2. When should I apply?

Visit our careers page to find out more about our open positions and job descriptions.
4. Do you offer internships?
You bet. Our intern positions are perfect for underclassmen looking to break into the Internet marketing industry.
5. How do I know which opportunity to apply to? There are so many to choose from!
A great place to start is by thinking about your experience level. Are you an upcoming or recent college grad looking for your first full-time job in this field?
Then you might want to pick a role with “Jr” in the title – these are entry-level roles that include all the training needed to get your career kickstarted. If you’ve got a few years of relevant full-time experience under your belt, on the other hand, you might look at our non-Jr openings.
We also invite you to browse through the job responsibilities section of each job description, and ask yourself if this sounds like work you’d be interested in doing! If so, then we say go for it – we’d love to see you apply for that role!
6. Can I apply for more than one job posting?
You can, but there’s usually no need to! In reviewing your resume and chatting with you over a potential interview process, we always keep an open mind about which position you might be the best fit for. If you applied to one position, but we think you might be a better match in a different position, we’ll tell you!
So feel free to just pick your top choice to apply to, and then we’ll chat about any potential other fits over the course of the interview process!
7. I didn’t major in marketing or related field – can I still apply anyway? Does my major disqualify me?
Here at WebFX, nobody’s major disqualifies them! While it’s true that a lot of our FXers majored in marketing and advertising, we also have FXers who majored in finance, history, economics, music education, mathematics, and many more.
If you’ve discovered a passion for marketing, then we want to hear from you, no matter what you majored in!
8. I’m still in my senior year of college – how early can I apply?
We like to get things started early! We typically begin chatting with our first early-bird candidates about open Jr-level roles as early as the summer leading up to your senior year. If we end up extending a job offer to you before graduation, you would carry on and finish your senior year as planned – we would plan a start date for some time after your graduation!
9. I’m not a college senior yet – is there anyway I can start to get involved now?
There are a few ways you can get involved here in the US! We’d love to host you at our bi-annual open house event, WebFX-U, an event designed to give current students a glimpse into what it’s like to work at an agency like WebFX.
You’re also invited to check out the various internship opportunities on our careers page! These internships tend to be pretty competitive, but it’s always worth putting an application in – even if we aren’t able to offer you the internship, it still gets your name and information on our team’s radar so that we can stay in touch with you about potential future opportunities!
10. Do you have any open opportunities in my area of expertise?
The careers page on our website will always have our most up-to-date list of current openings, so feel free to visit this page to take a look and see if there’s anything that might suit you!
11. Why do you have so many positions open?
It’s an exciting time for WebFX, as we’ve been experiencing a lot of growth over the past few years – this means lots of new job opportunities as the team continue to expand. These job opportunities we’re hiring for are a result of all that growth!
12. Does WebFX offer opportunities for remote work?
If you’re based in the US, Guatemala or South Africa, your position would start out in-person at one of our office hubs. We focus a lot on training, mentorship, and learning from the people around you, and we want to help you build a solid foundation for your career by giving you that quality training time surrounded by your team. As you grow and advance in your career, however, the potential to transition into hybrid or remote work opens up.
If you’re based in another country, feel free to visit our careers page to see what remote opportunities we may have open at this time!
13. If I’m hired for a remote international role, will you provide equipment for me?
Yes, we’ll work with you to ensure you have the required equipment.
14. I just applied! What happens next, and how long until I hear back?
Thanks for applying! Our team reviews every application we receive in the order it was received, so we’ll look forward to reviewing yours as well.
If the team decides they’d love to offer you an interview, they will follow up with you over email within ~1 month of receiving your application. If you don’t hear back within this time, you’re always welcome to reapply, especially if you’ve continued to grow your resume since your previous application.
15. Do I need to follow up to let you know I applied?
You’re welcome to follow up if you have a question not answered here, or if you have extra, new information to share with us! But otherwise, there’s usually no need. We review every application we receive, so never fear – we’ll look forward to reviewing yours as well!
16. I applied to WebFX a little while ago, and never heard back – can I apply again?
We always welcome re-applications! We also do keep all applications on file for at least ~6 months after you apply, meaning that even if we didn’t contact you for an interview right away, there is always a chance we may contact you in the following months if a new position opens up that we think you might be a good fit for. But if it’s been longer than 6 months and you did not hear from us, you are absolutely welcome to reapply.
