    I graduated last summer with an undergrad in marketing, and immediately started grad school studying marketing analytics. I hadn’t been able to find a job due to my little experience (1 unpaid internship & a contract marketing assistant job). I decided to get more internship experience, however this time a paid one. I was offered a marketing internship position for a company (15min drive from my house). It’s an insurance company, not really my ideal industry, and it is a 6month internship, and doesn’t seem like much of an opportunity for employment after as they are always transitioning interns in and out. From the interview it seems like I would be learning valuable things their such as google analytics, hub spot, and working with content creators. The pay is $10 an hour, and I was not a huge fan of the lady I would be working with. I feel that this internship could definitely help me add more skills to my resume since I’m specifically focusing on the analytics aspects in my degree. The people I’ve talked to at the company seem really happy there. Second option is a startup dog product company. The internship is remote, pays $20 an hour, lasts 3 months, and it sounded promising that I could be hired after the 3 months. The position would mostly involve me contacting influencers and making deals with them for product promotion. I would also be cold calling local businesses to see if they are interested in putting the product on their shelves. This job involves a lot less of the technical aspects, and is more sales driven. I also really liked the owner. I am thinking down the road I could incorporate more of the analytics into the company if I got hired. I also feel this is a more fun culture. I’m worried if I didn’t get hired, that I wouldn’t have as much skills to add on my resume, besides communication. Which one should i do? – by /hq/Major-Pea-2745 – –
