Valerie’s Internship Experience

Now that the spring internship is coming to an end, I am reflecting on all the skills I have learned and the connections that I’ve made while interning for the company. Before this internship, I knew very little about SEO and did not have any formal experience with writing outside of academics. Learning about the utilization of SEO has been fascinating to me, especially how much it can increase traffic and benefit a blog/company.

How Did Valerie Contribute?

Writing blogs and doing research for Ecolink has also been very exciting, mostly because of my interest in chemistry and sustainable chemicals. I immediately knew I wanted to work for the company when I realized that they are prioritizing the manufacturing of chemicals that are progressive in terms of environmental harm and worker safety.

Valerie’s Internship Final Thoughts

This internship has provided me with valuable experiences and knowledge that I know I will utilize in my future career. I am very excited to continue the internship in the summer as well.

Zoe Laub Internship

Zoe’s Internship Experience

As an English major specializing in Creative Writing, I often faced judgment from peers and older adults in my life for not picking what they would call a more lucrative area of study. Although I respect teachers and have experience as a writing tutor, my passion has always been writing for an audience to further a mission. I knew from my past internship and my time spent writing for various topics and styles that writing copy would be an excellent position for me, despite the doubt presented by outside parties.

Ecolink’s remote structure and friendly, accommodating team made the experience even better; we even received an email from Brandon, the CEO, at the start of our internship letting us know to reach out whenever we’d like. Although I did not have experience in chemistry or the chemical industry, my internship with Ecolink solidified my opinion that writing copy will always be about research and execution.

What Zoe Learned

Within about two months, I simultaneously learned and wrote about:

  • Chemical regulations
  • Atomic structure
  • Various solvents and their uses
  • The History and Science of Extraction
  • Roof maintenance
  • Power washing chemicals and application
  • And much more

Our company leader, Carolyn, taught us so many lessons on SEO Writing, Google Analytics, WordPress, keyword research, product naming, and, most importantly, how to capture the attention of our readers. What people want most when they search the internet are answers, and why not work to ensure Ecolink clients can get information directly from their chemical supplier?

My favorite part of my internship was researching and writing about eco-friendly alternatives, both for chemicals and daily practices. My Earth Day blog, which focuses on riding public transportation in Los Angeles as a way to celebrate the Earth, was such an excellent opportunity for me to channel my passion for eco-friendly solutions and writing.

Zoe’s Internship Final Thoughts

Although only an intern, my experience with this company made me feel genuinely valued as a member of the Ecolink team. We even pitched ideas about how the company could celebrate Earth Day and received the company Earth Day T-shirts in the mail. If you’re wondering if you should apply for an internship position with Ecolink, I could not give you any answer other than an enthusiastic YES!

Ayanna Cooper Internship Experience

Ayanna’s Internship Experience

When I saw Ecolink posted as an Internship opportunity on LinkedIn I knew I had to apply. While I have several internships under my belt, I was beyond excited to take on one where I could learn about SEO. I did not have any sort of chemistry background but as a risk-taker and a Writing major, I was intrigued. While I was unfamiliar with the company at first, I was impressed by the innovation and progressiveness they convey on social media.

How did you get out of your comfort zone?

Although I am a Writing major I had never written any SEO content nor have I had the opportunity to write so many blogs on topics I was unfamiliar with for a brand outside of my field. I believe one of the best parts of this internship was improving my research skills and being able to see the benefits of SEO and Digital marketing in real-time. Do I know a little bit about solvents, how to make edible oils, and how to get content ranked on Google? Of course, I do!

Ecolink’s internship has been one of my favorites and if I could go back and do it again, I would. This opportunity was not only flexible but accommodating as well. The amount of support was very appreciated. The Ecolink team could be reached at any time which was always very reassuring.

Ayanna’s Takeaways from the Internship

During my time with Ecolink I was able to do the following and more:

  • Structure engaging content and create various CTA for Ecolink and their branded sites
  • Learn how to avoid duplicates/repetitiveness in text
  • Create unique product names and keywords
  • Analyze and utilize GA (Google Analytics)
  • Research chemical topics and chemicals I was unfamiliar with

Ayanna’s Final Thoughts

There are truly not enough words I could provide to extend my sincere thanks to the Ecolink team for this opportunity. As someone who is about to graduate in just a few short weeks, my interest in UX and SEO has grown tremendously and this experience has aligned with that perfectly. I am beyond thankful that I was able to be a part of this internship experience before my Undergraduate career ends. I am honestly sad that this internship has to conclude. It has been such an insightful journey and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I can not wait to apply all I’ve learned here throughout my career journey! I’d recommend anyone who has a love for writing, and chemistry or simply wants to try something new to apply for this internship when it’s offered in the Spring or Summer.

