Internship
Project Manager (Apprentice) (Former Employee), Dulles, VAMarch 11, 2014
Pros: free lunches, great atmosphere, great people, so many learning experiences
Cons: leaving the program
I loved my internship with AOL. My day started off kind of slow being as though we had to be up so early and travel so far. But it was definitely worth every moment of travel. I learned how to run meetings effectively, how to conduct wiki pages, how to process tickets, and so many other project management skills. Management was awesome, always had something – more... for us to do to research. My co-workers were very helpful in every way possible and that made the entire experience enjoyable. The hardest part of the job was learning how to do something I wasn't use to doing such as creating wiki pages and working in Omniture Site Catalyst, but once I got the hang of it, it became fun to do. The most enjoyable part was the whole experience from beginning to end. – less

Pros: less stressful
Cons: people yelling at you on the phone
I sold America Online yellow pages for business'. It was a little stressful cold calling but the owners always did what they could to calm us down. They allowed as many breaks as possible. The company soon went out of business.
