    I worked at AroundCampus as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    It helped me get a great job after college, but I really just needed any business experience to make my resume look good. I was sufficient in leadership categories and needed this job to help me get recognized after college.

    Cons

    I lost money on the whole summer. The sales experience is not enjoyable and the product is not very marketable. The stated rates were ridiculous to ask for print advertising that had such small distribution. Competition had a better proposition with more salesmen flexibility on pricing. I did not learn much from this job experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give salespeople a better opportunity to have control over pricing. You need to close the sale in the first trip for a successful summer.