Alyssa’s Internship Experience

When I applied for an internship with Ecolink, it was 1 of the 40 internships I had applied for. By the end of my application process for all those companies, I lost sight of what most of them did, so when I received the offer to join the Ecolink team as an intern, I was not sure what the job entailed. Working as an intern for Ecolink turned out to be much more interesting and valuable than I expected.

Once I researched what the company did, I remembered why I had applied. As a chemical engineering major, I knew I could bring in my knowledge of chemicals and their properties and technical writing background through past internship experience to be a great addition to the team. I was also interested in learning more about how Ecolink worked and how they promoted their chemicals to their customers.

Ecolink taught me about several topics that not only helped me provide great work but are also a useful tool to carry with me as I journey through my career. Some of those topics include:

  • Search Engine Optimization
  • Keyword Research
  • Writing blogs using keywords while providing useful information for customers
  • Writing Product Pages
  • Creating Product Guides

The project that impacted me the most was the product guides. The product guides provided a different challenge than writing blogs. I had the opportunity to go through all the chemicals available through,, and and make a guide for the customers to view all the chemicals at once to determine which chemicals can complete the tasks that needed to be done. After many hours of work, the final document was extremely satisfying because it included all the information to help customers and also looked aesthetically pleasing.

Overall, the entire experience I had working with Ecolink was incredible. The supervisors were readily available to answer questions and willing to help with any issues that came about. I wish the group of interns were able to interact a little more than we did but with many of us being college students, our schedules did not allow for much free time to socialize. I am thankful to have learned many skills from working with a team like this one and I can’t wait to see what Ecolink and all the upcoming interns produce in the future!

Sydney’s Internship Experience

The Ecolink internship gave me valuable life and career experience and ended up exceeding all of my expectations. Not only did I learn new skills, but had the opportunity to nurture preexisting ones. My two points of contact during the Ecolink internship were easily accessible and always responded to my questions in a timely manner. Even though I didn’t have much interest in the chemical industry, I found myself proud to be working for a company whose sustainable beliefs aligned with my own. It made every blog post I wrote feel purposeful and enjoyable when I knew that I was helping the company achieve its dream of a greener future. 

I participated in Ecolink’s summer 2021 internship, which was fully remote. It gave me the flexibility to work when I wanted, where I wanted, and how much I wanted. I chose to work between thirty to forty hours a week and ended up writing over one hundred blog posts. I appreciated how flexible and consistent the workload was, which was especially nice during the summer when my course load isn’t as heavy. 

What I Learned 

As an English technical communication major, I was excited to have the opportunity to write blog posts and help create other creative content for Ecolink. With the assistance of the internship directors, I learned how to utilize SEO to make what I was writing stand out on Google and other search engines. I also learned how to…  

  • Conduct keyword research 
  • Use meta tags and descriptions 
  • Optimize my writing for Google 
  • Use Google analytics 
  • Find chemical suppliers and manufacturers 
  • Create engaging product names 
  • Structure blog posts 

My favorite part about the internship was how much free rein I had to write creative and intriguing content that otherwise may not have seemed as such. I wrote about everything from gutter cleaning to cannabis extraction. It was a challenge at times, but it made me look at these topics from a unique perspective in order to create blog posts with engaging content. This not only made me a better technical writer but gave me more knowledge on relevant scientific topics I might not have learned without this internship.  


Since the Ecolink internship was remote, all of our communication was done virtually. Whether it was messages or video meetings, I always felt like I could reach out at any time and receive an answer back quickly. The only area of the “remoteness” that I would’ve changed was consistently meeting on video chat more often to go over our submitted blog posts and receive extra feedback on our keywords and SEO. Regardless, the sessions that we did have were informative and constructive.  

Main Take Away 

During my time with Ecolink, I felt like a valued employee. Carolyn and Hannah were supportive and appreciative of all the work we interns did for the company. It made me feel like what I wrote had a purpose. Since learning more about SEO, I’ve found myself gravitating towards digital marketing and content creation, and hope to utilize the skills I’ve picked up here with me in any future jobs I have.  

If anyone is looking to get paid to write quality content, have a great support system, a flexible schedule, and learn something new, then apply to this internship.
