I will say that getting a job out of college is dependent on two things:
  • Who you know. You can submit 100 blind applications on Indeed, and you may get a call back on 2-5 of them. Literally. But if you submit 100 applications to companies that employ someone you know, you're likely hear back the majority of the time. Connections > resumes.
  • What real-life experience you have. College degrees, especially in business, don't mean as much as they used to. They're a dime a dozen. Employers are looking for real-world experience. Internships and entry level jobs are what really matter to recruiters and hiring managers.
It sounds like this opportunity would connect you to people who may eventually be working at places you want to apply to. And it could give you real-world experience adding credibility to your resume.

I'm a business student. Yesterday, during class, some students presented their marketing agency. It's a junior enterprise, which means that it's a no-profit startup, run by students. They work in social media marketing, copywriting, market research and event management. They presented it because they are recruiting new students.
I think that this could be a great opportunity to meet like minded people and to develop skills in business. Of course I wouldn't be paid for that. The areas in which I can apply are marketing, sales, HR and communication.
Would you consider applying? In which area?
