Looking for bright, driven graduates to take your business to the next level? Look no further. Our students are eager to apply the latest theories and real-world experiences to advance your reach and reputation. 

We look forward to discussing ways you can connect with our students and recent graduates or partner with the center on a project to achieve solutions for your business. Contact Danielle Wheat, the center’s outreach coordinator, to attend the Sales Career Fair or judge a sales competition—two of the best ways to interact with top students.

Recruit Students

Contact the university’s Career Services to set up a recruiting trip to meet our students and recent graduates, who average 12-18 months ahead of their peers at other institutions.

Sales Competitions

Each Fall and Spring Semesters, the Ball State Sales Team competes in mock head-to-head and development role plays. Each student competitor has 15 minutes to sell a product or service to a buyer, who is leader in the industry. The 2020 Fall Sales Competition will be virtual and held on November 2nd starting at 9:00am. 

In January 2019, students at Ball State University took part in the 2nd annual, internal sales competition aimed at identifying student winners who will represent Ball State University at national level sales competitions. Learn more.

Sales Career Fair

The center hosts the largest annual Sales Career Fair with more than 70 companies and 300 students and alumni connecting about jobs and internships. Our students are considered 12-18 months ahead of most new hires, so employers often find valuable additions to their teams. Many connections made at the fair lead to longtime careers and partnerships. This Fall, there will be a virtual Sales Career Fair for just Ball State students and the Center's Partners. It will take place on October 27th.  Learn more.
