Look for opportunities where you can develop sales skills like cold-calling, client interaction, negotiating, and closing deals.

Some examples include: student caller for alumni donations, fundraising for student clubs or community organizations, lead generation and prospecting for a local business, or brand/product representative.

A summer job at a restaurant or retail store is another great way to gain valuable skills like customer service and time-management, which will help prepare you for a sales career.
