Message from the CEO:
Congratulations! You’ve found what I’m very proud to call the best, paid marketing fast track apprenticeship in the U.S.A. This is a 100% paid employee remote working position.
We do have a strict residency requirement. You must currently, or plan to reside, in one of the following states for at least the first six months of your apprenticeship:
This is due to favorable business climates in these states so we can train you.
You enjoy the comfort, convenience, and no-hassle commute of working where you like. But make no mistake, this is a professional role.
You’ll need a quiet, distraction-free work space with a door you can shut, a desk for a blazing fast laptop workstation we’ll provide (and headset), and your own internet connection.
Working from home isn’t for everyone, but if you’re self-motivated and disciplined, this apprenticeship will give you the autonomy and hands-on training you need to be a highly paid marketing professional.
Upon your hire, you'll fly to our office in downtown San Diego - at our expense - to meet your team before you start training.
As a Vyral Marketing Apprentice, you'll start a very in-depth coaching and training plan to make sure you receive a full time job offer to earn $50,000 a year within 1 year.
This position is designed for someone who is on track to graduate from college, or a college graduate who is not happy with their current career path who will do the work to become a highly paid marketing professional.
You’ll train daily via Skype directly with our head of sales Sara Woodrich every morning from 8am-9am PST and myself for marketing training every Thursday from 9am-12pm PST to get the skills and mindset necessary to help professional service providers get customers and clients.
You must be available at these set times for training, which is done as a small group over a video conference. The rest of your hours are flexible.
Please only apply if you can make these training times short of any vacation time, which we can record the training for you if you can't make it.
Meet your sales instructor Sara Woodrich
Meet your marketing instructor Scott Sillari
We hire only the best at Vyral Marketing.
Don't worry - no marketing experience is necessary. We can teach you the skills.
You only need to be in college - or have completed - a 4-year degree in a marketing or business related field with a 3.0 or higher GPA with demonstrated leadership ability.
You must be able to work a minimum of 25 hours a week as you'll start part time. You will work with us over Skype as an integral team member.
This is a perfect position for someone who works a second job for temporary, supplemental income (or who attends school) in the evenings since required training/work hours are in the morning, to early afternoon, depending on your time zone.
You will transition to full time over the course of your apprenticeship based on performance, to ultimately earn $50,000 full time by the end of one year.
You will get a fair, in-depth, and respectful interview to share your accomplishments.
You will also get a call back from my assistant within 1 business day when you apply.
Trust me, I hated it as much as you do when I applied for positions and didn't get a call back. This is not one of those interview experiences.
Qualified applicants will be invited to a group Skype meeting with myself, Scott, and Sara to explain the position and to answer your questions, which after that you'll start the formal interview process.
If you want to apply, please apply using the "Apply Now" button on this page to receive the fastest call-back.
Look forward to meeting you!

"As an upcoming college graduate, I did what most do when the reality of graduation sets in. I began my career search. With a background in psychology I wanted to be able to use my knowledge of how we think and how things make us feel. My first thought was human resources. Then I dug a little deeper. I have always loved the idea of expressing creativity in my work. So, I narrowed my search to Marketing. After an exhaustive search, and finding very little that appealed to me that was local, I realized I was due for a change. After living in the New England area for most of my life I knew I wanted to be somewhere warm. California was always on my radar but never thought it would become a reality. When I stumbled upon Vyral, the job ad was an absolute dream. It was well thought out, clear, and concise. Unlike most internships it left very little to question. When I think of an internship, I think busy work, and having little organization. But Vyral was just the opposite, it had everything I was looking for; structure, flexibility, and growth. The ad gave a detailed syllabus as to what a new hire was to expect. I immediately applied. I was astonished when I received a reply within three hours of my submission. I then began the great excursion of the interview process. Much like the job ad this was anything but typical. Vyral used a variety of mediums. Such as, personality tests, a one-way video interview, one-on-one video chats, and finally an in-person dinner. Having a fair share of interview experience, I foolishly believed I would go through the same wave of nerves and be given little feedback on how the process was going. But it was quite the contrary. I was given feedback throughout the process and felt very comfortable talking to the team. One of the final steps was dinner with the CEO, VP of Business Development, a current intern, and a handful of applicants. I left feeling welcomed, and confident in my decision to make the trip. Given the extensive process I could tell they weren’t just looking for someone to fill a position, they were looking for a teammate and an addition to the San Diego family. After a little less than a month I was presented with an offer. Elated, I quickly accepted. I was flown out to meet the rest of the team and other hires that will be joining me on the adventure to self-growth and becoming a full time hire at Vyral Marketing on my third week of the program. While there I felt at home. Frank and Scott are enthusiastic, passionate and committed to helping their employees succeed. They are some of the most genuine people I have ever come across. I currently work remotely from home in Rhode Island. Although not a requirement for this program, I plan to move to San Diego as soon as possible. For anyone seeking growth, value, and autonomy in their everyday work, Vyral is the place for you."
