Terry College of Business: May 2012
Marketing/Event Planning Intern at IMG Academies
As a junior in college, the importance of a summer internship has continuously been stressed in many of my Terry classes. I applied for a marketing/event promotions internship with IMG Academies in Bradenton, FL and when I got the call for an interview I had no idea on how to prepare. I immediately emailed my Career Consultant, who was able to meet with me to look over my resume and help me prepare for my phone interview. My Career Consultant set up a mock interview that allowed to me go through what a real interview would feel like without the added pressure. Without her, I would not have been as comfortable with interviewing skills and she has continued to give me helpful hints throughout the entire process. Without the interview preparation, I don't think I would have had as much confidence during my interview, and may not have gotten the internship.
After my interview, my Career Consultant followed up with emails, making sure things went well and was so excited to learn that I had gotten the internship. It's so nice to know that there are people at the Career Center that truly care about each of their students’ success, especially in such a large university like UGA. I have had nothing but great experiences with the Career Center and recommend their services to anyone.
