Professional Sales: Careers that matter

Are you looking for a career path that offers:

  • Excellent future career growth and high job security
  • Continuous personal development
  • Freedom to take initiative
  • Compensation and promotional rewards for performance
  • Ability to impact a brand and company you believe in
  • Opportunity to help people and companies be more successful

The heart of every company is its sales team. Without customers or clients, few organizations can survive. In addition to providing clients and customers with the quality products and services they need and want, strong salespeople create jobs for everyone else within the organization. Find out how you can start your career in this essential function at this exciting event.

This event will feature

  • Break out sessions featuring Career Panels with industry professionals.
  • Draw prizes for participants given out every hour. Participants must complete their stamp card to enter and be present to win.
