After spending four years in the great north woods of Maine, I graduated college and moved home to navigate through “the real world”. Upon starting my internship at Champ, I was excited because I wanted to work at a digital marketing agency, but nervous to find out what working in an office environment would be like. At school, we learned about the industry, but reading a book and performing the actual task is very different.

At Champ, I gained an enormous amount of experience across various areas of digital marketing. I worked closely with project managers on assignments for clients and helped the developing team with HTML coding on various websites. Before I worked at Champ I had no idea how much planning and how many hours went into the development of a new website. I took classes in college on Search Engine Optimization (SEO), but I never had to opportunity to see the actual results when it was used in a live environment. I had the opportunity to learn all the different methods to improve the SEO on projects for the clients while working for Champ.

I never felt like “an outsider” as many of my friends had explained when they had their internships. At Champ, I was always involved with the team and everyone was very easy to approach if I had questions or needed help with a project. I looked forward to coming to work, as I was challenged with new projects and gained experience in all different areas of the web industry.

After much indecision throughout college, I finally narrowed down my career aspirations as I entered my junior year: I dared to take on the marketing industry. Even entering my senior year, though, my marketing experience had been solely classroom-centric. I had no clue as to which branch of marketing, which department, or which position I wanted when I graduated from Boston College. Never having had a marketing internship before, I was incredibly eager to begin at Champ and test out the digital realm.

When I first came into the office, I was asked what I wanted to learn more about. I admired that, as a small company, the team was willing to personalize my internship to make it a worthwhile educational experience for me. It wasn’t only the ping pong table in the middle of the office that got me excited—their flexibility did too!

My list of responsibilities ranged from social media research and analysis to HTML coding, and it was definitely fun to dabble in all crevices of the digital marketing industry. Through feeling out all sorts of tasks, I learned what I did and did not like about digital marketing as well as what did and did not come naturally to me. I thoroughly felt that I was an important asset to the company—not merely an intern. I was not assigned intern work. The Champ team did not hold any challenges back from me, and for that I am grateful. Everything I did was incredibly hands-on, from writing content for Champ’s website to aiding in the creation of a referral program. I was truly producing value for Champ and its clientele.

My internship at Champ allowed me to uncover more about my digital marketing aspirations. In my last year at Boston College, digital marketing sparked my interest, and I now know definitively that digital is the path I want to venture down. Champ offered me an amazing semester that opened my eyes to all of the opportunities that await me post-graduation!

I interned with Champ Internet Solutions during my senior year and learned about the world of SEO and internet marketing. This was an invaluable experience that undoubtedly helped me grow personally and professionally. Champ gave me the independence I needed while at the same time supporting me and providing me with meaningful work that was delivered to the clients.

I worked with Kyle, the Director of E-Commerce and project manager. Kyle was a great mentor and helped guide me through the project of redesigning the client SEO reports. With his guidance, I became well versed in Google Analytics, AdWords, and Excel. I had minimal knowledge of internet marketing when I started, but Kyle and Seth taught me everything I needed to know and were always open to help and answer questions.

The atmosphere in the office is one the best you will find anywhere. Kyle, Seth, Eric, Nick, and Logan made the office feel like home, sometimes playing ping pong to break up the day. Clare, Christina, Shayna, and Marita were very kind and kept the office in a bright mood. Everyone was very welcoming and I felt at home right from the start. One of my best memories at Champ is when the team stayed late one evening to have a ping pong tournament. . My internship was a great experience and I learned so much while being at Champ. Everything that I learned at Champ about work and life will definitely help me in the future. I want to thank everyone at Champ for showing me how great working in a young, fast paced environment can be!

Coming into my internship with Champ Internet Solutions, I had no idea what to expect. To put it bluntly I had no clue what I wanted to do with my life, and I was hoping that having some actual work experience would help me figure it out. I still don’t know exactly what I want to do, but working at Champ has definitely helped me narrow my focus. Completing a wide range of tasks at Champ definitely helped me realize what I like to do and what I really don’t like.

One of the biggest things I’ve learned at my time at Champ is that I really enjoy working on different clients. I have gotten to work on various clients that are in different industries. It made my work interesting, and it was fun researching the competitors and learning more about the industry. Whether that be through information technology consulting or working at a marketing firm, I’m not 100% sure, but I do know that I want to work in different industries with different clients so I’m constantly challenged and always learning new things.