"I learned about the apprenticeship with Vyral Marketing at one of SDSU’s many career fairs and I was immediately intrigued. After a short conversation about day to day activities I knew Vyral had exactly the position I had been looking for. I applied later that day and true to Vyral’s claim got a call the very next day. After the initial screening, I was invited to dinner at Frank’s home along with other applicants and though I thought the process was rather odd I quickly learned why Frank wanted to meet with us. Frank is an incredibly smart and honest person and that became clear within minutes of sitting down to dinner with him. Over the course of our meal he explained the ins and outs of the position with precise clarity and as he outlined the duties of the position I began to realize how much I could learn from him. I could tell that he had nothing but good intentions for his apprentices and that he wanted us to learn and grow within the company. Needless to say, when I was offered the position I was ecstatic and could not wait to start learning about using video, photography, and writing to market the excellent services and products of Vyral’s clients. It has been one week since I started at Vyral and I have already learned more from the amazing people that work here than I did from many of my classes. Moreover, Frank held a meeting for all the apprentices and explained his plan for us over the next year and beyond. He left nothing out, he explained how we made money, how the company made money, his vision for the company, his expectations for us, and how we would achieve Vyral’s goals together. By the time the meeting was over I could barely contain my excitement and I called my mom right away to tell her everything that was happening. If the past week is any indication of what’s to come, I expect I will be with Vyral Marketing for a long time. In the coming months, I hope to learn everything I haven’t throughout my college career and I have no doubt in my mind that I will be able to market products and services with brilliance by the time this apprenticeship is over."
"From the beginning I could tell that Vyral Marketing was the rare place you can expect the team to really push you to succeed and grow. I went to school for engineering then followed that career path for three years before realizing that the typical office environment was just not for me. I needed a company that cared about the success of its employees and provided the structure for growth. When I found the homepage for the Vyral Marketing Apprenticeship, the word “intrapreneurial” in the job description jumped out at me like a flashing neon sign. It was refreshing to see a company that not only wanted, but demanded this from it’s employees. After doing my research and getting to know Frank, I knew without a doubt that Vyral really wants people who are willing to grow the company into something great- not just people who are looking for a big paycheck. The interview process was extremely unique. I had one-way video interviews, participated in group meetings with the team and other candidates, took personality tests, and had one-on-one interviews that really made me think about my answers. They wanted to learn more about what motivated me and to see how I tackled problems to make sure I was the right fit. It was more in-depth than any interview I’ve ever experienced, but I’m glad I made it through. Once I was hired, Vyral flew me out to San Diego to meet Frank and the rest of the team. Here is where I realized the real power of Vyral Marketing. I could tell everyone cared about the company and wanted the people that they brought in to put as much work and care into it as they did. It shows because they are investing tremendous amounts of time and resources into properly training us. (Just take a look at the syllabus.) We met for the whole day in a beautiful AirBNB to discuss the long term vision for Vyral and the exact steps we could take to achieve both our own success and that of the company. On top of that, Frank drove home over and over again how important it is to always be upfront and honest about everything he does. This was so deeply genuine and this attitude permeates through everything the company does. Most people don’t have time to emphasize this, but Frank and the team go out of their way to make sure we are always functioning at the highest level. Seeing the way the whole team thought through every bit of minutia to make this the best possible work environment for the new hires is truly inspiring. The standards are high here but working with other such talented and driven people is what makes this opportunity completely one of a kind."
