Fall Seminole Sales Showcase


Seminole Sales Showcase


The semi-annual Seminole Sales Showcase, held October 6-7, brings together FSU students and the FSU Sales Institute's corporate partners for two days of competition, networking and student interviews

The event features Role-Play and Speed Selling competitions for FSU Sales Team members and Advanced Sales Techniques (MAR 4415) students, with partners serving as buyers and judges, giving them a first-hand look at FSU students in action. The career fair is widely promoted and open to all FSU students, with more than 400 students in attendance. The first day's events wrap-up with an evening networking event for FSU's sales team members, Advance Sales Technique students and partners.

The second day of the Seminole Sales Showcase consists of the final competition rounds and optional one-on-one interviews. The FSU Sales Team will attend an awards luncheon where the top-placing student competitors are recognized. FSU Sales Institute partners are invited to attend.

Interviews can continue throughout the day.

The Seminole Sales Showcase is open to FSU Sales Institute Partners, who are in good standing by Monday, August 15, and participation is included in the annual partner fee. The first day's lunch and evening networking reception are also included in the partnership fee. All other meals, including the awards luncheon, and hotel and travel expenses are the responsibility of the partners.

To confirm participation in the Seminole Sales Showcase, please register by noon on Wednesday, September 14. To inquire about becoming an FSU Sales Institute Partner, please contact Shannon Young at styoung@business.fsu.edu.
