“As a first-generation Latina I never considered pursuing a career in sales until I ended up taking classes in the sales program at MSU Denver. My professors set me up for success when it came to pursuing a career I would thrive in. They gave me the tools, skills, attitude, and resources to make me stand out against others. I am happy to say after college I landed in a sales career where I am thriving so much and I owe it to the passionate individuals in the MSU sales program!”

“There is no doubt that MSU Denver’s sales program set me up for rapid success both during my time in school and after graduating. It is such an amazing opportunity to sharpen your sales skills, practice interviewing, network and get recruited, and everything in-between by being part of this hands-on program. Joining the ProSales team was a game-changer in my effort to not only find my dream job, but to excel in it; the invaluable things I learned and the recognition I received will stay with me forever!”

“I always knew I wanted to go into sales with sales being the majority of job opportunities after graduation. MSU Denver’s selling program, Pi Sigma Epsilon, and amazing faculty were influential in teaching me the value of helping others and building relationships – the heart of sales. Now I have the opportunity to do those things in my sales career!”
