Santa Ana, CA – Over a dozen students from the University of California, Riverside, California State University, Fullerton and Chapman University are learning how to provide effective e-marketing solutions for SMBs at mUrgent Corporation (http://www.murgent.com).

The internship program, launched in March 2003, is under the supervision of mUrgent’s Director of National Sales, Chris Conte. Each student is assigned a marketing territory and taught to educate companies in that area about how EMPACT, mUrgent’s email and wireless marketing solution, can help them increase contact and build stronger relationships with their customers and increase sales.

"Our goal is to make mUrgent interns superior marketing and sales professionals by putting them in direct contact with companies that need e-marketing help," says Boris Bugarski, president and CEO of mUrgent Corporation. "They start speaking with prospects right after their orientation and initial training sessions, so they quickly learn what real business situations are like. By the time the finish their four-month internship, they’re ready to start careers, because they have already been dealing one-on-one with mUrgent clientele."

"I’ve always enjoyed marketing studies, but I also wanted a fresh approach to learning the skills. The mUrgent internship puts me face-to-face with real people in real companies," says Perez, a marketing major at CSUF who entered the intern program in April 2003. "I spend 10-12 hours per week and make dozens of telephone and office visit contacts with company prospects and clients. Besides, I receive a commission for every new mUrgent client I generate."
