  • Deadlines for national teams are September 18 at 5pm for the fall team and January 18 at 5pm for the spring team.  For those selected to tryout (typically only done for spring team), those times will be sent out shortly after the application window closes and will be based on the submitted availability in the application form.  Tryouts are January 22+23 for UTISC and February 1 for NCSC.
  • Deadline for Internal Sales Competition (ISC) is October 5 at 5pm.  We may close applications earlier if we have enough talented students apply prior to that.  Students who apply and cannot compete due to the limited number of competitor spots will serve as workers for the ISC to help run the event.  ISC workers also receive networking opportunities (see signup for details - link coming soon).


Many members of our Sales Competition Team got their start in the Internal Sales Competition (ISC).  The Internal Sales Competition is a fun and challenging way to develop your skills and engage with businesses.  Get noticed!
