Note:  The health and safety of our community as well as our employees is paramount. Due to the current COVID-19 conditions and out of an abundance of caution, most ISM Staff have moved to remove work environments. Until further notice, all interviews will be conducted via phone. Our projected in-office training will be October/November, obviously dependent on local health conditions. If you will be relocating in the future or are not available in that time frame for full time employment in our Downtown Chicago Office (located in the Loop on Michigan Avenue), please check out our website for future employment opportunities:  www.ism-usa.com

International Sports Management (ISM), the global leader in the provisioning of corporate sports hospitality and ticketing packages for events all across the world, is celebrating our 23rd Anniversary by rolling out an expansion of our national sales team right here in Chicago at our U.S. Headquarters.  Corporate sports participation is exceeding record numbers and is projected to continue to do so into 2021, 2022 and beyond, and we are looking to hire a total of five (5) new sales positions with a targeted start date of October/November.

The National Account Executive position will be responsible for new business generation, calling on companies around the U.S. and selling packages to major events such as the NCAA Basketball Tournament, Ryder Cup Matches, Super Bowl, College Football Championship, U.S. Open, and many more. If you have experience in B2B Sales or have the desire to learn how to sell, we should talk! 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 6-8 months.

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!  Recent college graduates are also encouraged to apply, as our ISM Training Program will help take your most relevant work & class experience and transition what you’ve learned into success!

The position will focus on every aspect of the sales process. Our clients use ISM to host and entertain their top accounts, prospects, and incentive their top performers. 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.

This is the perfect opportunity for individuals wishing to gain experience and launch their careers in the business world.
