The Virtual Sales Career Fair is an opportunity for students and alumni to talk one-on-one with potential employers in hopes of securing a job with them. The Industry Insights event is a panel conversation between students and TCU alumni in various careers that will help them learn how to be successful in the media and communication field.

Students can register for the event through neeley.tcu.edu/showcase. Students from all majors are welcome to attend.

The TCU Virtual Sales Career Fair is offering students and alumni the opportunity to meet with potential employers from over 100 sales organizations in many different industries in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

Some of the industries include healthcare, entertainment and media, technology and finance. The companies attending include Sewell, AT&T, Uber, JPMorgan Chase and more. 

Attendees are able to sign up for sessions with certain employers they have an interest in. Students can register for the events via Handshake, which is available to all students through their TCU login.

Junior supply chain major Tessa Anderson said she plans “to talk to a few specific companies about internship opportunities next summer,” she said. Anderson also said talking with them one-on-one would give her a “better shot at interning with them.”

The TCU Sales Center, founded in late 2019, said that it has a 100% industry placement among graduates. It also has accomplished about 3.1 job offers per graduate. The Sales Center offers custom research and branding solutions for organizations across a wide range of industries and marketing domains.
