Top businesses frequently contact the Center for Professional Selling to fill full-time and internship positions. These industry leaders often recruit seniors, either one or two semesters from graduation, and look for individuals who have engaged in sales competitions, experiential learning opportunities, or are members of Pi Sigma Epsilon.
To position yourself for one of these rewarding, influential job opportunities, you should engage in an internship your junior or senior year. Many companies offer internships as a way to gauge a student’s potential and fit with the organization. Therefore, treat internships as an extended job interview—the first step toward a fulfilling, well-paid career.
