    Pros

    -Real world skills - Communication skills - B2B Sales - Networking skills

    Cons

    I understand why people say this is "a lot of work" -- but the recruiters that hired me never hid that fact. It is a lot of work, but at the end of the day, I learned more during the internship than I did working at a restaurant for 3 years.


  2. It was okay, but get ready to work a lot and outside of the 8:30 to 5:30 time range.

    I worked at AroundCampus

    Pros

    Most of the employees were fun to work with, getting sales experience, and an all expense paid week of training in Chapel Hill, NC.

    Cons

    The products don't really work well in cities that aren't college towns and some interns were immature.

    Advice to Management

    Better hours and understanding what the sales reps have to go through. Hire better interns because some were rude, immature and lazy.

    Pros

    Work independently, gain presentation experience, quick interview process, ability to work for a variety of businesses,

    Cons

    limited training, little assistance throughout the promotional process, almost an entirely independent operation (ability to work with another ambassador on your campus)

    Advice to Management

    more contact with recruiters, more guidance during on-campus recruitment

    Pros

    Week long training, consistent management and coaching, young culture, paid. All recruiters talk about when I attend Career Fairs etc is my experience with The AroundCampus Group. 18 or so companies in their Career Partner Network.

    Cons

    It's hard work, don't expect to put in 50% and excel at this internship. You will be faced with challenges but the students that work hard and overcome those challenges (because it is possible) will benefit greatly from this program.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the consistent coaching. I still keep in touch with my manager who has become more of a mentor for me!

    It was a great sales internship. Really taught me a lot about myself and allowed me to work on my business skills.

    Pros

    They have a great training program where they help you every step of the way.

    Cons

    The first day can be hectic and stressful. You are luck if you get the regional manager to assist on the first day.

    Advice to Management

    Give the interns the sales script to learn before training.

    Move past paper, get deeper into the digital realm
