Beyond Internships

Media Link has helped over 100 students through our internship program. We couldn’t be more proud about seeing them graduate and start their careers.  If an intern exhibits a special passion for our field, we like to continue training and mentoring them by offering them a part-time position. This ensures they have the opportunity to continue to grow both personally and professionally, so they will become more accomplished as our next generation of marketing professionals.