"When I left Romania and moved to US, I had to start everything from ground zero…I had no friends, no family, no job, or career. Even though I had a Master's degree in Marketing from a Romanian University, I couldn’t do anything with it here.
I was working in sales previously, so I started to apply for different sales jobs. Day after day I would wake up in the morning, go on different job sites and apply for different positions. I would submit 5 resumes a day…that was my goal…but I didn’t get any real feedback!
You can imagine how disappointed I was…until one day. I remember I got another one of those canned email from one company telling me I was not a fit for them. Instead of giving up, the very next moment I went on indeed.com and applied for another job. It was an inside sales position, but what caught my eye was the fact that they were looking for a future leader, entrepreneur, someone who was willing to learn and was interested in self-development! So, I applied!
In the next 5 minutes I got 2 emails, both from Frank Klesitz, CEO of Vyral Marketing. One was a “Thank you” email and the other one was a video with Scott Sillari…the guy who supposedly would call me the next day. I don’t know about you, but I thought it was a complete scam!
Luckily, it wasn’t! Scott indeed called me the following day and after a series of interviews, an assessment test, and an audition, I got the job!
I started as an outbound propector. My responsibilities included: reaching out to potential clients and prospects, listening and speaking with them on the phone about how we may be able to help them; going to industry related events and masterminds; doing quick demos over the phone; setting appointments for our senior consultant and so on. I learned how to communicate with business professionals and how to handle rejection, how to continuously stay positive and make sure that with every conversation I have I can deliver some helpful information to the person on the other line.
Now, I am about 2 months away from celebrating my 1 year anniversary at Vyral and if I would have to share with you ONE thing about working here that would be: GET READY TO LEARN A LOT!
Both Frank, the CEO and Scott, the VP of New Business are genuinely interested in teaching you everything they know and make sure you become very successful.
We meet with Frank every week for 3 hours and we learn about marketing, sales, communication, latest technology, online marketing, Facebook ads, Youtube ads, everyday business practices. Every time I meet with him I have an “a-ha” moment, I learn something new. He shares with us a lot of training material and he also puts together an internal library full of great books that you can check out and read. How awesome is that!?
Everyone here is very warm and welcoming and immediately you will feel like you are part of a big family!
Now, don’t think that everything is just milk and honey! If you live in reality, you know that's never going to happen. I had moments of frustration lots of times: sometimes maybe because one prospect promised that he will sign up tomorrow and he ended-up signing up after 2 months, or maybe because no one would answer the phone that day, or someone would be rude and hung up on me. With that, I learned to stay positive, move on and concentrate on what matters.
Vyral is a fast paced environment and sometimes there are a lot changes going on. We work in the digital marketing area and we need to keep up with all the updates in the industry. One week you may be told to implement one strategy, the next week you may be told to change your approach. At first, in this type of situations, I would be like “What the heck is going on now?” but in time I understood that change is good and every uncomfortable situation that you find yourself in, will help you grow!
So here are a few things to keep in mind if you want to succeed at Vyral, and not only here, but generally in life…
I am very excited for what’s coming next. Soon I will fully transition into the Marketing Program where I will work with partners from different industries. I will have the chance to apply everything I learned so far and more importantly, help these partners grow their business.
I am very grateful for this opportunity and for being surrounded with smart people...you know what they say...you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with, so make it count!"
Getting Paid to Learn.
My experience at Vyral Marketing
I can’t believe it’s already been 6 months at Vyral Marketing and the Apprenticeship is about to be over. I’m days away from transitioning into my 50k Salary and just thinking about all the learning, knowledge and training that was retained in such a short amount of time is astonishing.
