Great team environment. Felt like I was a part of the organization as an intern.

Baylor Campus Intern

May 2019 • Waco, TX

What I liked

I like the flexibility. I pretty much get to choose my own hours, and work less during busy times (finals week, vacations, ect.)

The internship is very much a sales internship. I wish I could learn more about other aspects of this company.

Advice

You'll be conducting your own meetings with a lot of potential contacts on campus. If this is not something you are interested in, than this internship may not be for you.
