Marketing and Sales Internship at Mid-America Tile (Chicago, IL)

Mid-America Tile is looking for a qualified intern to join our marketing/sales team. Our marketing/sales department produces and provides quality marketing collateral, special events, product samples, and promotions for our customers. Internships are available on a rolling basis, including summer opportunities.

If you’re the right fit for our team, you are intrinsically motivated/a self-starter and eager to work in a fast-paced, collaborative environment. You’re able to prioritize and re-prioritize as needed with competing demands, and you get energized about anything and everything “marketing.” Although this position is unpaid monetarily, your internship at Mid-America Tile will be filled with resume boosters and broad experience in various aspects of marketing and sales. The skills you utilize here will translate to any professional track you follow in the future.


  • Play a key role in the creation and launch of a redesigned website
  • Design signage, mock-ups, e-campaigns, social media content, promotions, etc.
  • Assist with fulfillment of marketing/sales requests and tracking
  • Contribute to the execution of special events
  • Analyze of marketing/sales data, offer insight and support to future strategy
  • Maintain CRM and contact management systems as needed


You must have excellent verbal and written communication skills, extensive knowledge of website development, content management systems, and social media, including Facebook, Google+, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and YouTube. Microsoft Office/Acrobat experience is also required, but Photoshop, Vimeo, Houzz, video editing, and robust database skills are a much-appreciated bonus. You will be based in our office in Elk Grove Village, but some travel will be required. Ideally, you’ll have reliable transportation. However, we’re located close to the bus – and there’s always Uber. Hours can be flexible, but we’re hoping you’ll join us full-time M-F. We’re willing to make schedule adjustments for the right candidate.
