    It was great experience

    Former Employee - Marketing Coordinator in Columbia, MO
    Former Employee - Marketing Coordinator in Columbia, MO

    I worked at University of Missouri as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I did an internship for the Women's Volleyball team. It was good marketing experience, learning to build plans scratch and working with a diverse team. My boss was great.

    Cons

    It was unpaid. I was forced to work with a person who actively worked against me at every turn. It was a lesson on how to work with people I guess

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider some base compensation. I had to get a second job to make some money that summer because the internship was unpaid.
