The expectations of you as an intern

You should either be in the process of or have relevant education in marketing, event planning, tourism or entrepreneurship – or simply be self-taught and a bit of a nerd (in a good way) at what you do.

You are independent, curious, self-motivated and fluent in English, both speaking and writing. If you speak Danish too that would be great, but it’s not a requirement.

The digital marketing internship is full-time, unpaid (unless you receive a subsidy from the government and/or EU) and the duration is 1 to 12 months.

Get a subsidy for your stay abroad

If you are currently studying, you can in most cases continue receiving your subsidy from your local government while taking your internship in Malta.

In addition, you can apply for Erasmus+ financial support to cover your travel costs, accommodation, etc.

If you are an entrepreneur – or would like to become one – you can also receive a €720 monthly grant from the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs exchange programme.

It is a cross-border exchange programme that gives new entrepreneurs the chance to learn from experienced entrepreneurs running small businesses in other EU countries.

We will help you find good and affordable accommodation in Malta. 1-bed furnished flats or studios including all utilities are available from €500 and up per month. 

Alternatively, if you would like to share an apartment you can find one for around half the cost.

You will have to pay the rent and living expenses yourself. However, living expenses in Malta are quite low compared to most other western EU countries.

What previous interns has to say

Sofie Hartmann
Professional Bachelor in Leisure Management

My internship in Malta, which lasted 5 months, has been a lifetime experience.

I have developed a lot throughout my stay at Ricco. I have gained a lot of new skills and knowledge, strengthened those I had before, as well as gained some resilience that I will take with me further when I enter the labour market.

During my internship, I have really been allowed to have hands-on and been a part of everything in the company. I have primarily worked in-depth with digital marketing and event management.

I was assigned to be the project manager, and there I have, in collaboration with Ricco, created a completely new concept for the company. The whole process from start to finish has been so exciting.

I worked with brainstorming, audience selection, SEO, finance and pricing, google ads and email flow, including storytelling and copywriting. It has given me a huge insight into the wide palette and how it all fits together. In addition, it has led to me becoming more confident in my work, and I have been confirmed what I think is exciting and what I think less about.

Ricco is an amazing person which teaching skills is incredibly good. He is patient and gives you space, but also knows how to challenge you so. All this contribute to new knowledge that you will be able to take with you further in life.

I can only recommend being an intern at Ricco Mortensen. It has been an amazing journey I will never forget.

Service economist, Business Academy Aarhus

I have had the joy of being an intern with Ricco Mortensen for 3 months. During my stay, I have had the opportunity to learn the full range of digital marketing, directly from an expert in digital entrepreneurship with more than 25 years of experience.

I have learned things from Ricco, that I have never learned in school or anywhere else. I now know how to make ads on social media and google. I’ve learned how to build a user-friendly website and search engine optimize it, and much more. In short, I have learned everything from a to z about entrepreneurship and online marketing.

In practice, I have worked independently under the guidance of Ricco. It has strengthened me and my confidence and I have received a lot of feedback that i can use forward in life. Ricco is a super good teacher from whom you can learn a lot. He is an expert in how to use the various tools within digital marketing.

Malta’s super nice sunny weather has only improved my internship. Not to forget all the great experiences I have taken with me home. Experiences I would never have had if I had been an intern in Denmark.

Most importantly, my internship at Ricco has opened my eyes to what I find interesting and what I am best at. It has made it clear to me what further education I would like to apply for afterwards.

If you are dreaming of a future in digital marketing or entrepreneurship, I would definitely recommend an internship at Ricco.

Yaser Osman
Professional Bachelor in Innovation & Entrepreneurship

As an intern, I have developed myself a lot professionally in just three months.

Ricco has been great at passing on his knowledge and learning how to use different tools in the right way, to push a business towards success.

In three months, I have learned about Google advertising, Facebook advertising, email marketing, copywriting, website development, SEO optimization and more.

It has been a great experience to get to know Ricco and work with him. As an intern, you are involved when decisions have to be made and your thoughts and opinions are listened to.

Mette Birk Nielsen

Mette Birk Nielsen
PPC Specialist at iProspect

I have had the joy of being an intern for 3 months, where I have had the opportunity to work with the following tasks within online marketing:

  • Adwords, including keyword analysis, ad creation, and performance analysis
  • Facebook advertising and use of Power Editor, including retargeting advertising
  • Email marketing and building email workflow in Campaign Monitor
  • Building landing pages in WordPress
  • SEO, including keyword analysis and texts on landing pages
  • Conversion optimization and split testing

Throughout the internship period, I have been involved in selecting the work assignments and with Ricco’s expert guidance, I have learned a lot about the topics that I think are the most interesting in online marketing.

I have had great freedom to perform the tasks independently, come up with suggestions and test things out. Ricco is good at explaining and showing how to use programs, etc. and to give feedback on what your projekts.

The 3 months of internship has been both exciting and challenging. I have developed my skills and have become wiser about my own competencies, as well as become more focused in relation to which tasks I want to work with in the future.

The internship period has also contributed to me getting a job at a Digital marketing agency as a PPC Analyst.

If you are a student, unemployed or considering becoming self-employed and want to learn about online marketing, then I can only recommend an internship at Ricco.

And if you are goal-oriented and willing to make an effort to learn, you will have the opportunity to gain useful experience and guidance from an expert in entrepreneurship and online marketing.

I want to thank Ricco for a good and educational internship and for helping me out with my job search.
