Unique Events Showcase the Next Generation of Sales Professionals

University sales competitions attract top sales students who refine their classroom skills in exciting competitive atmospheres. Sales competitions vary in format: role-play, team selling, speed selling and “elevator pitch”. These competitions are opportunities for recruiters to meet the future generation of sales professionals and see them in action.

SEF features a list of major competitions in each edition of the Annual magazine. SEF defines a “major” competition as one that accepts student competitors from multiple universities. SEF’s Sales Competition feature provides dates, locations, website addresses and information on each major competition.

Sales competitions also provide opportunities for sponsor companies to network directly with competing students. Many competitions include corporate mixers, career fairs and networking receptions. Some competitions feature golf tournaments and theme park tickets as added benefits.

Click on the “View all Events” tab to the right for a list of sales competitions. You can also find a detailed list of the 2020-2021 Sales Competitions in our 2020 Annual beginning on page 44. Both digital magazines feature direct links to the competitions and include more information. Our Annual is a valuable resource for recruiters, students, parents, academics and professionals alike!
