Are you a recent college grad, soon-to-be-college grad, or early career sales professional interested in making great money? Whether you love sports or not (that’s right, or not!) we will teach you how to sell to corporate executives in companies across America. International Sports Management, Inc. (ISM) is the global leader in the provisioning of corporate sports hospitality and ticketing packages with over 20 years of experience, and we are adding sales representatives to our U.S. Corporate Headquarters, right here in Downtown Chicago! Interviews are currently being conducted, with a targeted start date of late-May.

The National Account Executive position will be responsible for new business generation, calling on companies around the U.S. and selling packages to major golf events (U.S. Open, Ryder Cup Matches, The Masters, etc). However, crossover into other markets and championships (such as the College Football Championship, Super Bowl, NCAA Basketball Tournament, Kentucky Derby, and many more) will also be expected.

You would be calling on companies in major cities around the U.S. though this is not a telemarketing job. This is an inside sales position where you will be interacting and building relationships with Vice Presidents, Presidents, and CEOs of multi-million dollar companies. The position will expand into account management in addition to new business generation, along with growth potential for promotion into sales management within the first 8-10 months.

This is the perfect opportunity for recent grads who are ready to roll up their sleeves and get to work in launching their careers in the business world. We are looking for assertive, educated, money-motivated individuals to be a part of our growth and high-performing team. A successful candidate will have excellent communication skills, a positive and energetic attitude, a great work ethic and the ability to succeed within a team environment while making top earnings and enjoying what you do!  Our ISM Training Program will help take your most relevant work & class experience and transition what you’ve learned into success!
