Students explore opportunities with employers at Sales Meet and Greet

The networking event brought together more than 85 students with recruiters from a variety of organizations.

Elon students interested in sales, marketing, customer relations and business development networked with top local, national and global organizations for employment opportunities at the Spring 2018 Sales Meet and Greet on March 6.

The Student Professional Development Center partnered with the Chandler Family Professional Sales Center to host an event connecting students with employers eager to share more about their organization and career opportunities for Elon sales talent.

“The Sales Meet and Greet was a fantastic opportunity to speak with many employers in our field of interest,” said Sam Fisch ’18, a marketing and management double major. “It allowed students to really learn more about companies that we may or may not know about and develop a future network.”

Students also valued the professional development aspects of the event. “The meet and greet was a very beneficial experience, as I had the chance to network with sales professionals, practice my elevator speech and learn about a few of the many different sales paths that I can pursue after graduation,” said Ashley Follenweider ’19, a strategic communications major with a professional sales minor.

The following employers attended the event:

  • Amica Mutual Insurance
