Have you ever wanted to run your own business, but didn’t know where to start? Our mission is to empower students to run their own business on campus, with the ultimate goal of supplementing their formal education with real world business experiences. As a Summer Sales Partner Trainee, you will have the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of a start-up by building your own book of business! You will be responsible for executing everything from customer contact, research, marketing, pricing and account support, to closing the deal. While targeting organizations and businesses in your community, you will learn sales strategies and receive advice directly from a mentor who has done it before. The responsibilities will be vast and overwhelming at points, but will also be extremely profitable, educational and provide unparalleled experiences not found elsewhere.

The Summer Sales Partner Trainee internship is designed to be a hands-on development program to prepare the intern for our official Sales Partner position. Upon completion of the internship, the Summer Sales Partner Trainee will graduate to an official Sales Partner. The internship will consist of daily classroom learning in the morning, followed by hands-on real-world sales training in the afternoon. The classroom portion will cover a wide range of topics, including but not limited to, product research, decorating techniques, sales strategies, social media marketing, e-Commerce implementation, negotiation, customer service and personal development. The intern will have the opportunity to learn from a mentor who has done it before, while also collaborating and networking with other Summer Sales Partner Trainees.
