Pros

I had a great experience with University Directories. My summer with UD has had a huge impact on my life. UD maintains a high standard of sales excellence and taught me so much. Not only did I learn a lot about the fundamentals of sales but I also learned a lot about myself in the process. The management team truly cares about their interns and is there to motivate and coach you all along the way. Immeaditly after my summer with UD I was contacted by several employers looking to interview for full-time jobs. The companies I interviewed with were very impressed by my experience with UD and it has opened many doors for my future. I would absolutely recommend this internship, I can't speak highly enough of what UD has done for me.

Cons

This internship IS challenging, you must work hard at it everyday but the end reward makes it so worth it.

    Pros

    AMAZING one week TRAINING program in NORTH CAROLINA - expenses PAID Employers are looking for this internship The opportunities after the internship The skills that you COULD NEVER learn inside a classroom You are able to put forth the amount of effort you want, with a equal return Feeling of accomplishment with every sale Amount of encouragement from management and reinforcement

    Cons

    When looking back I do not think there were any cons, but here are some that some people may think: LONG and hard work days, BUT it is what NEEDS to happen for a salesperson to get stronger Different territories / unfair comparisons amongst salespeople in other territories, BUT that’s life Dedication required, BUT that is needed for every good sales position This IS a hard internship, and nothing is handed to you but you WILL benefit from it

    Advice to Management

    I think that the management did an amazing job, especially with what they promised would come from this internship. I am just like the majority of the interns that while doing the internship I wanted to quit and hated it at times, but in reality it was the best experience I could have ever went through. I learned so much from this opportunity. I did the internship this past summer and already benefitted immensely. I received a $3000 scholarship from ADP, and have had recruiters calling and e-mailing me for interviews. The whole job processes has turned. No longer am I worried about getting a job, I am more worried about finding the perfect fit for me. I WOULD RECOMMEND this internship to ANYONE who wants a future in sales (70%+ of all business students end up here). Therefore, the management has done an amazing job of getting my information out to employers and helped coach me through sticking with the internship, the two things that were promised to me.

    There is no company that takes care of their interns more than UD.

    Pros

    Extensive training Great pay Real world experience Awesome company feedback and communication Management experience Opportunities for advancement Excellent career partners

    Cons

    Some cons that I found while working with University Directories were that since it was a sales job you do have to do quite a bit of driving. I spent 8 hours a day driving around my city making cold calls and I really burned through some gas, however since the pay was so great it wasn't to bad.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the motivation! I wouldn't have succeeded this summer if it wasn't for the great management I had behind me.
