SEO Paid Intern

Do You Love SEO?

Eternity, located in Downtown Burlington, VT is looking for a fun new crew member to join our dynamic team. The role of SEO Paid Intern requires being passionate about always learning, a basic working knowledge of SEO and getting into the mindset of our clients and their clients. We work with such clients as Ski Vermont, Let's Grow Kids, Vermont Maple, Green Up Vermont and hundreds more.

The SEO Paid Intern will be responsible for SEO strategy, keyword planning, on-page optimization and site updates for several but not all of our clients. 

This is an entry-level paid internship position and ample onboarding and training will be provided directly by our Founder, Mike Lannen and our Digital Marketing Specialist, Shawna Shortsleeve

Looking for a career change? This position will be an amazing opportunity for you to pursue that new direction.

Communication is key. You should love helping people and be great at talking with and responding to clients. You must be able to work collaboratively with and take direction from both clients and our project manager.

While this position is remote for the foreseeable future, when deemed safe we will work again in our Burlington, Vermont HQ and will ideally want applicants to be located in Vermont.

A willingness to learn new things and take on more responsibilities over time is a plus. The right person is a creative, people-friendly self-starter that is highly organized and can keep multiple projects moving forward, and report on them daily. You approach challenges with a roll-up-your-sleeves, heck-yeah, GSD attitude.
