BEFORE you start recruiting collegiate sales talent, it is critical that organizations align themselves with good fit universities.
In order for us to get career opportunities out to the students and alumni who are in contact with the COBI, we will need you to complete and return the position vacancy form to Business Career Programs (BCP). BCP can be reached at 419-530-5400 and firstname.lastname@example.org. Once in the system, the students can search on it and receive an email blast from the COBI and ESSPS. BCP can also assist with scheduling on or off campus interviews, and sales faculty will announce in classes as well.
…the university has a Career Services office as well. That office does not specialize in business students. Virtually all of the business students use Business Career Programs. The university Career Services can be an appropriate supplement if you are looking for non-business students. They can be reached at 419-530-4341 and email@example.com.
Establish a Feeder, Career Path, and Student Awareness – Internships
Your company's brand will be stronger and better compete with other opportunities if an internship and career pathing can be established. With 100% of professional sales majors doing at least one internship (required for the major) and 85% of COBI students doing an internship, it is pivotal to build your brand and pipeline. Internships take place year round and can be full time or part time to get to the 170 hours required for academic credit.
Build Student Awareness and Interest
Events will help you get the awareness and interest needed to identify and screen candidates for your pipeline. BCP handles the Job Fairs, and the ESSPS handles Networking Night and the UTISC.
The Recruiter Catalog can help you to enhance awareness and interest with students by communicating to them using a method they find attractive and accessible. A 24/7 virtual career fair where sales students can view branded recruiter videos/presentations to learn more about sales careers at various organizations. Links to online applications and web sites are provided as well as polling and question submission that can be directed to the recruiter’s contact person/email of choice. Core and Premier packages available. Annual subscription. Call 419-530-2978 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing. Watch a demonstration and learn more about the Recruiter Catalog.
Class speaker spots are scheduled in advance based on course relevancy; Corporate Partners are encouraged to meet our students in class (Gold and higher partners are guaranteed invitations).
Connect with Student Organizations
Student organizations are another great way to interact with the students since they are looking for speakers and projects/cases to work on. A list of student organizations and their leaders can be found online. Most professional sales students are in Pi Sigma Epsilon (PSE), Alpha Kappa Psi (AKP), Young Entrepreneurs Society (YES), and the American Marketing Association (AMA).
Brand Awareness and Affinity with Lower Maintenance and Higher Impact - Scholarships
Awarded to the most talented and promising students, this prestigious scholarship program will alleviate the financial burden of college for students and their families, recruit and retain top students to build the pipeline of sales professionals for participating organizations, enhance the visibility and respect of participating organizations, increase enrollments for the ESSPS/UT, and elevate the profession of selling.