Another important thing I will take away is that I really like doing things with analytics. During my last couple weeks I got the chance to look at keyword rankings for one of Champ’s clients. It was so interesting to learn through hands on experience rather than just learning about it in the classroom. This is something I hope to have more opportunity to learn about in the future.

At the end of the day, I am still struggling to decide what I want to do with my life, but I can definitely say that my time at Champ has helped me realize certain aspects that I want in my future career. At school, I chose Information Systems and Finance as my majors because I enjoyed the classes, but based of the classes alone I had no idea where I could apply what I like in class to the real world. My biggest suggestion to anyone who is struggling with the same issues as me is to get as much work experience as possible. Working at Champ has showed me where I can apply what I like in school to a real life job and for that I am grateful.

Over the summer at Champ Internet, I have learned a tremendous amount about social media and the Internet as a whole. The first thing I learned, and something that I used every day while at Champ was how a good website looks and functions. This is incredibly useful knowledge in a day and age when any viable company needs a website, as it is more than likely a potential client’s first impression of a business. A great compliment to that is the knowledge I gained about SEO and how crucial it is to making a company visible to the public. I got to spend nearly an entire day researching and writing a blog post. Before this, I had never written a real blog post or understood why people did. Now, I am much richer from the experience and understand how it can get people with interests relative to your business on your website without having to be interested in purchasing something. As a marketing major, some of the most valuable information I learned here at Champ regarded social media. I learned a lot about the sides of Facebook and Google only a business like this, not a personal account would deal with. I learned a lot about how things are ranked in Google as well as how to use Google AdWords, another very useful skill now and in the future. I also learned a lot about Facebook ad campaigns, and how to make thoughtful and response provoking Facebook posts.

When I landed my position at Champ I immediately had a vision in my head of what I thought the place would look and feel like, and it did not disappoint. It looked like just what I imagined an Internet company would, right down to the colors of the walls. The people here are very up to date with technology and use it to their advantage. They even had a ping pong table right in the room my desk was in. CHAMP Internet is full of young, hardworking professionals that a soon to be college graduate like myself was very lucky to be around for the summer before my senior year. The atmosphere is light and easy to work in. No one is over your shoulder telling you what to do every minute of every day. I was given and job and trusted to do it This made me feel like a real employee, not an intern. For other internships I’ve done, the “big wigs” were far away and hard to contact. But not here at Champ. The CEO Seth is just down the hall and very approachable and friendly. Also because of its size, I was able to really keep track of what was going on regarding the business as a whole. At larger companies, you have a job to do, but you have no idea what initiative or who you are helping. Here at Champ, I was always up to date on new clients we signed, what sites were close to completion and launch, and was always aware of what project I was working on and who I was helping. Seeing these big movements made me feel like I was a part of something much bigger then myself and isn’t that what being a member of a company is all about?

Scrolling through the posts on the Craigslist business section soon became one of my daily habits, as I searched for an appropriate job that would keep me busy and pay the bills during my summer at home. As a rising senior, I had high hopes that I could find a local internship related to new media technology that could expand my experience and refine my skills. For a while, job postings looked promising and the accompanying descriptions inflated my hopes. And then, I began to discover why – most jobs were unpaid. Finding a paid internship was like searching for a needle in a haystack. During my search, I came across a job opening for a Social Media Marketing Intern at Champ Internet. Upon reading the job description, exploring their website, and determining the location of Champ’s office, the opportunity seemed to align perfectly with my interests. I sent in my cover letter and resume, but based on former Craigslist experiences, did not expect a response.

After a couple of weeks that left me fresh out of luck, I got a phone call from an unrecognizable number – it was Champ. Two phone interviews and one face to face interview later, I set up shop at the front desk with Dana Worby-Robinson – Champ’s Marketing Associate. Upon solidifying the details for my position, I learned that I would be writing content for 250 school profiles for one of our clients. I would also have the opportunity to learn some html, SEO, and provide valuable input and feedback related to current web-related projects at Champ. The position would be part time, and it would also be paid. Overall, I was very satisfied with the outcome.

