The Sales Program got me a job because I was able to speak with PepsiCo at the sales career fair and have them answer my questions about the internship application and interview process which helped me get the job in the end! ~ Lizzy ‘20
The Sales Program does two things: we teach students and we provide jobs. We teach students to sell products and ideas by creating corporate-sponsored selling interactions for them to execute in real time. These interactions can be in person, over the phone, and through email. Our goal is to prepare students for that first full-time sales position. We provide jobs by connecting students to over 50 companies per semester through Career Fairs, Classroom Visits, and other mentoring opportunities. We are run by three passionate and energetic professors, who are supported by a student team of graduate and undergraduate students. This team ensures we are purposeful in our efforts to teach and provide jobs.
