The idea for Summer of Social grew out of our own experiences as young individuals struggling to find internships and land our first jobs. We all found our footing in social media via different paths, but today, there are endless opportunities in social media open to students and recent graduates. All you need to capitalize on them is the right training.
Whether you’re stressed about finding an internship, figuring out how to market your liberal arts degree or finding your first full-time position, Summer of Social is the answer. Through practical training and a hands-on internship experience, prepares you will leave the program ready to build a career in social media. Spending an amazing summer in Chicago meeting new friends is just a bonus.
