Working with the many representatives in our district and being able to work with my own clients.

How difficult it is to pull other interns into the office.

Advice to Potential Interns

Come in with a work hard mentality and this career will be extremely rewarding for you.

The only thing I would like more out of the internship is more team functions. The more you bring the team together and have fun outside of the office, the more productive you become because it doesn't feel like work.

I learned more in just 3 months doing this internship than I did while in college.

Downers

There is nothing that I didn't like about the internship.

Portland, OR | 2015 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Having full autonomy, if I felt like working I did, if not then I simply did not show up. I've never been one for the typical 9-5, and being able to set my on schedule was a huge priority for me.

Downers

This is more of office issue, but since we are located in downtown Portland we have to pay for our own parking. It can get really expensive at 10-15 dollars a day.

Advice to Potential Interns

Work hard, this is an amazing opportunity with limitless potential in he future. If you were to flush this down the drain it would be like the career that got away.

Advice to Management

I've got no advice for management, they are doing everything in their power to make it the best possible experience for those that actively participate.

Sample Interview Questions

How do you feel about self guided work?
Are you self motivated?

I can't remember any more, i've been here for two years and don't remember any exact questions from my interview.

Would You Recommend
