What is your current job?
I'm an Inside Sales Representative at Corptax.
How did UW-Parkside help prepare you for this job?
The Sales Certificate provided me with the knowledge and confidence to execute each step of the sales process and as well as challenge me to overcome buyer objectives. From role-playing in class and competing in two national sales competitions, I was able to apply the sales techniques and curriculum taught by experienced professors to real life sales situations that I encounter every day in my current position at Corptax. My experience at UW-Parkside allowed me to successfully start my career in sales with the necessary skills to contribute from day one.
What would be your advice to student at UW-Parkside currently pursuing a CBEC degree?
My advice would be to make the most of your college experience whether it's taking on a leadership role on campus, attending a career fair, completing an internship or volunteering. Challenge yourself and take advantage of opportunities provided to you so you can build a resume that employers seek, and develop a skill set needed in today's workplace.
