    I worked at AroundCampus as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Best opportunity I could have ever asked for at a college level. NONE of my friends or classmates have had the experience I have had after completing this internship. Want to put yourself above the average and above all of the others you are competing against? DO IT. Best networking you could ever have a long with a training experience above all others. I had SEVEN companies reach out to me after the internship was over because they appreciate how difficult it is and what kind of person it takes to be successful.

    Cons

    Hardest thing I have ever done during the first month. Can be emotionally draining but you get used to it after awhile. You will be SO GLAD when you stick it out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    KEEP IT UP! Awesome, positive, relatable, personable, talented, I could go on and on. And OUTSTANDING and sales training!

    When recruiting interns be honest about what the position entails. Don't promote it as a marketing or business internship it is a SALES internship.

    While we've never been shy of our sales internship, marketing by definition is "the action or business of promoting and selling products or services, including market research and advertising."
