The Elon Sales Meet and Greet attracted 49 students interested in sales, consulting, marketing, relationship and account management, and business development roles. The students represented 13 majors, from Marketing to Policy Studies.  

The Chandler Family Professional Sales Center and the Student Professional Development Center co-hosted the Feb. 25 event to provide students the opportunity to connect employers interested in hiring Elon talent for internships and full-time employment.

“As a senior getting ready to graduate in May having the opportunity to network is truly invaluable,” said senior Kaitlin Welch. “Elon did a great job inviting a variety of companies to attend and I think I made some meaningful connections with employers through the event.”

The following employers attended the event:

  • Amica Mutual Insurance
  • ADP
  • Call Box
  • CHG Healthcare
  • EF Education First
  • Gartner
  • John Galt Staffing
  • MassMutual NC
  • Omnicell
  • Paycom
  • Politico
  • Prometheus Group
  • Relias
  • SAS 
  • TransPerfect

The next Sales Meet and Greet will be held in fall 2019.

Chandler, owner of Chandler Concrete Co., and his family, promotes professional selling and sales management, provides high-quality instruction to both students and sales executives, and conducts research that advances the field of sales.
