    Well, isn’t this just another example of a company trying to buy their way into the good graces of students? Offering a scholarship and internship opportunity may seem generous, but let’s be real here – it’s just a ploy to get cheap labor. And don’t even get me started on the eligibility criteria. So, you only want students who are interested in SEO and internet marketing? What about those who may have a different passion or skill set? And why the age limit of 18? Are you saying that someone who is 17 and excels in marketing or design wouldn’t be a good fit for your scholarship? It’s clear that this opportunity is not as open and inclusive as it claims to be. As someone who has owned a search marketing agency before, I know the importance of critical thinking and creativity in this field. But let’s not pretend that these qualities are only found in students who are interested in SEO and internet marketing. I’m sure there are plenty of students out there who may not have a working understanding of computers or websites, but possess the skills and potential to excel in this industry. It’s time for companies like Gorilla Marketing to broaden their horizons and truly support students from all backgrounds and interests.
