Kennesaw State Students: Volunteer At The 20th Annual National Collegiate Sales Competition
NCSC


Toward the end of every college student’s career, there is always one question that follows us around: “What are you going to do after college?” While most of us want to avoid this question, we usually can’t. We often go with the safest answer, which is something along the lines of, “I’ve started applying to jobs and researching the companies that I hope to work for.”

In reality, we can all attest that this isn’t always the most truthful answer, but it’s what we’re expected to say. What if I told you that you could answer this question with confidence and purpose? That would feel pretty amazing, wouldn’t it?

I know that you can, you just haven’t been taking advantage of the opportunities at your school. Kennesaw State University has one of the best professional sales programs in the entire nation, one that is all about changing the perception of sales. Even if you aren’t majoring in professional sales, you can still certainly benefit from the events they organize.

One of these events is the National Collegiate Sales Competition (NCSC), which is held every single year, typically at the beginning of April. The competition features over 35 companies and contestants are mainly undergraduate students who navigate through a series of rounds representing a specific company, this year's is Gartner. Stephanie Carvajalino and Megan Colapinto will be representing Kennesaw State University in this year's competition.

While registration has closed for contestants, students still have the chance to get involved. Volunteers are still needed, and plenty of perks come with freeing up your schedule for a few hours from April 3rd - 6th. All volunteers will receive FREE food and merchandise, but probably the most valuable thing is the networking experience. With notable companies in attendance, this is the perfect time to put yourself out there and connect with like-minded individuals. Not to mention your resume will be sent to several Fortune 500 companies.

When I spoke with Dr. Terry Loe, Co-Director of the Center for Professional Selling, he mentioned that many business students have trouble grasping the professionalism aspect that comes with their respective majors. There is only so much that your classes can prepare you for, but nothing compares to the lessons you learn outside of the classroom. Networking is a very important lesson that more students need to become comfortable with, no matter how uncomfortable it may seem at first.

Students can sign up to volunteer HERE.

Go ahead, take advantage of this amazing opportunity, you’ve really got nothing to lose.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
