Business Development Intern (Former Employee) – Norfolk, VA – February 14, 2017
Overall I had a good experience with Course Hero. However, because I was also a full time college student, I sometimes found myself putting work first, before my classes and personal life. If you decide to take an unpaid internship with this firm like I did, then make sure you can also keep up with your classes and not neglect friends.
Business development Intern (Former Employee) – Knoxville, TN – December 27, 2015
On a typical day, I would talk to fellow students about notes that they no longer had any use for, and then I would set time aside to upload the material. From what I learned, I learned about how to properly manage time and make sacrifices. I also learned about how to market and what would get a lot of shares and likes. I learned how to utilize Facebook and twitter as well as some experience in managing a team. My co-workers were helpful and understanding. My supervisor was more than understanding whenever we failed and she didn't ever scold me. She would confront me in a caring way. The hardest part of the job was selling it to other students. I learned that it is hard to sell to students, but I also had help with tables and getting ideas with promotion. The most enjoyable part was when I heard some people got to use it and also my supervisor coming by and helping me with promotion. It was really effective at spreading the word and getting others involved let me know that I wasn't alone.
Patient staff and encouraging people.
No central location, and payment, at first was difficult.
Business Development Intern (Former Employee) – California – May 26, 2015
I really liked that I could balance my schoolwork as a college undergraduate, as well as work with Course Hero. You worked on your own time and got paid on commission which was nice because weeks that I had an exam, I could focus on learning, while weeks I was free I could commit to CH. Manager was very understanding of conflicts that came up and was ok with rescheduling meetings.
Internship (Former Employee) – Dahlonega – April 22, 2015
This internship, while the pay is low, is an excellent position to develop real world communication skills. My manager was one of the most enthusiastic and fun I've ever had. Course Hero also offers plenty of opportunities to move upwards if you prove able and stick around.
Great opportunity to improve myself, yet help others.
INTERNSHIP & PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM (Current Employee) – Redwood City, CA – June 26, 2014
This is an internship that works through long distance communications. I communicate with my "boss" once a week by phone, voice call or email. I like the flexibility and the opportunities to better my professional self. Being the sole leader of a group of more than 10 people who I did not have face-to-face contact with all the time was a challenge, but I feel as though I am overcoming that barrier. My sole duty is to reach out to other students from all over & get them to understand the mission of the Course Hero organization & ask them to donate study materials to the online database. In turn, a book is donated abroad for every course they upload.
Bonuses for meeting deadlines & over-reaching weekly goals.
A tad time consuming when balancing school and other activities.
