Dardis Student InternshipBookmark This
DescriptionThe Dardis Academy is the ultimate gateway from classroom to career. We provide exceptional leadership training to young entrepreneurs through real-world business experiences—giving students the competitive edge they need in their careers and life. We are often referred to as the “Real World MBA”. There is simply no other job opportunity or internship program for college students like ours. Our professional training helps students learn what it takes to run a successful small business. The Dardis Academy offers real-life experiences from the moment a student is accepted into the program. A summer with Dardis is a game changer, and there is no other experience that looks as good on a resume.
Students participate in the Academy (end of May or early June), which is a week long, skills-based training session in Des Moines, IA or Chicago, IL. Topics covered include, but are not limited to: presentation skills, selling skills, professional presence and image, business writing, and time and territory management.
Following the Academy, students return to their hometown ready to apply their skills. They are fully trained and know how to manage their schedule, approach prospective customers, demonstrate professional communication skills, deliver an impressive presentation highlighting our products features and benefits, ask for the business and gain referrals. Our customers appreciate the knowledge and tools our student reps share with them on professional image and wardrobe management. Our unique business model gives students an edge from start to finish.
ResponsibilitiesStudents are empowered to work independently during the day while having a manager and team to provide ideas and support. Dardis provides sales and marketing material, product catalogs, and order forms to make each presentation highly professional. Students are given the necessary skills and tools in order to best represent themselves and Dardis.
