Internships are great ways to gain work experience, make amazing references, and learn more about what you do and do not like to do. Although having internships to fill up the entire year would be lovely sometimes they just don’t fit into your schedule. Sometimes you just don’t have enough time in the day to tack on an extra internship. So what is a busy collegiate to do? Campus Rep positions of course! Being a campus rep is a great opportunity that is similar to an internship but doesn’t require as much of your time. There are countless companies that provide campus ambassadors and rep positions, all you have to do is go looking for them! Also, if you do an amazing job at your rep position you could get an internship out of it as well! That’s just an extra bonus.
