If marketing is your passion, you have come to the right place! We are looking for an agile marketer who is ready to make connections and assist in maintaining Deksia’s media presence.

Ideal candidates are excellent communicators who are willing to try on multiple hats. Projects may range from pitching press releases, to writing email newsletters, to even hosting webinars!

They must also have a knack for managing multiple projects at once, as well as the focus to follow through. Interns working under the CMO will have opportunities to work on campaigns start to finish – from researching the latest trends to strategy execution. They will even be able to see how campaigns are doing in real-time thanks to SEO optimization and various tracking tools.

Interns in this position report directly to the Chief Marketing Officer, who resides in Portland, Oregon. You must be able to work out of this office in order to be considered for the CMO internship position. You must also be able to work independently while the CMO travels for speaking engagements.

Need more incentive?

This internship is ideal for those interested in pursuing careers such as:

  • General marketing – from coordinator to CMO
  • Digital marketing
  • Public relations
  • Brand management
  • Analytics and measurement

Skills or character traits we want to see in you

Strong analytical / critical thinking skills 🧐 🙌
Since you’ll be helping the CMO report on marketing campaigns, it’s important that you enjoy reviewing the numbers and making sure campaigns are on track.
