UNH Foundation Opportunity

Even with the excellent education that the University of New Hampshire and the Paul College provide, the job market is particularly competitive. The great news is that sales jobs across many industries are readily available. Statistical evidence suggests that starting the sales training process early, as early as sophomore year, will best prepare students to land, stay, and succeed in their first professional job.

You have the opportunity, through philanthropy, to invest in these up and coming leaders. Your investment will help train, groom, and mentor business savvy students with a drive to succeed.

This program is open to any University of New Hampshire student as are the current sales academic curriculum and the UNH Sales Club membership. The vision is that a finance major, communications major, or sports studies major can be "subject matter experts" in their specific disciplines and learn how to sell investment opportunities, cloud-based software, or sponsorships for a NBA team. We have proven this already by placing sales graduates at Fidelity Investments, Oracle, and The Boston Celtics because they graduated from UNH with sales skills and aced their interviews.
