If you are interested in the entertainment industry, as well as the opportunity at Disney, you could probably also take a look at this one. NBC Universal is one of the most important entertainment companies and in this case they offer an internship in content strategy, another one of the areas of marketing that is experiencing some development, especially online. If you are good at problem solving, analytical, a multi-tasker, and have the ability to conduct proper research and communicate effectively, as well as having some experience in the media industry (although it is not essential for this internship), this role might be for you. Within your internship you will work in the areas of content strategy (analysis, scheduling and financial modelling), new business initiatives (such as non-traditional ways to customer acquisition), content distribution management (tracking and maintaining information updated, collaboration with other teams), and business support and insights (research and monitor trends, analysis). So, if this is something that would be of interest of you, be sure to keep an eye on their careers page.

You will need to know to develop qualitative and structured analysis to identify those opportunities and create go-to-market strategies, as well as analysing the competition and driving product adoption. All in all, this type of internship is for someone who has knowledge of marketing and of strategy in general.
Maybe you are more interested in the technology giant HP, which offers various interships, including ones in 13 month ones in marketing. Within this programme you will, during the first month, learn about the business and HP’s strategies and jargon, as well as meeting the staff in the company. After that, you will be given your own projects to work on for the next 6 months, to put them into practice during the final period of your internship. You will be assisted by a manager at all times needed to improve your development in the job and receive feedback frequently, as well as meeting lots of people to expand your professional network and participating in internal global competitions and games to know people from all over the world and improve your experiences with people from other cultures. So, if you like this opportunity starting in July 2016, why not apply for it right now?
