Getting out of your comfort zone

"While despite not being very involved in high school, I still managed to form a tight niche of friends; but I still yearned to belong to a group that made me feel bigger than myself.

Unfortunately, I consider myself virtually talentless — I can’t sing, I have two left feet, and I am pretty much the most uncoordinated person you will ever meet. So if I wasn’t in school, I was found working part time at Rite Aid. Once I graduated, I made a promise to myself that college was going to be different — I would do more than just work, go to class, hang out with my friends, and watch Netflix."

During my freshman orientation, they mentioned an Activities and Involvement Fair where student clubs and organizations would be highlighting what they were about. I was so excited! This was the perfect opportunity for me to keep my promise — and a few days later, that’s exactly what I did.

Professional sales among the best

Bloomsburg University's professional sales program is listed among the nation’s best for professional sales education by the Sales Education Foundation. BU is one of just five schools in the state to be listed with the others being LaSalle, Widener, Duquesne and Temple. BU’s professional sales program, the only program of its kind in the State System, is available as a specialization with a marketing major or as a minor.

BU has a history of success in sales competitions with its student teams. In 2016 BU finished in the top 10 at the Russ Berrie Institute National Sales Challenge and was top 10 at the International Collegiate Sales Competition from 2013-2015. Student teams have also competed at the National Collegiate Sales Competition since 2011. Recent research suggests 60 percent of all business majors and 88 percent of marketing majors begin their professional careers in a sales-related role.
