Learn to Sell
The Perth Leadership Institute is looking for motivated sales interns interested in honing their skills as a professional sales person in the leadership field. Experience real life sales situations to build confidence and skills to prepare you for your career, in sales or in self promotion.
|"...the experience I had with Perth Leadership helped me to work on my weaknesses and turn them into some of my greatest strengths. Phone sales help you with your communication and interpersonal skills, learning to establish rapport and finding clients' needs within a short time frame. The internship program also helps you gain confidence in yourself - everything you do after the program just seems a lot easier. But the most important thing you learn from the experience is networking. The people you speak with will become important tools for career opportunities in the future." - Jan Michael Uy, University of Florida student||
You will gain valuable experience as you work first-hand with seasoned executives from the business world. Our small business environment means that you will have close contact with senior business people – the type of contact you just don’t get when working for large companies where you can get stuck in the hierarchy.
You will initially start with our sales team where we will train you to introduce Perth's innovative products and services to large and influential companies within the United States. After your initial weeks, if you have what it takes, you will be given an opportuinty to stand on your own and assist in building a pipeline of customers.
What's in it for you? Valuable training which will help you in job searches and in impressing your future bosses, a highly credible resume with real experience working with sophisticated high-level executives in the world's largest corporations, free assessments and coaching in the revolutionary Perth leadership approach which could jump start your own career, the possibility of high bonuses, a reference letter and, above all, the satisfying experience that comes from being in a new and exciting field with a successful sales person.
|" In this day and age, many internships are synonymous with busy work. Buying coffee, making copies, hour upon hour of simple, mundane tasks. A right of passage that usually concludes with nothing more than a slight resume improvement. But the Perth Leadership Institute takes a different approach. From the moment you walk in the door, you realize you're a member of the team, an asset in the dynamic selling process. Perth equips interns for a career of any kind, as the program aids in establishing networking and relationship building skills. But the experience doesn't stop there. Interning at Perth also vastly improves your public speaking ability, specifically as you gain confidence in your role. A future job interview or classroom group presentation won't seem nearly as daunting after having spent time at Perth dealing with senior executives at some of America's top corporations. Lastly, Perth Leadership genuinely cares about its interns. You're given the opportunity to experience the Perth model for yourself, and in doing so uncover your own financial signature and tendencies. At the end of the day, anyone can experience an internship. But if you want an internship experience, look no further than Perth Leadership." - Kyle Rodgers, University of Florida student|
