Jump start your career with hands-on experience
At iLS Network, we believe that interns should get just as much out of an internship as the host company! Join a passionate team that is excited to help you learn and grow. Get trained on a fun line-up of topics and projects that will help build each intern's skillset and portfolio, while providing value for our business. Set yourself up for success while you're in college, and impress employers when you graduate.
iLS Network was founded by a team of Florida off-campus student housing experts and we are excited to have more students join our team! Our internship offers participants the opportunity to learn more about SEO, online marketing, social media strategy, sales through relationships, market research, and the day-to-day of a start-up company.
Our team was remote before it was cool. Interns will be expected to meet once a week for a training and review session via Zoom and work and tasks will be completed remotely.
Check out our various student housing markets from SwampRentals in Gainesville, to RentTally in Tallahassee or ApartmentsForBulls in Tampa.
Take it from our interns:
Olivia, pictured in the middle, found SwampRentals as a graduating senior at the University of Florida's College of Communications career fair. She excelled in sales and quickly took on a customer facing role. She was offered a full time position after graduation and has since built meaningful relationships with clients from Gainesville to Orlando. She loves the ownership she has as the Market Director, especially with being self-managed and working on her own schedule. Olivia is pictured receiving two Volunteer of the Year awards at the 2021 Florida Apartment Association Annual Conference.

Now, she's impressing her coworkers at her new job:
"I just had a meeting with our company's head of SEO and he started like explaining everything in lamens terms, and finally I shared my experience working with you and was able to have such a deep conversation about it. He was very impressed with how much I knew and how up to date it all was.
So thank you! I'm not on the SEO team here but you helped me really impress a fellow coworker."
"I'd definitely recommend the company and the opportunity to be taught by such a great team. That internship experience was very impressive to my current employers and is a big reason why I secured the job."

The internship was an overall great experience, and I am so thankful for all that I learned!”

I always had something to talk about in all my weekly assignments for the class because of the valuable knowledge and experience I gained throughout the internship.”
Caroline started with iLS in January of 2021 and has since taken on a part time position on the team. She will continue her work on the team through her gradation from the University of Florida in May 2022. Caroline studies Advertising with a minor in Business Administration.
