A WELCOME NOTE FROM DEEPAK

OUR INTERN REVIEWS

Deepak Shukla and the Pearl Lemon team are the most unique company I've ever worked with. These people know exactly what to do and their strategies are on point. I've never worked with such a proactive team before and the experience was just so energizing. I hope to one day partner with them on long term projects for my business because I've been able to accomplish so much with them in such a short space of time. The level of productivity is unbelievable.

I interned for a short span of time at Pearl Lemon and Deepak was a fabulous mentor who guided me all along the way, simultaneously respecting my time priorities and freedom to get the tasks done. I got to work on things from YouTube SEO, Content Writing, Slideshare strategy, Instagram timeline strategy and much more. Deepak has a knack of giving direct feedback that are on point and he taps on the metrics which can be capitalized to give the organization an edge. I have seen his interactions with his clients and it is just amazing that how much he makes himself available for his clients which is admirable. His quality of staying professional, quick and directly involved makes things so much easier and effective. 100% recommended.

I’ve been working as an intern for Pearl Lemon and since the beginning April 2018 - I’ve been learning a lot about chrome plugins, mac applications and video based communication, focusing especially on tools that improve productivity. I am sure that the positive results from this experience will help me a lot in the future.

I definitely recommend working with and for Pearl Lemon!

I have been working at Pearl Lemon full-time for less than a year

Pros:
Engaging, modern, relatable leadership that always finds time for good communication with the entire team. The modern structure allows for easy collaboration and truly is a breading ground of resources and tools to learn from and about. Their desire to achieve and execute concrete ideas is contagious and has rubbed off on me in a very positive way. Work life balance and ability to work remote.

Cons:
I have not yet found any cons.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

INTERNSHIP PROGRAM FAQS

For sure. 6 months is plenty of time to learn a great deal with full-stack marketing and SEO. Pearl Lemon prides itself in a “trial by fire” approach, so there is exponential learning that continues through the entirety of the programme.

It very well can. We like to be sure that you can support yourself as an intern, but renewing an internship allows for additional experience to be gained, bump up to leadership roles, and have the potential to come on board as a core team member. It all depends how much you want to continue to learn.

Being with a start-up long term is an intense, fun, and unique experience. There is a dynamic and level of learning hard to meet in any other environment. Being fully remote and watching a buisness change, grow, and evolve rather quickly is something hard to observe in most other places.

Definitely! You can manage 100% of your time and have the possibility to attend school, courses, have other jobs, and so on as long as you can guarantee at least 20 hours of work per week.

As soon as you join Pearl Lemon, you will have access to courses both general that all interns go through and specific to your job role. After that, you will learn a lot in the field.

After the 6-month internship program, there are three possible outcomes:
1) you will have recommendations, reference, and new skills;
2) your internship is renewed;
3) you are offered a full-time position.

All our interns are based all over the world, therefore paying in USD makes the pay equal to everyone.

Sure! The Pearl Lemon brand includes a great variety of businesses which allows all interns to be involved in many different tasks. You will learn every day and we are happy to have you work on different projects if you wish.

Never. During your internship program, you will always be able to decide when to work during the day (or night!). We only require you to reply to messages between 9 am and 6 pm of your timezone.

When you first start working at Pearl Lemon, you will be introduced to a person in the team who will explain to you what to work on and how. Once you join the official team, anyone can help you with resources we already have stored or we’ll create new ones for you.

You’ll need access to either a PC or a laptop with a fairly decent graphics card and storage, as well as a smartphone. G-suite is used for all aspects of work, so you also need a reliable internet connection and phone data plan. Webcam, headphones and mic are also essential. Our meetings are exclusively digital and you’ll want to ensure your teammates can hear you!

You will primarily be taught how to use new tools and software by other higher ups,Deepak and other interns. One of the primary tools we use for tutorials is Loom, an online video recording tool that has the feature of sharing your screen, so you will be asked to download and get to grips with it early on in the trial. Written tutorials and manuals also exist that you will be redirected to both during the initial trial process and when you start as part of the team. If unsure about how to proceed with new software or tools just ask- someone will be able to redirect you to the information you need.

FOR CONTENT WRITERS

This is entirely based on personal preference, luckily with Pearl Lemon there is a range of topics to choose from but most internal blogs will revolve around marketing, sales and property. Depending on the clients, you may find yourself writing up on some unusual products to sell.

We recommend having a basic understanding of SEO, lead generation, property investing, conversion and sales will be really useful. Go through the Pearl Lemon sites to get an idea of what each part of the company does. And also look into link building strategies to get backlinks to content.

Be prepared to learn alot of new information and put in alot of hours. Figure out the best structure to your own day and be sure to factor in breaks from your screen.
A genuine love for writing is of course necessary, working fast and the ability to focus.
Be prepared for everything out in the open, getting constructive criticism from team mates.

Yes, aim for 10k words per week.

It is 10k words accumulated across all forms of content and blogs across all of the websites.

If they fall within the larger categories of the different Pearl Lemon websites then yes, you can be creative with your topics! You can find new takes and angles on old topics or come up with new ones. You can also be creative with your formatting, voice, tone, add jokes, etc. Guest and client posts offer opportunities to write about topics outside of Pearl Lemons’s main sites as well. And Dee is always expanding the brand, so you never know exactly what you could be writing about!

For all internal blog posts, yes. Definitely use images. There is no limit or minimum, but spread them out at least every couple hundred words so they break up the text to make it more easily digested. Look through the content on our sites to get an idea of how many images we use per post and how we spread them out.

In a remote team, it’s easier and quicker to record videos of our screens to explain how we are working on a task or to teach how to do something specific. We often ask interns to show us what they are doing and how while recording their screens. To do this we use loom.com. These loom videos are straightforward to use and share and give the possibility to leave comments directly under the video.
