    I worked at AIESEC part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You get to meet a lot of people, and attend several events that are all based on getting you as focused as possible on the acquisition of students to send abroad. The process of helping people go study/work to another country can be very exciting for both the recruiter and student, as many of them go work in their dream destinations & companies. You will definitely like the social gatherings and the joy that comes from being able to interact with people from all over the world. Overall, a good experience for college students who are into traveling and getting to know others.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the job was voluntary and they expected a lot of commitment for what it was. As a recruiter, you are expected to bring as many students as possible and you don't really get any benefits yourself when you want to go abroad.