17. Is there anything I can do to make my application stand out? How can I improve my chances of being landed an interview?
Take a close look through the job description of the position(s) that interests you! We always list a few of the qualifications and skills we’re looking for, and these are the types of things we’ll be hoping to see on resumes and CVs. If those are qualifications and skills you have, make sure to include them on your resume where they’ll catch our eye!
18. What’s the interview process like?
Our interview process consists of several steps, including:
- Online application
- Phone interview
- Written interview
- Office tour and face-to-face interview
- Executive team interview and shadowing
For more info and a step-by-step overview, check out our hiring process.
19. Can I interview via Google Meet or Zoom?
Yes! We offer a Google Meet or Zoom for interview candidates for a first in-person interview only (not a second) if you have a long distance to travel.
20. What skills do I need to apply?
Skills like blogging, HTML, CSS, and Google Analytics are all great to include on your application! But if you don’t have those skills, don’t worry. We have an awesome bootcamp training program to teach hard skills necessary for FXers to be happy and successful in their positions.
21. What kind of training does WebFX offer?
Every new FXer goes through our ‘Bootcamp’ program – that’s our training program that’s designed to teach you the foundational skills needed to succeed in your specific position. Any prior knowledge that you bring to the table is awesome, but don’t panic about any skills you don’t have yet. Nobody knows it all when they’re starting a new job, and we don’t expect you to either!
We start at the beginning, and will help bring you up to speed in the areas that are unfamiliar to you.
22. Can you tell me more about the interview process?
Absolutely! For US candidates, feel free to check out this page for a full rundown of what to expect from our interview process.
For international candidates, our interview process can vary from position to position, but typically involves at least 2 interviews with our hiring team!
23. Can you tell me more about the WebFX culture?
24. Who can I ask if I still have more questions?
You can always reach out to [email protected] with any further questions about your application, and we’d be happy to help!
25. What’s the best part of working at WebFX?
Glad you asked. Get the 411 straight from three of our very own FXers!
Peter Connors – Internet Marketing Specialist
“My favorite part of working at WebFX is the relationships that we build with our clients. Hearing from our clients how the work we are doing is impacting their business positively is one of the most rewarding experiences.”
Jess Bonacci – Digital Video Specialist
“I love the family environment.
Everyone is rooting for you and will do anything they can to help you succeed. There’s such a welcoming and supportive culture here, and I wouldn’t change a thing!”
Rendell Weaver – Internet Marketing Specialist
“The training and mentorship are incredible at WebFX. Everyone empowers each other to excel and work towards clear goals.”
Brianna Shay – Web Project Manager
“The best part about working at WebFX is definitely the healthy work environment.
The people that I work with truly care about each other (inside and outside of work), as much as we care for our clients. Each day I come into work I am inspired, motivated, and encouraged by such amazing people that I have the privilege of calling my friends. “
Nicole Kurish – Senior Web Designer
“My favorite part about working at WebFX is that my career path and responsibilities were designed toward my interests. WebFX leadership understands that everyone is different and allows us to thrive at what we love and do best!”
Madison Leach – Web Strategist
“Hands down, the culture!
Every employee is engaged and passionate about their work, all while being willing to lend a helping hand to ensure the success of our clients’ strategies. Your team and your coach truly want to see you succeed, and will assist you in whatever way needed to make that possible. The flexible scheduling, office perks, and benefits also demonstrate that WebFX not only cares about its clients, but its employees as well!”
Lexi Persad – Copywriting Project Manager
“I love the people I work with!
Everyone is so supportive and friendly, both inside and outside of work, which was extremely comforting since I moved here from out of the area. It really helped Harrisburg and WebFX feel like home.”
26. What does it take to be a successful FXer?
Peter: “To be a successful FXer, you have to be able to adapt to a constantly changing environment. Our industry is continually changing, and ongoing learning is such an important part of staying up to date. Learning is our passion, and we are always looking for ways to improve ourselves and our work.”
Jess: “I think being a successful FXer means you’re always looking for a way to challenge yourself.
Even though you might be nervous to try something new, you do it anyway because that’s how you grow as a marketer and as a person. It’s so important to never stop learning.”
