What happens during a sales meeting?

The weekly sales meeting topics include upcoming sponsorships, partnerships, upcoming events, and valuable industry information. I made the best of these meetings by taking notes and listening. If I didn’t understand a particular piece of the conversation I would write it down. That way the next time it was mentioned it usually would trigger a memory.

What advice would I give to future interns?

  • Never be late. Most importantly, never be a minute late to a sales meeting!
  • Be assertive when asking for work. During downtime ask if another department can use your help.
  • Think to yourself constantly. How can I make someone else’s job easier? And just do it.
  • Proofread all emails, documents, etc; before sending to your supervisor.
  • Speak and ask questions at the right time.
