Amplified Launch Internship Program

Amplified Launch is an internship program offered by Amplified Digital Agency in St. Louis, where students take on some of our real agency projects, while working directly with our leadership team, sales team and clients. Yes, we’re looking to add talented people to our Agency, but we also want to help shape the future of our industry by working with students who are focused, creative and thoughtful. Those who seek out a solution to every challenge. Those who keep at it until the project is perfect. Those who move fast and let nothing stand in their way of success. We want students who want to learn from and gain experience in digital marketing and communications. We want people who are ready to learn and ready to do it at the rapid speed that digital marketing technology changes.

We welcome the opportunity to help students achieve their career goals and aspirations.

Each Amplified Launch internship opportunity includes the following:

  • 4-6 month paid internship (based on your schedule)
  • Up to 20 hours per week paid internship program!

At Amplified Digital, we believe that teamwork is essential to our company’s overall success and client satisfaction, which means that our interns aren’t kept busy filing paperwork, refilling staplers, stocking printer paper, fetching coffee or doing any other stereotypical intern task, because this isn’t a normal internship. Amplified Launch offers an opportunity for students and young professionals to learn each aspect of the digital marketing industry. Amplified Launch brings together the real-world experience that young professionals need to make decisions about their future careers, while being embedded in a fast-paced advertising agency culture as a true asset to our team.