Rendell: “Living out our POSITIVE code! My personal favorite value from this acronym is ’embracing change, leading with solutions, and making the most of every opportunity,’ because there are so many opportunities to learn, grow, and become a better person at WebFX.”
Brianna: “What I believe it takes to be a successful FXer is to always be searching for ways to learn + grow in your profession.
As much as we work together, our careers are driven individually and it is such a rewarding feeling to see the growth that you’ve personally made over time that ultimately impacts your team + clients in a positive way.”
Nicole: “It takes an eagerness to learn and be comfortable with the unknown!”
Madison: “Be passionate and inquisitive! Taking the initiative to problem-solve and dive into knowledge-based resources on your own will help not only sharpen your skills, but also increase innovation amongst your work and your team ”
Lexi: “Learn to get comfortable being uncomfortable. When you start a new role, there are so many situations where the answer might be unclear, but taking the opportunity to think through things on your own is when you really grow!
As a Copy Project Manager, there’s not always a “right” answer when coaching a team, but learning how to navigate these situations on my own has really increased my confidence.”
27. What’s the best piece of advice for applicants?
Peter: “Stay up to date by following a few industry blogs and read articles about the world of digital marketing. Google offers a variety of useful courses for free online, which serve as a great starting point for someone interested in this field. Most importantly, be open to new experiences and learning new things.”
Jess: “I would say just do it.
Don’t let your fear or your nerves talk you out of going for an amazing opportunity. Everyone brings a set of unique skills to the table, and you can, too.”
Rendell: “Learn as much as you can about Internet marketing through industry blogs, books, and experimentation. Digging into the industry is going to give you some excellent exposure to build on and help you gauge your interest level in the industry.”
Brianna: “You are not expected to be perfect!”
Nicole: “Be true to yourself and embrace your uniqueness.
And remember, you can learn, do, and be anything if you’re dedicated to it!”
Madison: “Be yourself! We love to see the unique qualities and strengths you can bring to the table, and what is it about WebFX that makes you want to join us!”
Lexi: “Be honest about your weaknesses — everyone has them, and it’s okay! Having the ability to identify areas you could improve is what will make the biggest difference in your career development and show TA that you’re open to feedback.”

What to read next
What did current FXers major in?
The answers might surprise you!
Current Title: Web Strategy Consultant
Started As: Jr. Internet Marketing Specialist
College Major: Finance
Coming out of school, I thought I would be a financial analyst or an advisor of sorts, and little did I know, I found that at WebFX.
I have the opportunity each and every day to analyze businesses to evaluate how we can find a budget for marketing initiatives and work to understand cost-per-acquisition, margins on different services, and ultimately, ROI.
So many businesses need a consultant, and our expertise does not have to stop at SEO.
We work to help the business grow as a whole, and using my finance background to help analyze opportunities that turn into sales and dollars for the client is so rewarding. At the end of the day, marketing is useless if it does not add to the bottom line, and it is my job to help clients see that.
Current Title: Internet Marketing Strategy Coach
Started as: Internet Marketing Intern > Jr.
Internet Marketing Specialist – Account Strategist
College Major: Economics
I majored in economics and immediately found a ton of overlap with the skills I learned during my time in college and the skills I’ve leveraged in my career as an internet marketer.
When it comes down to it, economics is really the study of decision-making, and as an internet marketer, it’s my job to understand *why* users make decisions and *how* they reach those decisions. With this comes the opportunity to look at raw data, spot trends, and draw insights accordingly.
I’m then able to make concrete and data-backed recommendations to optimize client campaigns and drive results.
Trend spotting and analyzing data were some of my favorite aspects of economics, and I’m so thankful it has become a large part of my day-to-day as an internet marketer!
Current Title: Internet Marketing Specialist – Account Strategist
Started As: Jr. Internet Marketing Specialist – Account Strategist
College Major: Applied Mathematics and Economics
In college, I majored in applied mathematics and economics.
With that combination, I focused my elective studies on data analysis, mathematical and economic modeling, and probability and statistics. Now at WebFX, I’m an account strategist on the internet marketing team.
The most applicable hard skills my majors gave me were advanced Excel skills and programming experience. I use pivot tables and advanced formulas almost every day, and knowing even some basic programming gives you a great framework and foundation for learning HTML & CSS quickly, since you’ll be familiar with how similar languages are structured.
However, more than any particular concrete skills, I think my majors really helped me develop integral soft skills that I use all the time in my job today.
