Held in McKinnon Hall, the event drew over 80 students interested in finding internships and full-time employment in sales, marketing, customer relations or business development. Students were able to meet and talk with recruiters and alumni from a diverse selection of local, national and global companies.

“The Sales Meet and Greet was helpful to get me in front of employers, to feel comfortable pitching myself and finding the best questions to ask,” remarked Maggie Miniati ’20, a marketing major and leadership studies minor. “It allowed me to narrow my job search and get a better idea of the types of roles I’m looking for to transfer my past professional and class work to a job post grad.”

The following employers attended the event:

•  Amica Mutual Insurance
•  AT&T
•  Bandwidth
•  Call Box
•  ChannelAdvisor
•  CHG Healthcare
•  Dell | EMC
•  EF Education First
•  Gartner
•  GlaxoSmithKline
•  John Galt Staffing
•  Lenovo
•  Omnicell
•  Paycom
•  PepsiCo
•  The Select Group

Chandler, owner of Chandler Concrete Company, 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.
