"By participating in the Mavs EDGE program, I received applications from highly qualified applicants. The interns I have hosted from UTA have truly been "self-starters". They are prepared well in advance and presented several marketing ideas as soon as they stepped into the office. Their passion and enthusiasm was evident from the very beginning. The support from staff was very helpful and the most beneficial aspect of the experience. By hosting interns at Ray Givens State Farm Agency, we were able to gain a fresh perspective on ways to reach our target audience."
