Thank you to Sean Dwyer for speaking to Fred Hoyt’s Marketing 339 class in November about experience in sales!

Sean shared his experience: “Ultimately I was down there to talk about my journey from being in their seats at IWU to transitioning to a career in people interaction. I discussed that their ability to blend a strong work ethic with the empathy and passion for people would transition anywhere, at any company in a sales position. I really stressed visualizing what makes them happy and surrounding themselves with like-minded people. Not just in their career pursuits, but in life.”

Great job influencing fellow Titans, Sean!
