Smart College Visit Announces Campus Rep Internship

BLACKSBURG, VA, October 18, 2011 - Smart College Visit announces the launch of SCV Campus Reps, an internship program providing real-world experience for current college students interested in social media, writing, and marketing. The SCV Campus Reps will relate first-person, fact and research-based accounts of life on their campus, visitation tips, and event information to share through SmartCollegeVisit.com.

"The SCV Campus Reps will be writing about academics, social life, and campus visit programs for their college. The content they provide will be a great complement to the current information on Smart College Visit," said Kelly Queijo, president and founder of Smart College Visit, Inc. "This is an opportunity for students to write for an award-winning business, hone their social media skills for the workplace, and build a portfolio of work."

Emily Picklehaupt, a Midlothian native and senior marketing major at Virginia Tech, is one SCV's first Campus Reps. Emily's first SCV blog post shared her experience at Business Horizons, a recruitment fair held at Virginia Tech earlier this month. In addition to activities on campus, Emily will also write about her experiences as a college student and travel tips for families planning to attend spring college visitation at Virginia Tech. Emily's blog posts can be found on the Virginia Tech page of Smart College Visit.

SCV is actively recruiting students from universities across the country to be Campus Reps. This unpaid internship provides valuable opportunities to gain experience, be published and may be eligible for course credit.
