what they have learnt in digital marketing training. For this type of internship students are placed with corporate and digital marketing agencies.
