You will learn more about yourself in a summer with YEAA than you will anywhere else. You will learn the answer to these questions and more. I ran a $38,000 business and profited an average of 19% for the entire summer. This is something that I never would have even thought I had the capabilities to accomplish but now I can look back and say, “I did that.” I genuinely believe you are making a mistake by not seizing this opportunity and making the most out of it. This intern-ship is a foundation to the rest of your career in business and you will gain so much hands-on experience that you wouldn't get from any other internship being offered.
Student Painters was an incredible experience from start to finish. From interviews and training in the winter and spring, to making sales and painting in the summer. I finished out with an 85K business profiting around $17,000. I learned how to deal with employees and customers in different circumstances, ultimately building my personal experience and my resume. The company has a great environment and offers tons of great incentives. I attended a dinner at J Alexanders, a boat outing, and am going on a cruise to the Bahamas. Overall it was an incredible experience and I would do it again.
Student Painters has allowed me to fulfill a lifelong dream of mine, to run a successful business. I have grown more as an individual, entrepreneur, leader and student more than ever before in my life. Student Painters has no ceiling on how much you can succeed and how much profit you can make. In my case running a $45,000 business while profiting more than $5,000 my sophomore summer. I was provided with a solid business model platform, told what I needed to do to suc-ceed and the rest figured itself out. I’m not trying to sugar coat it, this was definitely the hardest challenge I have yet to face, but the reward of my hard work paid for itself. Without Student Painters I would have no where near the business experience and knowledge I have today. This is an opportunity that not many people get to say they went through. I feel I have a great ad-vantage over my peers after successfully completing my summer with Student Painters.
