CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Feb. 1, 2024 -- EF Ultimate Break a leader in guided, experiential travel for adults 18-35, today announced that it was launching a market-leading, professional development initiative called "Ultimate Internship" for three lucky applicants interested in filling one opening during each Summer, Fall, or Spring semesters through 2025.

Following the launch of EF Ultimate Break's college Campus Ambassador program in 2023, the Ultimate Internship takes the professional development aspects about content, social media and tourism marketing to another level of learning.

"We want to develop the next great generation of tourism marketing professionals by giving our Ultimate Interns exposure to our growing business, the expansive world we visit, and the diverse travelers we serve," said Heather Leisman, President, EF Ultimate Break. "Our Ultimate Internship will be a semester-long boot camp, training participants in the skills required to develop compelling content that reaches the next generation of world travelers. Additionally, our interns will gain hands-on experience on how our guided, immersive tours are redefining the tourism industry, giving younger adults the ability to experience the world for less."

Responsibilities of the Ultimate Intern will include:

  • Working with in-house marketing professionals to develop travel-inspiring social media content about our experiential tours, driving traveler engagement and intent (e.g. Instagram stories, Reels, Pins, TikToks, etc.)
  • Studying, researching, and ensuring EF Ultimate Break is engaged in current digital, social and consumer trends to introduce our business to more travelers … all the while, learning about concepts like brand relevancy in action.
  • Concepting and actively pitching ideas for unique takes on cultural trends and original content.
  • Researching new potential influencer, content creator, and brand partnerships.
  • Working with our brand and campus ambassadors in a brand support role.
  • Assisting with community management across social channels

An important aspect of the program will be travel where the intern actually gets to experience an Ultimate Break tour. A European tour? Spring Break in Costa Rica? For this gig, travel will be an Ultimate Intern's reality.

This paid internship will include reimbursement for pre-approved business travel expenses.
