a message from our managing director
Our internship is designed to offer real-world, in-office experience. When you join our internship program, you will truly join our team. From monthly HubSpot certifications and conferences to coffee walks and community involvement, you’ll gain more than just marketing experience with GROWL. You’ll join morning meetings, present to clients, and learn office management skills.
A GROWL internship goes beyond a stereotypical “marketing internship” that’s focused on social media. Sure, you’ll support our internal marketing and social media, but with GROWL, you’ll learn advanced marketing and sales strategies, technologies, and campaign tactics.

Bring YOUR ideas to life for GROWL and our clients.
You’ll work on major projects, having a real impact on our business.
"GROWL's internship helped prepare me for my career because I could implement the concepts I learned in class to real-world clients. This increased my confidence in both continuing my education and in pursuing my career."

What our interns say
what to expect when applying
From submitting your app to joining the pack, here's what you can expect.
We get it. Applying for jobs (yes, including internships) can be stressful. When you apply at GROWL, we’re not here to shut your dreams down. We’re here to help make them a reality.
Complete our application (below), and be sure to include your resume and work samples. Your work samples can come from your classwork or related jobs/internships that you've had. Don’t forget to show your personality — we’re not all robots here, and we care about who YOU are.
2. Meet & Greet
Prospective interns will first interview with our core hiring team (typically your future supervisor). This is a casual conversation to get to know YOU and see if GROWL is the right fit. We'll ask about points in your resume and cover letter, but we also want to hear about your hobbies and passions.
3. the growl challenge
Candidates who move beyond the ‘meet and greet’ will receive our famed “GROWL Challenge.” This is a timed (24-hour) challenge, includes small tasks resembling the work you might be doing, and shows you how we communicate. For us, the challenge gives insight into how you solve problems, your personality, and provides a foundation for your growth.
4. Team Interview & Challenge Review
After we’ve reviewed your challenge, candidates that move on in the process will be offered a second interview. This session will include a short review of your challenge and may include more GROWLERs. This phase is also a culture-check to ensure you get to meet your (hopefully) future team and fit in.
5. Decision & Workforce Center
Successful candidates will be offered a role at GROWL. If you are not selected, we will provide any feedback and welcome you to apply again in the future. Depending on eligibility, most of our interns go through the Mesa County Workforce Internship Program, which will require additional paperwork before you can start at GROWL.
If you’re selected for a GROWL internship, we'll work together to define your schedule. You can expect to spend your first 1-2 weeks onboarding, which will include completing several HubSpot certifications, shadowing, and system training.
"This internship has given me everything I need to succeed in the future. From teaching me about time management and operating hard tasks to simply having a place where I feel supported and encouraged, GROWL has taught me so much.
I have been so lucky to find a place that encourages me to try new things, make mistakes, and get back up and try again. Failure at GROWL isn't scary when you know it's an opportunity for growth. I am so lucky to have had a place to learn and apply my knowledge outside of the classroom, and I am so thankful for the opportunities GROWL gave me."
