Pros

Expenses paid sales training in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Great networking opportunities with career partners. All of the hard work pays off when it comes to looking for a career in sales.

Cons

It can sometimes be a pain to have to constantly bug the same businesses after they've said no 5 times. Paper advertising is the hardest type of sales, and it really takes a lot of motivation. My market was small and so was my territory which made it harder to sell.

    I worked at AroundCampus as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Real sales experience
    -No one hovering over you, you're self directed and responsible
    -Great networking opportunity
    -The training in SC was the best part, learned a lot of great things.

    Cons

    -Low pay
    -No work-life balance, you're expected to put in long hours
    -Hearing "no" so many times can be exhausting
    -Little growth within company

    Advice to Management

    Stop advertising this as a marketing and advertising internship. It's not, and that's FALSE advertising. I quit after a few weeks because I was so miserable. This a sales internship. Nothing else.

    Pros

    -Fun, young, energetic management team
    -All of the sales managers and the President himself have done the internship, so they know exactly how to coach and mentor us
    -Hands on, real life sales experience that you can't find at any other internship
    -Great support system throughout the summer, the Regional Managers visit you in each market and do ride alongs and go on sales calls with you
    -Career Partner Network with great companies who actively seek to hire our interns, I had 5 companies reach out to me to discuss full time opportunities after I completed the internship
    -Morning webinar led by the President every single morning to fire up the teams

    Cons

    -It definitely comes with it's challenges but interns that put in the time and effort will see success throughout the program

    Advice to Management

    -Don't change a thing, I still keep in touch with my regional manager and he is responsible for a large amount of personal and professional growth over the summer and my last year as an intern