I remember being handed our syllabus and feeling so overwhelmed that I wasn’t going to make it through – fueled with self-doubt, hesitation and the feeling of not having what it took to reach that finish line.
I’d be lying if I said there weren’t some days I thought about walking away and throwing in the towel because of the stress, amount of work and the constant battle with communication and learning how pivotal it really is to not only create that relationship with your client, but to keep that relationship strong each and every day.
We work remote – so people automatically assume that there is no company culture within Vyral. However, I’ve never felt so close to my piers to the point of which I consider them family.
My CEO, Frank Klesitz and my VP, Scott Sillari, are my mentors, family and the voice of reason when I need advice, guidance or just that extra push of ambition on days where I’m lost within my own headspace.
My co-workers are my teammates, my friends and the people I get to constantly have conversations with about new ideas, concepts and examples when I need a fresh new perspective on projects and marketing.
We meet every morning and have Team Masterminds every few months to go over how we can improve, progress and expand not just as individuals but also, as a team personally and professionally.
Truthfully, I thought after college I was never going to get the chance to learn again. I thought I would have to attend grad school and be forced into debt just to be able to continue to progress as a person and challenge myself as a student.
A lot of the time people ask the most intriguing question,
“What is the last book you read and what are you currently reading?”
As an English Major, my whole life has been reading and writing and after I graduated I strayed away from my passion and found myself at a complete loss as to what my next move was in terms of life, self growth and a career path.
Vyral Marketing gave me the opportunity to learn while getting paid.
Over the last 6 months I have read cover to cover,
and now I am currently reading, “Thank You for Being Late” – Thomas L. Friedman
and have two more books up next that I’m beyond eager to get started.
My Netflix time has been significantly cut in half not because I’m being forced to pick up these books but because I genuinely enjoy what I’m gaining from this content.
We have a communal library full of a limitless amount of books and training material that our team has access to 24/7. Every day, I find myself falling head over heels with literature, learning and now, falling in love with my career.
I thought after completing this apprenticeship I would reach the finish line knowing absolutely everything there is to possibly understand about the marketing world, communication and consulting.
The truth is,
I’m just getting started.
Frank said it from day one. The learning never stops and 80% of this is communication and the other 20% is marketing. It’s always important to keep an open mind when you’re stepping out of your comfort zone – but if I’ve gained anything from this experience – it’s that you should never question the process.
The more I questioned the process and the material – the more I struggled with enjoying the journey and I realized, the harder I worked, the more time and energy I chose to put in day in and day out…
I suddenly found myself loving the struggle because it allowed me to appreciate the success.
Just like Facebook, YouTube and all aspects of technology, it’s going to be constantly evolving and I’ve learned that you can go one of two ways. You can fall behind or learn the material to conquer the field. With confidence and excitement, I can now say I’m on the path of learning how to master each and every social platform to the best of my ability while being surrounded by a team who shares the same passion, drive and motivation as me.
We all want to constantly learn and become the best versions of ourselves while improving the life of others. Getting the opportunity to work within a company that wants to grow as much as I do – is honestly a blessing and I hope that any other 24-year-old who feels as lost as I did after graduating – gets a chance to experience something like this.
I know I have a long journey ahead of me and there are still going to be moments where I want to give up, give in and get out – but if I’ve learned anything within these 6 months is that I can confidently say that I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be on the path leading to where I want to go.
From Me to You:
Don’t take anything personally.
If someone gives you constructive criticism take that as a compliment. Someone else is taking time out their day and thoughts out of their mind to help YOU improve.
There are going to be moments where you want to give up because you’re tired, you’ve had too much and you’re aggravated because for the last 60+ hours you worked on a project that you either had to gut or change entirely because the client you created it for wasn’t pleased or they had something else envisioned.
Those hours weren’t a waste of time. It was a learning experience that will make you better.
There are going to be emails upon emails you write to either a client or a prospect and often, you may not get the response you we’re looking for or sometimes, you wont get a response at all.