It’s now been two months that I have worked at Champ, and I am glad that I made the decision to do so. Above all else, the people at Champ are what make the office as great as it is; the closely-knit atmosphere is enough to make anyone feel relaxed enough to call it home. Seth, a fellow Hollistionian, is a great CEO, always has his door open, and is a champion singer of Red Solo Cup. Oh, and do not even think about stepping into the office if you have a dog allergy. If you love sushi, soccer, headbands, and cats, then Dana will be your be your new best friend – I could not have asked for a better person to work with. Then Marita, Champ’s Director of Project Management, is a dog-trainer extraordinaire, and her partner in crime Karma can make even the toughest person melt. My hat goes off to Nick, who drinks more coffee than anyone I know and always has a huge smile on his face. Then there’s Zach, who is a fierce ping-pong competitor (yes, there’s a ping pong table in the office) and a great go-to for a mid-afternoon chat. Finally, we reach the man cave. Logan, Eric, and Kyle reside in three different corners of Champ’s man cave, and have taught me very valuable lessons while at Champ. One, of many, being that the coffee machine will not work if the on switch has not been pushed.

But despite the great atmosphere at Champ, there is always plenty of work to keep everyone busy. At the end of the day, a deadline is a deadline, and in spite of the fun everyone works hard to get the job done (that was not intended to rhyme). During my internship, I have been able to provide input to Seth and Logan for the The Future of You website, and have even seen some of my suggestions come to life. My main project has involved researching and writing school profile pages for the creation of a summer courses website with Dana, and that has taken up the bulk of my internship. I have definitely strengthened my research and writing skills, and am glad that I have had the chance to do so. Seth also gave me a stellar crash course in html basics that would regularly take six to eight weeks in a classroom setting.

I interned with Champ Internet Solutions over the summer before my sophomore year in 2010. The most important things I learned included not only coding and design skills, but also how to sell myself. Working for a company that people know they can trust meant that I could practice my coding and design skills without having to prove to people that I was worth the salary they were paying me. By working for a design company like Champ, I experienced a lot of things that I couldn’t experience while doing freelance work.

I began interning on the first of June in 2010. I came in every Tuesday and worked from home during the week. This was probably one of the best experiences of my professional career thus far, because it proved to me that designing and building websites was something that I would like to do for a long time. I was doing work, but I was enjoying what I was doing and at the end of the day I felt accomplished at both what I had created and what I had learned that day.

I had the desire to join the Champ Internet Solutions team for a few reasons. I had been looking for freelance design work for a little while, and Champ provided work for me and so much more. Not only was I given steady work; I was given work that challenged all of my design and coding skills. When there was something that I didn’t know how to do off the top of my head, I was forced to find out the answer and make it work. I continue to look back on my time at Champ and I know that it has taught me so much and I continue to use the skills that I’ve learned there. I had the chance to see what a company like this can create and it has instilled in me the desire to continue to learn more and apply my skills in different ways to get an even better result.

While working with Champ Internet Solutions I was able to see what it is like to be a part of a team. I was able to present my ideas to someone else and act upon their feedback. I saw what it was like to work with someone else’s code and modify it to reach a common goal. I was able to see my skills and the skills of my partner being used together to do things that we may not have been able to do on our own.

I feel that every experience I had at Champ Internet Solutions was a positive one and I learned things that would have been impossible to learn doing freelance work on my own. I am grateful to have had the opportunity and I hope that we can continue to work together in the future.

During the past few months at Champ, I have been involved in various projects. Being that I was involved in different tasks, I learned a great deal. Specifically, I learned a lot about the PR, marketing and search engine optimization aspects of the company. A lot of my time at Champ was spent researching for a client that is a Massachusetts oil company. Working on their town-by-town campaign was a great way to introduce me to PR. By searching the upcoming events, I learned how important it is for different companies to get involved in the community.

When I researched social media for a law firm and an accessories e-commerce site, I learned more about marketing. Looking at comparable firms Facebook pages helped come up with ideas to enhance our client’s Facebook page. For the accessories e-commerce site, I discovered that researching other shoe companies’ pages was the best way to figure out how to enhance the site, encourage more people to join/like the page, and increase traffic. These projects taught me the importance of marketing strategies for different companies.