Math and economics are all about critical thinking and cause and effect, both of which are essential for directing marketing strategies.
Current Title: Internet Marketing Consultant
Started as: Jr. Internet Marketing Specialist
College Major: Finance
My major in college was Finance, and now I am an Internet Marketing Account Manager at WebFX. I majored in Finance in college because I was good at working with numbers, and I was passionate about helping people and businesses succeed.
As an Internet Marketing Account Manager, I get to do just that. In my role, I get to analyze a lot of data, and the thrilling challenge is to turn that data into insights and actions that move the needle for our clients.
There are many transferable skills from being a Finance major to now being an Internet Marketing Account Manager. Finance majors understand the fundamentals of business, are used to looking at historical data on charts and graphs, and have a knack for Microsoft Excel and Google Sheets.
I have found my experience as a Finance major has prepared me extremely well to succeed in my role, as I am able to understand the role digital marketing has in a business and the ultimate goal and mission of the business as well.
Current Title: Internet Marketing Strategy Coach
Started as: Jr. Internet Marketing Specialist – Account Strategist
College Major: English
WebFX is an amazing company because it has a place for everyone regardless of their major. I was an English major in college, so when I was looking for jobs, I was searching for ones that primarily involve some sort of copywriting.
I learned very quickly after completing the interview process and starting to work here that my skills as an English Major were transferable to any job, especially the one that I have as an Internet Marketer.
Every day I utilize the skills from my major in unique ways, from writing up client emails that help describe the value of the work that we’re doing to developing content topics and strategies for clients’ blogs. It’s amazing all the big and small ways that my background as an English major comes into play. I truly believe the most valuable skill that I gained from college was confidence, and that’s applicable to any position that’s offered at WebFX.
Current Title: Social Media Specialist
Started As: Jr. Social Media Specialist
College Major: English – Specialization in Journalism & Public Relations
My name is Raeann Walquist, and I am a 2020 graduate of Lebanon Valley College, where I majored in English with a specialization in Journalism and Public Relations.
While I never envisioned myself working in digital marketing or advertising, I could not have asked for a better experience.
One thing I love about WebFX is that they teach you everything you need to know about marketing. All you have to do is be willing to learn and open to doing things that push you out of your comfort zone.
I also love that I get to build on the skills that I learned in my undergrad years.
As an English major, most courses focused on reading, writing and in-depth analysis. Even though I didn’t major in marketing or business, I gained valuable skills like critical thinking, communication, public speaking and professionalism that have helped me excel in my position and drive results for my clients.
Current Title: Distributed Operations Lead
Started as: Jr.
Earned Media Specialist
College Major: Economics and English
I double majored in Economics and English. I didn’t expect my degree to map directly onto a future career, so I was surprised at how helpful and relevant my studies were when I joined the Earned Media & Copy department at WebFX! Honing my writing, editing and critical thinking skills throughout college helped me quickly learn new information and tackle content marketing projects for our clients with precision.
Furthermore, I took a few classes in digital humanities for my major, where I learned how to set up WordPress sites, publish blog content, and format copy in HTML.
These are skills I use every single day at my job, so my education helped me jump right into my role!
Overall, I always loved writing & editing in college, and I’m so glad I get to use these skills in the digital marketing industry – and I get to run WebFX’s book club, too, so talking literature is still a big part of my life!
Current Title: Director of Results Enablement
Started as: Jr. Internet Marketing Specialist
College Major:English Literature
My major was English Lit! I didn’t minor in anything, but took a lot of philosophy classes.
One day, out of desperation, I searched “job ideas for humanities majors.” I landed on a blog post that was written by someone who was a PhD candidate in literature, but discovered SEO and left the PhD program to pursue a career in SEO.
They talked about how it was part working on websites, part business strategy, and I thought it sounded fascinating!
I searched “What is SEO” and started learning, and was really excited by the idea that you could work on a website to help it get more visibility and revenue. So I searched “SEO jobs near York, PA”, which is where I lived at the time. I found a Monster.com listing for a Jr. Internet Marketing Specialist position at WebFX and applied to interview and got the job!
The main thing that I feel my college education helped with was really hammering critical thinking — not just accepting something for what it is, but wanting to understand why something functions the way it does, the underlying layers, and how that can change based on other factors.
