    University Directories Reviews

    Sales Representative (Current Employee) Ames, IA

    ProsVoted the #1 collegiate media company in the nation, I would recommend this internship to anyone who is interested in building relationships, learning to challenge their limits, and is ready to take the next step in their career path. University Directories not only provides a great sales foundation academy in Chapel Hill, North Carolina for interns across the country, but they provide EXCELLENT management that continues to mentor and push you during the entire summer. As a college senior, I have so many valuable life lessons to take away from this internship and am already being reached out to by partners of the company for full-time positions after graduation. If you want to work at a place that is going to not only help you find a job, but continue to care about you as an individual, University Directories is the way to go! You'll take nothing but memorable experiences, close relationships, and skills you can use to enhance your daily lifestyle!

    ConsThe only thing I would change about the internship is getting to know more people from other reasons. Although we had a close-knitted region, I feel people should be given more time to talk with others at training about different cultures and seeing if they would be interested in looking at employment outside of their comfort zones!

    Amazing opportunity right out of college

    Regional Manager (Current Employee) Chapel Hill, NC

    ProsOpportunity to hold a lot of responsibility at a young age. You are responsible for recruiting, training and managing 40+ interns in multiple college markets. You will gain real-world experience in management at a young age. The company culture is second to none, great work environment!!

    ConsHaving a million dollar goal at 24 years old can be a lot of pressure, but I love the challenge!
