    Pros

    Week long training, consistent management and coaching, young culture, paid. All recruiters talk about when I attend Career Fairs etc is my experience with The AroundCampus Group. 18 or so companies in their Career Partner Network.

    Cons

    It's hard work, don't expect to put in 50% and excel at this internship. You will be faced with challenges but the students that work hard and overcome those challenges (because it is possible) will benefit greatly from this program.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the consistent coaching. I still keep in touch with my manager who has become more of a mentor for me!

    Cons

    I understand why people say this is "a lot of work" -- but the recruiters that hired me never hid that fact. It is a lot of work, but at the end of the day, I learned more during the internship than I did working at a restaurant for 3 years.
