“The SMG internship is the best summer investment that I have ever made, HANDS DOWN! This internship taught me the fundamental skills that it takes to be successful in sales which can be applied to any product, at any company. This program prepares you professionally but will also have a lasting impact on you personally. For example, I learned lessons about pre call, cold calling, sales presentations, tonality, closing, persistence, and how to build my own book of business. However, I also learned the importance of a daily routine, gratitude, motivation, and a positive mindset. All of these skills along with my performance in the program helped me build an unbelievable resume. My resume was so strong due of this program that every time I submitted a job application nine time out of ten I would get the interview. As a result, I was able to land my dream job at a fortune 50 company, UPS! Even after working for a fortune 50 company I can honestly say that SMG prepared me more than most the sales professionals I work with are and has set me up to make an immediate impact. Lastly, the culture and environment at SMG is unbelievable. The support and number of people who are believe in you is amazing which results is the strongest business connections and friendships.

“The SMG internship I completed was the most rewarding experience of my adult life so far. Not only did it land me my first job after college that I wouldn’t have received without my experiences gained at SMG, but it left a solid mark in my heart that I will never forget. The staff is beyond supportive and you will be welcomed to a new family. If you are looking for experience in sales, marketing and even graphic design I recommend this internship. You have the ability to earn commission off of the work you put in, but most importantly you have something to speak on when applying for jobs after college. Having tangible experiences of cold calling, objection handling and marketing is the most value piece I took with me to all of my interviews. The cherry on top? Lifelong friendships with the SMG staff, many aspiring entrepreneurs and hardworking students just like you! If you’re a go-getter, I promise you won’t regret this!”

“The experience that I gained during my internship with SMG played a vital role in allowing me to land my dream job immediately following graduation. The friendly, yet competitive culture that SMG embodies is perfect for anyone with a “work hard, play hard” mindset. Although this may not be the easiest internship you’re going to find, it’s the one that’s going to allow you to add insurmountable experience to your resume. Not only did my time with SMG provide me with a versatile skill-set to succeed in any business setting, but it also helped me discover a lot about myself and the type of person that I aspire to be.”