When I wasn’t working on marketing and public relations strategies, I spent my time learning about search engine optimization. Throughout my time here I worked on weekly keyword rankings for three of Champ’s clients; an ecommerce site for aircraft supply, a distribution business and a rafting company in Jackson Hole. Each week I would search on Google different keywords relating to the company and record the rank of the website link. I learned that having this data is extremely beneficial because if someone were to search “Jackson Hole rafting” on Google, they would click one of the first couple of links. The higher the rank, the better it is for the company and knowing the rank can help developers to push the link higher. These were just a few of the different projects I worked on that I learned a lot from.

Everyone in the office is so nice and helpful. They are extremely knowledgeable and took their time when teaching me something to ensure that I understood. I had a wonderful experience at Champ it was a lot of fun to work here this summer and I definitely learned a lot during my internship.

Having entered the Champ office knowing practically nothing about the work I would be doing, I never felt overwhelmed or helpless. Right from the beginning, everyone I worked with did an excellent job of explaining what I needed to do and what was expected of me. Seth’s experience and knowledge of his business is clear. Almost immediately on my first day, he sat down with me and described the bigger concepts of website authoritativeness, relevancy, and indexibility. Within 5 minutes I knew what Champ was about. Understanding the purpose of my work allowed me to complete it more thoroughly and added to the quality of my experience.

The schedule offered was flexible and convenient. I was able to work when I had time and felt comfortable leaving when necessary for appointments or other commitments. Seth’s attitude about my hours accommodated to my rather lengthy commute from home and the possible interference of traffic or weather. Additionally, being paid hourly relieved me from the stress of wasting the company’s time or money on days I did work less.

The office itself was a great environment. Marita, Zach, Logan, Kathleen and Eric were all helpful with any questions I had and served as enjoyable company in general. I really got a sense of how everyone’s part fits together to make a client’s website complete. There seems to be a solid respect between all employees; everyone’s job is important and everyone stands on the same level. Champ is definitely one of the healthiest work environments I have been in. The necessary amount of stress and motivation exists in the midst of a relaxed and comfortable setting.

The only criticism I have is that I wish I received more feedback. I sometimes felt that perhaps I was grading websites slightly wrong and thereby either missing prime opportunities for listing or causing more work for someone else later. Although, I understand that I really did not work for an extended period and therefore there was not much time to really sit down and discuss what I was doing.

Overall, I have learned a great deal about what Champ does and how the Internet functions in general. I improved my skills in some programs I have used before, such as Excel, and picked up knowledge of new programs as well, such as Optilink. There is more work to be done and I hope to continue contributing hours once I have moved back to school.

When I arrived on my first day at Champ in October 2011, all of the employees were very friendly and welcoming even though I was brand new. Their friendly nature assured me from the start that it would be very easily to get along with everyone and my new work environment would be a pleasant one to be immersed in.

From the beginning, I was not sure what type of work I would be doing. For you sports fans out there, I felt like the rookie stepping in amongst the pros. Prior to Champ, I had only a very basic understanding of what working in the web development and marketing industries entailed.

My days at Champ were mostly spent working on a website that sold precision measurement tools—a field that I knew absolutely nothing about coming in to the project. I used Excel regularly to help load and categorize all the products and data for the website’s e-commerce section. I also learned a lot on how to use Adobe Photoshop with this project. I had only used the program once or twice before, and through practice and some explanation, I was able to edit images to include in the product pages. If any questions came up, Seth, as well as everyone else in the office was more than happy to help me out. By the end of my time at Champ, I had a fair amount of tricks I picked up in Photoshop.

Working in the Champ office was fun and a great learning experience. Being at the office part-time each week was great, however, I wish I could have been there full-time. When I left at the end of my week, I could not wait until the following week to get back into the office. When one of us needed a short break or to blow off some steam during the day, the ping-pong table would be occupied with a quick rally or game. In addition to developing many of the professional skills required in today’s working world, I drastically improved my ping-pong skills as well.

Before Champ, I had never really been immersed in an office setting. Being able to have that experience alone was very beneficial for me and everyone contributed to teaching me what it was like working in a professional setting. I would not be where I am today without having worked at Champ or without the helpful people in the office, especially Seth. And overall, my work at Champ helped me land a full-time position. I am truly going to miss working in the Champ office.

In the summer of 2010, I was offered a job as an intern at Champ Internet Solutions in Newton, MA. At first I was unsure what to expect, as I knew I had little experience in the Internet and web design field. The little experience I had came years before in junior high school when my friend and I experimented with constructing our own websites. This made me slightly nervous, but despite this I felt my computer skills were strong enough to succeed at Champ.

