Pursuing a career in Product Management, post-graduation? Interested in changing the world through business, research, and product strategy, but not sure how?

The 2023 EBSCO Product Management Internship is a cross-discipline experience for college students who want to learn to change the world as B2B Product Managers in a large company.

EBSCO PM interns embody the future of Product Management, leading from a place of humility, intellectual integrity, and a deep sense of mission to improve the lives of the millions of researchers & patrons using our library database & information technology products.

 

As a PM intern, you will be held to high standards – you will be expected to learn the skills to become strategic thinkers, artful communicators, scientific researchers, and servant leaders.

As a PM intern, we want you to ask thoughtful questions, think about the bigger picture, and proactively build bridges to learn from colleagues, customers, and industry stakeholders.

As a PM intern, you get to be a first-class citizen in the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) organization, a high growth business unit that is responsible for building a world-class research platform and supporting several other business units across the company.

 

As a PM intern, you will cultivate deep curiosity, with a significant capacity for learning. Creativity will help you, but only if you can structure and organize your insights and learn to work effectively both independently, running your own workstreams, and collaboratively, as part of a larger team of mission-driven product managers & technologists.  

As a PM intern, you should speak the truth boldly & respectfully. We invite you to cultivate new sources of data and challenge you to balance data ambiguity with clarity. You should seek to understand the “Why” for key business decisions and be courageous in asking hard questions about the future of our products, teams, and culture. When you get the opportunity to pursue new ideas, you will take a scientific approach to building hypotheses, gathering data, and partnering with others to test, validate, and pivot based on what you learn.

 

What you’ll do

  • As a new member of the Product Management team, you will actively learn from full-time Product Managers - how they gather data, write requirements, create designs, make informed decisions, and ship products that solve customer & user problems in our industry. 
  • As a PM intern, your cross-functional work will vary based on interest & skillset, and may include: market analysis, competitive intelligence, product analytics, user research, design thinking, product specifications & requirements, and product strategy vision work.
  • You will report to the Senior Product Manager in Software as a Service, and may have the opportunity to present work directly (‘2023 Final Presentation’) to Directors, VPs, and SVPs in PM and other departments across the company including Technology, UX Research & Design, Corporate Strategy, Sales, Finance, Marketing, CustSat, and more
  • You will own high impact business initiatives and collaborate with others in PM on cross-functional projects across the discovery & delivery lifecycle (per business opportunity).
  • You will help EBSCO re-imagine the future. When you see opportunities for growth and improvement, you may have the opportunity to help EBSCO explore these new areas.
