What is the Ambassador Program?
The Ambassador Program was created to educate students on the unique benefits of sales as a discipline and as a career and also to encourage participation in the Competition. Our Ambassadors are the heart of the Competition and the first point of contact for our competitors.
In 2017, we are going to employ 160 students nationally across 80 schools. Each team will be tasked to bring in 50 submissions per school between October 3rd, 2016 and January 8th, 2017 for a total of 4,000+ students in the Competition’s 3rd year.
The program this year will have 3 components:
1. Set up the GCSC booth at the beginning and end of the program (Ambassador Kits will be provided with zap banner, table cloths, pens, postcards, posters, etc.)
2. Hold at least one workshop on campus (I.e: How to sell yourself, How to craft a 30 second elevator pitch, The highest paying jobs you’re not even considering, etc.) that is designed to help students put their 30-90 second video pitch together
3. Arrange at least one class visit on campus
Beyond the 3 expectations above, the time commitment is whatever you and your team would like it to be. We’ve put together a competitive compensation plan that will allow you to control what you are rewarded.