When I first arrived at the office I was surprised by how young the staff at Champ was. I was excited to be able to work with people my age that appeared very enthusiastic about their jobs. After meeting Seth, I could tell this was going to be a great experience for me. He immediately made me feel comfortable, introduced me to my co-workers and explained to me a little about what I would be working on. I was going to be learning about and working with SEO (search engine optimization). I was put in charge of a project and given responsibilities right away. It was very refreshing to get work that allowed me to be creative, as with previous office internships I was expected to do mindless tasks. Champ gave me the ability to come up with my own ideas about the SEO strategy and implement them myself.

In addition to the SEO work, I was asked to prepare a keyphrase strategy for a company and work to create a presentation that I would be involved in presenting. This was both a daunting and exciting challenge for me. I began to realize that I really enjoy the business aspects of the work I was doing and I was able to generate ideas that were eventually used in the final presentation. I was both proud of my accomplishment and astonished that I was entrusted with so much responsibility in doing something entirely new and foreign to me. I found having this experience outside my field was important to me in becoming a well-rounded employee in the future.

The environment in the office was friendly and uplifting, which never made going to work a chore or boring. It was nice to work in a relaxed environment were I was free to work alone and at my own pace, but always had help available if I had questions about anything. We were even treated to lunch on occasion and co-workers were always going out on lunch breaks together. I was very impressed with Seth and the professional way he conducts his business. It is very inspiring to see a young person excelling at what they are passionate about. I would highly recommend this as a place of employment to anyone looking to hone and utilize his or her skills in an industry that is ever growing and expanding.

A summer spent interning for Champ Internet Solutions is one to remember. As a Public Relations and English major, I worked mostly with Kathleen Podurgiel whose knowledge in the fields of writing and advertising was infinite. Kathleen allowed me to explore my creative side by creating promotional pieces and gave me great feedback on my work. At Champ, they want their interns to learn and grow. When you get feedback on something here, you don’t get told you did it wrong. Instead, Kathleen offered suggestions and took the time to create examples to help me better my work. She wanted me to create pieces that I was proud of and could take with me to put in my portfolio. That’s precisely what I did.

When I was not working with Kathleen, I worked with everyone else in the office. Many times, the work completed was a collaborative effort between myself and other interns. For example, at the end of the summer, Eric and I worked together on creating a user manual for a client to help them understand how to make changes to their website. Eric took his time explaining all the ins and outs of the system to me so I could properly document the steps needed in order to receive a specified result. By combining each of our strengths and working with one another efficiently, the finished product was achieved.

Besides gaining a wealth of knowledge from my time spent interning here, I also gained friendships. At Champ, everyone has respect for each other and has the best wishes for all to achieve success. It was this kind of work environment that enabled me to flourish and contribute as an intern. I look forward to using what I learned during my summer with Champ in the future as I know it will be beneficial to my growth in the field.

Work Hard, Play Hard. This is one of the first statements that Champ Internet Solutions founder Seth Worby told me. This statement always sounds good, but hard to see actualized in a real world business. However, Seth has proven it is possible time and time again (especially the hard work part).

Working with a startup company has always been something that I have wanted to do, so when the opportunity presented itself to work with Seth and his team I jumped at it. During our initial conversations I expressed my interest in expanding my knowledge of SEO and Google Analytics best practices. Seth didn’t waste any time throwing me into a variety of Analytics and Adwords projects. This proved to be a great learning experience for me. I was able to draw upon my current knowledge while being able to talk with Seth and the office manager, Zach Cohn, at any time. The open door management style that Seth has works extremely well in the office. He is constantly involved in all aspects of projects while giving each individual the ability to own their projects. One perfect example of this was the task of development the framework for different reports. I had the freedom to start this project from scratch and then tweak different aspects and maximize their efficiency.

While constantly working hard, Seth provided multiple ways to keep the energy high. Sometimes it was buying a pizza from the local restaurant or playing a few games of tennis on the Wii. No matter what was going on in the office, the atmosphere was great. It didn’t matter if we were in the middle of a project or enjoying a slice of pizza, everyone was open to discussing creative ways to solve problems for our clients.

Working at Champ Internet Solutions has been a great experience so far and I am looking forward to gaining as much experience and knowledge as I can!
