Interning with us means taking ownership of your projects, having a voice in our decisions and processes, and learning by doing rather than observing. To be successful here you have to thrive on a challenge, be eager to show us what you can do, and be dedicated to your own professional development.
Our marketing communications intern works on a series of copywriting and marketing communications projects as a member of our consumer marketing team. We depend on this intern to write and distribute promotional materials, build relationships with key publics, and contribute to a complete branding strategy.


About the Ultralingua Internship Program:

We aim to be the best source of internship experience for business, language, and marketing-focused individuals within the Twin Cities community.

Interns at Ultralingua work on real marketing projects alongside the rest of the team. We will encourage you to analyze the effectiveness of your work and help you understand how your work adds value to our company. In addition to working on your assigned project, you will set professional development goals and personal learning objectives. We coach our interns on resume and cover letter creation, informational interviewing skills, career exploration, and more.

Here is what some previous interns have had to say about working at Ultralingua:
“This was a world away from my other internship experience because I was given the opportunity to be independent and show that I am able to do something without the immediate help of a superior. I am really excited to bring my samples from this internship with me out into the [workplace] because I am proud of what I have accomplished. Thank you for this opportunity!”
“I enjoyed the independence that was given to me… I can't remember a time this summer that I was bored or was searching for something to do. I really appreciate the confidence that was given to me by my superiors, I think it will better prepare me for the ‘real world’ of work.”

Internship opportunities are available with Ultralingua every Fall, Spring and Summer. Applicants are welcome year-round for any session. If you are interested in applying in advance for a future session, please contact Ashleigh Lincoln at jobs@ultralingua.com for application details.
