Eller PDC Coordinator Student Stories

Courtney Cayton is a Marketing major set to graduate in May 2020.  This summer she interned for Medix as a Scientific Recruiting Intern in Chicago, Illinois.

How did you get this internship?

I got this internship by attending a Career Fair last year!

What was a typical day like?

A typical day consisted of cold calling around 80-100 candidates, learning more about what they are looking for in a job, and taking them through the process attempting to place them with a client.

What was your favorite part of the experience?

My favorite part of this experience was the people I met, the networking that occurred, and the introduction I had to a sales position.

What did you find most challenging about your internship?

The most challenging part about my internship was learning that you cannot rely on people. Even if I placed a candidate with a client, I still had to make sure they showed up to work every day and were being respectful to their manager.

Did your internship employer provide housing or transportation assistance?

No, my employer did not provide any housing or transportation assistance