It doesn’t mean they don’t like you as a person or you’re not good enough. That person may have something going on personally or professionally or maybe they just don’t need the marketing service you’re offering to supply.
Print out those emails.
Study those emails.
Rewrite those emails and find ways to improve your communication by finding a persons need through research, communication and empathy.
The people who never answered you, untimely made you better.
As long as you choose to embrace this experience and have the need, want desire and passion to learn something new every single day that you’re here…
you will succeed at Vyral Marketing.
I’m a junior at San Diego State University working on a BA in Communications and I concentrate my time in rhetoric. Ever since I joined my debate team in high school, I’ve always been interested in persuasion and beyond sales positions, marketing is the perfect spot to expand my skill set. Every day working with Frank is full of new opportunity to grow individually and professionally. It will always be difficult to express my thankfulness for my newfound creative freedom but for now, all I have to say is that I can’t wait to see what new challenges are around the corner.
Hi! I'm Nicole. I am currently a senior at San Diego State University majoring in communication with a minor in marketing. I am also an active member of Alpha Chi Omega. I came all the way from the east coast for college and am proud to say that it was one of the best decisions of my life.

Your training includes a daily group meeting every morning with a senior partner to review your past day's work, a weekly one-on-one meeting for goal setting, and three hours of classroom time once a week for training all via video conference.

You will be paid for all training. Successful trainees will join our team on all-expense-paid trips including flights, hotels, and meals so you too can attend industry events and conferences to meet and network with clients. This is a one-year, very intense, learning-based paid hourly apprenticeship to fast track you as a highly paid internet marketing professional.

Upon your hire, you'll come to our office - at our expense - in downtown San Diego to meet our team personally before you start training.
Who We are Looking For
We hire only academic achievers and people passionate about internet marketing, who are also “intrapreneurs”, meaning you ultimately want to build a big career and a big business inside Vyral Marketing. Ideal candidates have a grand vision for their career, high income goals, and know what they want to do professionally. Ideally you see yourself as future business leader and builder, indispensable to growth. Ideal candidates have a proven record of accomplishment and personality that’s results-oriented, decisive, and take-charge. You’re a fit for the job when you have the knowledge, skills, track-record, and personality to get the job done and you’re a cultural fit within our organization. You find solutions, share goals, know what you want (or are actively searching to know what you want), push those around you to do better, are continually raising the bar, demand to be associated with talent, and talk the language of action and results. During your interview, we are probing for patterns in your behavior and thinking, how you act, and how you process ideas and problems. If you are an assertive, people oriented, impatient, flexible, independent, intense, and optimistic person who takes a logical approach to problem solving, can rapidly deal with many problems at once, and can naturally hold, manipulate, and think about three dimensions in your mind (spatial visualization), you will be at home here where you can be yourself every day and thrive. Not to worry, during the interview process we go through all of this so ultimately, we get to know you and hopefully you get to know more about yourself.
No. This is not a bait and switch. You will be in a new business role for the first six months talking to prospective and past clients on the phone. This is where you'll learn the needs and goals of our clients. It's also time to develop your communication, influence, listening, and persuasion skills. You’ll also strengthen your ability to handle rejection (clients may reject your ideas!) You must be a proven, strong communicator to work directly with clients. You will be doing "sales" work initially (we don’t call it “sales” since we take a consultative approach and only offer solutions to client problems) before you graduate to doing the actual internet marketing work. "Quality work is not quality service." This is your time to sharpen your communication skill to deliver great service over the phone and by email/video conferencing.
You'll be paid an entry-level hourly base to start. For the first six months, you'll speak to 25 new people a week (100 a month) about our service. We expect 2-3 people per 100 to hire us within 90 days of your first conversation. After your first sign up each month, you'll earn a $1,000 bonus for each new client. You can expect to earn $2,000-3,000 a month within the first 90 days. As you transition to a marketing-only role after six months, you'll earn a $50,000 salary with 8 paying, happy clients by the end of the your apprenticeship. We secure the clients for you.
