How did Internships.com help you land your internship at BDBG Marketing?

I used Internships.com to apply to positions close to home within my field of study and have only found success from the service. I am so happy that I was able to get the position as Marketing Intern at BDBG Marketing, and can only attribute this to Internships.com.
