“My experience at SMG definitely helped me land a great job after graduation. The internship will not only help you to succeed in a sales position, but also builds skills that are important in any career. I had the flexibility to manage my own schedule around my classes and calls to business owners helped grow my confidence and professionalism. The management was very active and made me feel well prepared before going out into the field! I’ve been able to apply everything I’ve learned at SMG to my new career and would recommend this position to anyone!”

“My internship with SMG provided me the sales and marketing experience that I needed as a platform to transition into my career post college. Today I use the exact same base skills that I learned while an intern at SMG to develop corporate partners within major motorsports properties like: NASCAR, Formula 1, IndyCar, Hendrick Motorsports, PENSKE, Roush Fenway, and Michael Waltrip Racing. If you are an individual that has the passion and drive to become a top professional in sales and marketing, there is no better place for you to begin your journey than an internship at SMG.”

“This internship is one of the greatest experiences any college student can have. Regardless of your major, you will reap the benefits from holding this summer position.
I have made countless business relationships, answered questions and concerns, learned how to negotiate to satisfy both parties, and successfully brought in new clients who anxiously wait to see their advertisement. Thank you Student Media Group for an unforgettable summer!”

“My experience at SMG was nothing but positive. I worked closely with talented and experienced salespeople who expected a high level of performance, yet were supportive and enthusiastic. The flexible hours and the ability to drive my own income is unparalleled by any other part time student internship. My favorite part was the fun, friendly culture and the great relationships that existed between employees. I gained great sales experience and an elevated work ethic which I apply to this day.”

“My internship at Student Media Group opened my eyes to sales. Although it was not easy, it was extremely rewarding as I was able to gain hands-on experience, network, learn more about the Harrisonburg community, and earn cash all at the same time! I would recommend this excellent opportunity to students at any university as it will lead them on the road to success in the ‘real world.’ This internship helped me land my dream job at ADP. Thanks SMG!”

“The SMG internship prepared me with experiences I needed in order to jump-start my career in marketing. It allowed me to receive a proven sales/marketing experience to build the skills on my resume.

“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.”
