How it Works

Sales professionals judged students' pitches via a closed-circuit video feed.
Sales professionals judge students' pitches via a closed-circuit video feed.

Contestants receive product information two weeks in advance and prepare for a 20-minute sales meeting with a potential “buyer.” Participants are judged on their execution of the sales process by sales professionals.  

Why Participate

No experience or interest in sales as a career is necessary to participate! It’s a great opportunity to get hands-on experience, network with sales professionals, and potentially land a job interview with one of the participating companies.

I experienced a lot of personal growth during this competition and hope to continue it's momentum into the rest of academic and life endeavors. ”
