Event contributes to 100% job placement for sales students.

More than 100 student candidates met with more than 20 leading Cincinnati companies on November 5, 2014, at the Center for Professional Selling, promoting job placement into professional selling positions. The next Sales Expo will be held in the Spring of 2015.

“UC is a leader in preparing students for an ever-changing sales landscape, leading to 100% job placement for our graduates,” says Jeanne Frawley, director of the Center for Professional Selling. “The Sales Expo is one example of how UC connects our quality candidates to careers.”

Participants engaged in seven-minute speed networking opportunities, career development programming, and general networking with partner organizations including Habegger, Legion Logisitics, AXA Financial, Northwestern Mutual, and TEK Systems.

 “This was another successful Sales Expo for us,” said one company representative. “We made several great connections, which we plan to pursue for positions.”

 The Center for Professional Selling was established to create day-one ready candidates for the extensive number of client-facing careers companies offer. Networking opportunities and role play experiences in state-of-the-art sales labs prep students to ramp-up faster and turnover less than their non-sales educated counterparts.

“Studies show that sales students save companies an average of $180,000 in the first two years of employment,” according to Frawley. “We rely on these programs and our partner companies to help keep that momentum and mutually benefit from the efforts.”
