    If you put in the effort, you will get hooked up with post grad jobs, plain and simple.
    You learn about yourself and foster great new skills/

    Cons

    You have to really work your ass off, sometimes things can be confusing and not all that transparent with regards to how you conduct yourself.

    Pros

    Opportunity 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!!

    Cons

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

    Pros

    As a sales rep, you learn first hand how to be successful working B2B and handling yourself professionally. If you get to return for a second summer as an ASM, you have the opportunity to travel and experience multiple college campuses while getting invaluable experience as a manager and motivator. All of the managers have done the internship position before, and are always eager to give advice and help you out if you ask.

    Cons

    It's hard work and not at all an easy job, you'll hear "no" a lot. There are a lot of challenges and sometimes failures, but you can learn a lot from it.

    Pros

    -- Fantastic training program
    -- Ability to make your own decisions
    -- Real world sales experience
    -- First hand experience dealing with objections (this will provide great experience to share during interviews)
    -- Work with an entire team of people to bounce ideas/tips/tricks with
    -- Supportive upper management
    -- Helpful daily webinars with the President, John O'Brien
    -- Although you work in a school specific team, there is an entire team back at the home-office willing to help you through any problem

    Ultimately, you really have to be (or become) self-motivated to do this internship. You are, essentially, your own boss. It's really an experience like no other, and I would recommend it, time and time again.

    Cons

    -- It's hard work; expect that. However, a summer with UD will show you some of the greatest sales experience out there for people our age.

    Pros

    Awesome company!! We had the best management team and all of the interns became extremely close. All of our managers were young, too so it was really fun. It's really great real life sales experience, especially since print advertising is a difficult product to sell. If you can do this, you can pretty much do any sort of sales job.

    Tons of recruiting from career partners. Also, training was probably the best week and a half of my life!

    Cons

    Some markets are harder to sell in than others. Not paid for gas and food. Only get paid compensation for money collected by certain date. If you have a bad territory it can be frustrating

    Other than that, this was the best job I could have had before graduating.
