Students in Baylor's Professional Selling Program are making an impact in Fortune 500 companies - even before they graduate.
Senior ProSales majors Madeline Giering and Bryan Baker interned in 3M's Frontline Sales program in the summer of 2012. The pair is featured in a Frontline marketing campaign as 3M (#102 on the Fortune 500) advertises to recruit the next wave of sales interns.
"Bryan and I are excited to be featured in this Frontline campaign," Giering said. "Over two months, the 3M Frontline Sales internship solidified my decision to pursue a career in Professional Sales. As a part of 3M's Stationery and Office Supplies Division, I had ownership of 10 accounts, an incredible supervisor and coach, and experienced what it felt like to be a valued team member."
Giering and Baker have accepted offers to work at 3M upon graduation in December 2012. Giering will be working in 3M's Automotive OEM Division and Baker will be working in 3M's Stationery and Office Supplies Division.

About the 3M Frontline Sales Initiative
The 3M Frontline Sales Initiative is an innovative, educational partnership between 3M and educational institutions. The program was designed with the intent of increasing the amount of sales education content with partner university business schools. The goal is to elevate sales as a discipline and as a profession in order to attract a high-potential, diverse student population. By providing students with the necessary academic education as well as with opportunities to apply their learning, through such programs as internships, students are "performance ready" and positioned for success as they begin their professional careers. In addition, through research grants and academic fellowships, universities and 3M can stay ahead of emerging trends and models that influence "frontline" facing sales professionals and the customers that they serve.
