Professional U

Am I career ready?

"Because I had no idea what I could do with my major, I decided to visit the Center for Professional Development and Career Experience where I learned about the Career Intensive Boot Camp. I got the opportunity to network with alumni, get my resume reviewed, and go through mock interviews throughout the weekend. One of my personal favorite sessions was the etiquette dinner at Monty’s, where I enjoyed a four-course meal with a straight posture and fancy new (proper) dining etiquette.

What was most impactful throughout the experience was talking to some of the alumni who had such an interest in listening to my dreams and goals. I mean really listened, took their time out of the day to speak with me and guide me on how to make them into a reality."

Professional sales among the best

Bloomsburg University's professional sales program is listed among the nation’s best for professional sales education by the Sales Education Foundation. BU is one of just five schools in the state to be listed with the others being LaSalle, Widener, Duquesne and Temple. BU’s professional sales program, the only program of its kind in the State System, is available as a specialization with a marketing major or as a minor.

BU has a history of success in sales competitions with its student teams. In 2016 BU finished in the top 10 at the Russ Berrie Institute National Sales Challenge and was top 10 at the International Collegiate Sales Competition from 2013-2015. Student teams have also competed at the National Collegiate Sales Competition since 2011. Recent research suggests 60 percent of all business majors and 88 percent of marketing majors begin their professional careers in a sales-related role.
