Dream Internship Spotlight – Samantha Anderson, Yelp

Eller PDC Coordinator Student Stories

Samantha AndersonSamantha Anderson is a Marketing Junior who will be interning at Yelp this summer.

As a sales intern for Yelp, I will be responsible for making phone calls to local Phoenix companies and setting up appointments with the account manager. As an intern, you spend quite a few weeks just training on how to make successful sales calls!

The application process was very different from other positions I had previously applied for. First, I submitted my resume, like most, and then following that, I had a few screening phone interviews. If those run successful, the next step is to go through to the final Skype interview. It’s a series of talking to three recruiters while they asked me role-play scenarios. This was very different from the traditional behavioral interview questions, but it allowed me to show off my personality more to the recruiter!

I’m looking forward to learning more about sales and getting this amazing experience under my belt. It will also be great to be around other interns who are looking for the same thing and getting to meet people I probably wouldn’t have met otherwise. Overall the experience sounds fun, exciting, and rewarding!
