NDSU senior Jesse Maier was honored as a “school champion” during the fifth University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Great Northwoods Sales Warm-Up, held Nov. 10-12. Maier, a business administration major from Bismarck, N.D., was recognized as the highest scoring individual from NDSU in the competition.
The Northwoods Sales Warm-Up, which attracted students from 16 schools in nine states, is described as a “development event that will warm up student interest in sales as a profession.” During the competition, students deliver two, 20-minute sales presentations to a buyer, which are evaluated by a panel of sales professionals who view presentations via cablecast at another location.
Mike Krush, assistant professor of marketing, was the NDSU team coach. He said three students from the NDSU College of Business participated in the event – Maier, April Ausk-Nesemeier and Ryan Veldman.
“When the students weren’t competing, they connected with corporate sponsors and recruiters at the career fair, and attended a series of professional development workshops,” Krush said. “This is the second year that NDSU has participated.
Maier received a trophy and $150. More information on the competition is available at http://www.uwec.edu/cob/sales.
