Hull College Senior Wins Speed Selling Award at National Sales Competition

Hull College senior Jalecia Hill, a BBA with a financial services concentration, won the Aflac Speed Selling Award at the National Collegiate Sales Competition (NCSC) on Mar. 5 at Kennesaw State University.

She was part of the five-member team from Augusta University competing against more than 70 other college teams at the event and won first place at the AFLAC table.

The objective of the speed selling event is to give a 90-second elevator pitch to one of the competition’s sponsors, in this case Aflac, in order to secure an appointment for a job interview in a conversational, non-scripted way through effective communication and professionalism.

Kristy Hardesty and Caroline Grant from the College’s Professional Sales Club also competed in speed selling, while Ajay Pandey and Tumah Ngoh competed in the role play competition.

The NCSC offers the opportunity for top students to sharpen their sales skills in a highly competitive environment and provides a venue to network with business professionals, peers, and sales faculty from around the globe.

“The mission of the NCSC is to contribute to the professionalism of the sales career by working with other university professors and industry to accomplish this mission,” said Dr. Terry W. Loe, professor of marketing at Kennesaw State University and executive director of the NCSC.

The NCSC allows sponsors to observe, engage, and recruit these talented individuals through competition streamed videos, an on-site career fair, and promotional resume books.
