    Pros

    You schedule your own work day.

    Cons

    You are essentially selling ad space in a university planner to local businesses (strictly a sales job, not the marketing and PR job it is presented as). You have to cold call 30 businesses a day and often deal with former clients who have been dissatisfied, as they are rarely happy with their ad's success.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the managers are very good, but others lack organization. My regional manager did not give my sales team the information and paperwork we needed early enough in the internship to give us a chance to make our sales goal. Later in the summer, this manager ended up leaving the company without any warning which was also very disruptive.

    Pros

    Real world experience Work as a team Great Managers Sales Training at UNC for a week Structured program One of the few paid internships

    Cons

    It is very difficult work You can get unlucky with your territory It is strictly cold calling It can become monotonous

    Advice to Management

    You should tell sales representatives to write down the reasons for why the are rejected. I did not know prices would go down or there would be alive after five at the beginning of the summer. This would have been useful to know so reps can know to go back or not.
