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

Pros

It gave me experience talking with all types of business leaders. It gave me the framework to sell a product and its benefits. If you are prepared, success will come easier. Training is excellent and management takes pride in their interns.

Cons

It can be disheartening after a while. Individuals for this job need the determination and the will to be a salesperson. If you aren't very outgoing, I wouldn't recommend this job.

    Pros

    - Training in North Carolina was great.
    - Met some great people, including my boyfriend (;
    - Worked own schedule.

    Cons

    - VERY underpaid for the work you do.
    - when talking to the "decision makers", they did not like UD at all.
    - sold in a very small, very budgeted market which made things thirty times harder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PAY THE INTERNS MORE FOR THEIR WORK! Too much hard work for too little pay.

    Pros

    I learned great real world experience. My Boss was great and was always willing to help me get exposure to my resume. I still receive e-mails from U.D. career partners.

    Cons

    its a short quick summer and no time for vacation. Also my customers didn't pay, therefore i didn't see any extra commission

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!
