    I worked at AroundCampus

    Pros

    Teaches you how to work with people and complete legitimate sales transactions. Though not a prestigious internship, it looks good on a resume and gives you some good selling points to discuss in an interview. Gives you thick skin and the confidence to keep selling when someone tells you "no."

    Cons

    Low pay and difficult job of selling advertising that is rarely used. It can be very discouraging and boring at times. If you're not a sales or people person, you will be frustrated by all the sales jargon and lack of intellectual stimulation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good job accomplishing the task of motivating college students to keep selling in the face of adversity. Make sure you make yourself available after the internship to help with career partners and writing letters of recommendation.

    I worked at AroundCampus

    Pros

    The send you to North Carolina and teach you a ton. I refer to what I've learned all the time in my current job and jobs that I have applied for.

    Cons

    The way you get compensated but it makes sense because if you don't sell anything you shouldn't get paid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would have liked my regional manager to spend more time in my region because I was a single man team. I would have like a person to bounce ideas off of.
