Get Job Ready
One thing that sets UVM’s digital marketing certificate apart is the emphasis on real-world practice.
Through the Capstone Project and the PACE Micro-Internship Program, you will gain invaluable practical experience, develop your self-confidence, and boost your resume.
A successful digital marketing expert integrates all the online marketing channels into a cohesive marketing strategy that drives results. In the final week of the program, you will do just that through your Capstone Project.
“You can use the capstone project, which is a multi-channel campaign, for your own purpose. Whether you choose a brand that you currently work for, or whether you’re hoping to interview for a position, and you have some ideas you want to share with the hiring manager of that brand.”
Christopher Hill, Instructor UVM Digital Marketing Fundamentals
PACE Micro-Internship Program
UVM’s Digital Marketing Fundamentals program offers you a unique opportunity to put into practice what you have learned through a paid micro-internship. This will allow you to gain valuable professional experience and build meaningful connections with organizations across local and national industries, all while getting paid.
What is a Micro-Internship?
A micro-internship is a flexible, short-term, paid professional assignment, like a consulting or contractor position, and will usually involve between 10 and 40 hours of work. It can be done remotely and is offered throughout the year. A micro-internship is a great option for students who wish to gain valuable professional experience through a short-term commitment and demonstrate the education gained from UVM’s Digital Marketing Fundamentals certificate program.
Micro-internships provide both meaningful work experience and a direct source of income. The flexibility and remote-friendly nature of these projects make them a great fit for busy students seeking new opportunities. They offer the opportunity to:
- Grow your professional portfolio and network.
- Build relationships with new employers and access additional connections and opportunities.
- Display your skills and gain hands-on experience in a particular industry, organization, and role.
- Explore a wide range of possible career paths or focus on your existing career goals.
