Using Your Degree
Professional sales is the most common entry-level position for new graduates in many companies. Our alumnae have found rewarding sales careers in many industries, including technology, pharmaceutical and medical device. They include:
- Nicole Sheedy, strategic sales account manager at Delta Air Lines
- Seon Anderson, account manager at W.W. Grainger
- Jennifer VanWinkle, territory sales manager at Ecolab
- Jenna Bowman, public policy intern at the Alzheimer's Association
- Kelly Minke, sales consultant at Paychex Inc.
According to the U.S. Labor of Statistics, the need for experienced sales managers is expected to grow faster than the average for other jobs in the next decade. People who have what it takes to succeed in sales — technical acumen, emotional intelligence and self-motivation — are in high demand.
