The students and faculty in the Department of Marketing are in full swing with career fairs, sales competitions, conferences in addition to coursework!
Recently, we held our annual Partners in the Classroom event. This is a special opportunity for hundreds of students to directly meet with over 30 of our local sponsors and partners. Many are sales, retail and digital marketing students seeking jobs and internships. Following the event is our popular Sales Team “Meet and Greet.” This was another opportunity to mingle with sales students in a more informal setting.
The first sales competition of the year was held last week. The Perfect Pitch competition had over 50 judges participate from our partnering companies. The Perfect Pitch is a 45-90 second pitch that demonstrates yourself to a prospective new employer. Over a hundred students participated! Student winners receive monetary awards. Here are the top 5 winners:
Sam Morgan – $500
Therese Merkel – $400
Anna Tracy – $300
Zach Goggins – $200
Kelsey Berchem – $150
