Sales & Marketing Intern

May - July 2019 • Reston, VA

What I liked

I worked alongside a team of other interns so it was very helpful to be able to problem-solve with them and go through the experience with like-minded people! It also made the experience more pleasant to be able to make friends and crack jokes to lighten up the workday.

What I wish was different

I wish I was assigned more research. I liked it when I could sit quietly, research, and type. Most of the assignments had to do with sales calls, which makes sense because it is a sales company, but I realized it was not my favorite thing to do. Some others really loved making calls!

Advice

I think this experience would be great for someone who is very outgoing, sociable, and can handle talking to anyone! Pretty much every day I had to call a hundred new people and it takes a loud voice to do that.

What I liked

I learned a lot about the beginnings of sales and what you must learn and do before you even start talking to clients. I really liked how the employees made you feel like a part of the company.

What I wish was different

It was closer to me and it had more information

Advice

As an intern and new employee all you will be doing is cold calls
