“I started an internship with CareerPlug after I graduated. What was suppose to be a semester-long internship turned into my first full-time job within two months. CareerPlug continues to provide me with the skills and opportunities to grow professionally and to exceed my own expectations in the business world. I feel so lucky to be working with such a diverse, intelligent, and compassionate group of people. ” – Sarah Haby
“CareerPlug is a great example of what every company should be like. While many companies believe that employees work for them, CareerPlug is the only company I know that genuinely works for its employees. Leadership makes a point to develop everyone both personally and professionally. Not only have I seen myself grow tremendously, but I’ve also seen it with every new face that walks through our door. After 5 years, the team at CareerPlug has never ceased to amaze me. I wouldn’t have it any other way!”
– Walter McCone
CareerPlug is dedicated to Giving Back not only to our clients but to our employees and to our community. Our donation-matching program is one of our favorite employee benefits, with team members frequently donating to local and national causes. In 2014 our employees formed a Give Back Committee to further organize opportunities to give back to the community, including volunteer events with Hands on Housing and an annual food drive to support Capital of Texas Food Bank.
In our partnership with Foster Angels of Central Texas we support their Toys for Teens program, where we purchase holiday gifts for foster teens whose wish-lists would otherwise go unfulfilled. Not only has it been a rewarding Giving Back experience each year, but an excellent team bonding event as we split up and go shopping for computers, clothes, and cowboy boots!
In 2015, CareerPlug also worked closely with Foster Angels to begin the CareerPlug Scholars Award – a $10,000 scholarship awarded to a former foster youth to help them continue their education. We have subsequently provided new scholarships in 2016 and 2017. As we grow the program we hope not only to provide more scholarships but to add resources and mentoring opportunities to set former foster youth up for long-term success. We work hard to ensure Give Back doesn’t just mean a couple of words on our office wall, but a value that permeates our everyday.

“I have been an intern with CareerPlug for about three years. Over the course of my time here, I’ve been able to acquire a vast amount of knowledge working in two departments, Sales/Marketing and currently, HR/Operations. I have been lucky enough to be part of such a great team that lives out their values on a daily basis and cares about my personal and professional growth.” – Justin Zuniga
Affectionately called our Intern Army, CareerPlug’s interns are truly the foundation of our company. Most employees began as interns when CareerPlug was in its infancy, and today the program has grown to include interns in nearly every department. CareerPlug interns make real, essential contributions to our everyday operations. From manning the frontlines of resume sourcing or market research, to running social media and answering client questions, we’re dedicated to providing interns with valuable (and paid!) experiences.
Account Management Internship
Account Management interns provide invaluable support to our two account management teams. Performing a variety of tasks from reporting and data analytics to client research and marketing, we give interns a front row view to how an account management team is run.
Recruiting Campaigns Internship
The most established of the intern programs, these interns run the first step of our recruitment campaigns business. Interns learn how to source and screen candidates, maintain a candidate database, and complete client research projects.
Sales interns take on a wide range of responsibilities from market research to lead management. These interns have the opportunity to work directly with the Director of Sales and the sales team to understand what goes into sales and marketing processes.
“CareerPlug is a great place for young professionals to grow. Working here is highly rewarding because everything you do, whether you are an intern or full time employee, contributes to the success of the company. They really care about your success and have intern meetings that help you create great resumes or projects to develop the skills you will need for the future.” – Melissa Espinosa
