Hankamer School of Business to Host Marketing and Professional Selling Career Fair This Month

March 21, 2014

By Shelby Blue

The Hankamer School of Business’ Professional Development Program will host the Marketing and Professional Selling Career Fair March 26 from 4-6 p.m. on the 5th floor of Cashion. This discipline-specific career fair takes place each semester and features a broad variety of companies, including Fortune 500 companies.

Students attend this career fair in search of jobs and internships. Underclassmen use this opportunity to begin building their personal brands and to gain experience networking with business representatives.

The Marketing and Professional Selling Career Fair has been experiencing rapid growth in attendance and corporate interest the past five years. An anticipated 150 to 300 students will attend the upcoming fair. Nine companies participated in fall 2009, and there are 50 companies registered to attend this semester.

“The Center for Professional Selling moved toward a proactive corporate relations model over the past five years,” said Andrea Dixon, executive director of the Center for Professional Selling. “So we are leveraging a CRM-based approach to tracking corporate involvement. At the same time that we were growing our capabilities in this area, the market for entry-level sales roles also expanded. The U.S. Department of Labor predicts companies will lose 40 percent of senior talent by 2016, so we are seeing the beginning of that market activity.”
