    I worked at The Campus Special as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    My internship with The Campus Special was probably the single most important experience I've had in my college career. This internship has taken me to the next level, not only in transforming me from a student to a professional, but one with the confidence and experience that will allow me to stand apart from my peers. By the end of this internship, I knew that I could walk into any job interview and nail it, because my resume spoke for itself. I can't say enough good things about everyone at this company, and how hard they will work for you as long as you put in the time and energy for them!

    Cons

    This internship is HARD WORK, but it definitely pays off in the end if you can stick it out!

    Keep up the great motivation techniques! :)

    Pros

    CAMPUS SPECIAL CHANGED MY LIFE, and I knew it would from the first day of training conference. By the end of summer I had finished in the top 6% of all Account Executives nationwide and I couldn't have been more shocked or proud of myself. The knowledge and confidence you gain through this internship are priceless and you notice it not only in yourself, but others notice it in you. Building the Campus Special brand for your University whether you are a new market, renewal market, or the Campus Special has been around for years, is one of the most rewarding experiences. To look across campus and in the community and see people using what you worked so hard throughout the summer to provide for them is remarkable. When Campus Special says they will work hard for you if you work hard for them, they mean it. Being a graduate, I had Campus Special in mind for experience and a future career liaison. After the internship concluded, my resume was built and sent out to as many Career Partners as possible and within 2 days I had 15 phone calls that led to great opportunities. Your phone blows up, your interview skills are through the roof compared to other graduates, and your career possibilities are endless. I chose the perfect job for me through Campus Special Career Partners and am beyond thankful for the Campus Special opportunity! Without them, I wouldn't be where I am today. GO FOR IT! YOU WON"T REGRET IT!

    Cons

    You need to be very self disciplined, time effective, and ready for anything/anyone that is thrown your way. Don't let that discourage you, being an Account Executive teaches you to overcome all those things!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more rest! :)
