I heard about Southwestern Advantage as a freshman at UCF in the spring of 2016. Jake and I both rowed crew at the University of Central Florida. He brought me to hear more information about the summer internship from a man who had 16-years of experience with the company. What appealed to me about the program were the travel opportunities, peer group, and having the right to say "I've completed the most difficult internship a college student can choose to do." After hearing that it was 80+ hours, door-to-door, straight commission, out of state, I was a little skeptical at first and was afraid of what my parents might think. But, after hearing personal stories about what all had been gained through those challenges from my interviewer and calling other students who have completed the program in the past, I was in. It was drawing near to the end of my freshman year and everyone one around campus was encouraging me to get involved and find internship opportunities. Choosing to accept my position to work with Southwestern Advantage ended up being the most impactful life decision I've made, besides going to college. I've now helped hundreds of families with education in South Carolina, North Carolina and Kentucky. Personally delivering all the orders every summer is one of the most rewards parts of the whole summer experience.
The summer is HARD. And that is WHY it's so rewarding. As book men/women, we are unapologetically part of the toughest millennial movement to change the world.
Keep investing in the growth of the students that participate in the program - just as you've done for 150+ years.
Spend time speaking with other students that have completed one or more years in the program. Contact me with questions anytime and see what my experience was like on Facebook: www.Facebook.com/AlexTheBookmanSzymanski
