Welcome Warning, and Instructions

Subject: Welcome Warning, and Instructions (to be toned down--[tbtd])


Welcome, Make More Money, Hawaii! intern! You are here as a result of your fine efforts in our grueling, patents-pending, to-the-death MMMH! intern screening process. Congratulations. The fact that you have held on dearly to your life means that you may now participate in (guess what?) a grueling, patents-pending, to-the-death, 16-week MMMH! internship. If you survive the sixteen weeks, you will crawl back to school with improved writing and research skills and with a new appreciation of Hawaii's competitive business environment.

About Our Consulting

Make More Money, Hawaii! is a marketing research consultancy that specializes in qualitative primary research and secondary research. Because MMMH! brings in more money than you can possibly imagine, it has developed an expansive internship program designed specifically for students enrolled in University of Hawaii community colleges. MMMH! has a dual purpose, then, that includes 1) making more money for itself and for its clients, and 2) contributing to the improvement of business education in Hawaii.

Your coordinator will assign specific Tasks & Assignments for you or your team to complete. Follow the task link on the left to discover the details of the tasks. Be certain to review the Requirements section for each task or subtask before you embark on your solution.

Our research and design (R&D) assistant has gathered Resources for you to reference as you complete the Tasks assigned. If you have suggestions for additional resources, please post them to the Forums area.
