    I have been working at The Campus Special as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As cliché as it sounds, taking the internship with the Campus Special has changed my professional life tremendously. I took the internship without having much background in marketing and sales; needless to say I was a little hesitant at first. On top of having no prior background, I am generally a quiet and reserved person so the thought of coming face to face with a business owner terrified me. The training given by the Campus Special, however, gave me all the necessary skills to get out there and sell the product, as well as the motivation I needed to overcome my fear. After making my first sale, all of the nerves turned into motivation and I knew I had what it takes to finish strong. I will carry with me the hands on experience, confidence and self-motivation I have gained through the Campus Special throughout my professional career.

    Cons

    As with anything, what you put in is what you get out; this internship is no different. If you are willing to dedicate yourself and step outside of your comfort zone, this internship will pay off in more ways than imaginable.

    I worked at The Campus Special as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The Campus Special summer internship was the most rewarding experience of my life bar none. Everything I haves armed in class was finally put to the true test of selling an amazing product, working with teammates, and writing crucial reports. Over the summer I was transformed into a young business professional. Because of my experience with the campus special, I just landed my dream job! Everyone should apply online as soon as you read this! I put my word on my statements. My manager was the most important part of my success without a doubt. If you believe in yourself, you will succeed.

    Cons

    This was also the biggest challenges in my young career. Campus Special will not hide the amount of hard work it takes. You will not succeed if you slack off. Hard work is always worth it in the end!

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring the best managers possible! I hope you pay them well because they deserve it! Offer a ski trip maybe!
