What does a GXG internship look like?
GXG strives to make our internship as valuable as possible for our interns! We've recently re-worked the internship structure so interns have exposure to all of our different business units – sales, fulfillment, research, operations, and marketing – as well as an opportunity to work on special projects, based on their interests and current business needs.
We're passionate about this structure because it lets our interns explore a variety of different roles without pigeon- holing them to one function We work with interns during the interview process to align projects to the individual as much as possible! See the second page for sample projects from past interns.
Throughout the internship, interns will also have regular meetings with our CEO, Craig Lemasters, who will share feedback about your performance as well as provide personal coaching
Where will you be working?
As a GXG intern, you will primarily be based in our Atlanta office. Additionally, there may be potential for limited travel to meet with clients in-person.
