    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at AroundCampus.

    Interview

    There are three interviews. The first one is a phone interview to get to know what exactly you are looking for. The second interview is a Skype interview, my Skype was not working so their was no video on my end. A couple of difficult questions asked. He asked me what I wanted to gain out of an internship, why I would be a good candidate. I was also asked to pretend to sell a company an advertising slot on the back of an agenda book, they said they were passed their budget so I had to convince them yet to still buy a spot in our advertisement. After this he called me back two days later offering me a position.

    Reasons for Declining

    It is not worth all the travel. It was cool that they had training in North Carolina. You only earn $200 a week but it is taken back after the summer and subtracted from all the commission you have earned. Commission is only 15% of sales. There is a lot of traveling required and a car is needed. The salary definitely was not going to cover the costs of all the travel involved. It did seem like a good experience but not worth the time if you are looking for something that pays well with good hours. Hours were 8-5 which is a lot considering you are only getting 200 a week. They try to lure people in by advertising it is a "PAID" internship but when you do the math definitely not worth it.

    One interview, it would help to have a plan when deciding if this program is the plan for you. Such as knowing what you would like to get out of the program. The management is amazing.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at AroundCampus (Chapel Hill, NC) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Step one: Submit your application on the web, or find them at a career fair if their on your campus. If you meet with the company at a career fair, you'll do an interview that's about half an hour. Their going to ask questions to see how easy/friendly you are to work with (tell us about a time you had to work with someone who was tough to work with, etc.) This is the best time to learn about all the different jobs they offer.

    Step two: In-office interview: The questions will largely be exactly the same as those with step one. They'll also give you a quick little quiz to test your editing ability. You may want to bone up on advanced rules for alphabetical order, commonly misspelled words, and Advertising Capitalization rules.

    Interview Questions

    • I discovered I could stand a refresher on more advanced cases of alphabetical order. As in what's first: abc or abcd. (if your not sure, look up the rules)   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It seemed more like an offer then a negotiation. I'd be curious if anyone has ever been able to haggle up their salary, or maybe got themselves some sort of perk.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at AroundCampus.

    Interview

    After an initial phone screening, I went in for a first and then a second interview within two weeks. The interview process was very prompt, but following-up afterwards was impossible. It took me about a month to get a direct answer on a decision and if wasn't so persistent, I'd probably still be waiting.

    I applied online – interviewed at AroundCampus.

    Interview

    Came in, took a quiz that tested knowledge of graphic design. This was really helpful for me because I was so nervous, it gave me time to compose myself. After I was finished, they asked general interview questions. Interviewers were young and very nice. This was also comforting. Not a hard interview, still made me nervous but by the end they had definitely given me a clear snapshot of what my responsibilities would be if I got it. Lasted about 45 minutes total

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at AroundCampus.

    Interview

    I applied through my university's career services. First, they requested I do a virtual interview in which I recorded myself answering 5 questions. Simple, nothing out of the ordinary. Couple weeks later, I got an emailing requesting an interview. The interview was 30 minutes long, had standard questions too - weaknesses, why AroundCampus, why should we hire you. The interviewer also took some time to explain the internship in detail - training week, payroll, daily schedule. The interviewer was very friendly and easy to talk to. A week later, I got a phone call saying I got the offer.
