Are you motivated to meet deadlines and live by your calendar or planner? Can you explain and coach people to meet their goals? If this sounds like you, you might be a good fit for an Account Management Internship!

As the main liaison between client and internal teams, account managers play a critical role in the Deksia process. They are naturally inquisitive and use the intel gathered in client interactions, industry research, and past experience to become expert advocates for their clients. Account managers are also expected to work closely with the project management team to make sure tasks are assigned and promised work is completed.

In this internship, you will work closely with one of our account managers as they carry out their everyday duties such as meeting with clients and relaying updates to the team.

Our past interns are now working at places like Carvana, DornerWorks, Public Communications Inc, Michigan Industrial Container, Da Bomb, Zoominfo

And hold titles such as:

  • Event Manager
  • Customer Advocate
  • Business Development Relations Manager
  • Sales Manager
  • Account Executive
