Our Specialist program was crafted to be the leading program for college students and recent grads to build a future career in marketing or design. We see it as the last internship you’ll ever do.

Our Specialists work 15 – 35 hours per week collaborating with our full-time employees, working for both our clients and Online Optimism itself. In return, we make sure they receive valuable, real-world experience, hourly pay, and the opportunity to team up with the best and brightest in the city.

  • Georgia
  • Illinois
  • Louisiana
  • Maryland
  • Texas
  • Virginia
  • Washington, D.C.

You may work remotely from any location, or come to our office in New Orleans or D.C.

  • to build on any previous digital marketing experience/knowledge you have.
  • the opportunity to work across departments, acting nimbly to complete tasks on time at a higher quality.
  • to work at one of the top digital agencies.

You have:

  • previous experience, through internships or other extracurricular work, doing digital marketing. We understand this can be frustrating to see requested for our own internship, but we offer one of the highest paid marketing internships in the country and most applicants will have this.

  • the chance to work across different departments in an agency.
