    About This Course

    Does the prospect of pitching an idea, presenting to the class, or interviewing for an internship feel daunting? Want to get better? What about 10 times better? In this course, you’ll discover tangible ways to improve your sales techniques—in other words, how you interact with others to achieve the outcomes you want. Whether you’re navigating a room full of peers, interviewing for a job or internship, or giving a presentation, clear communication will elevate every scenario. With the toolbox of skills and lessons provided in this course, you'll boost your confidence and your tactics in a snap.

    In this course you will:

    • Understand key sales concepts and how to connect with others
    • Create your own toolkit of sales techniques, stories, and strategies
    • Gain insights from key business leaders and successful entrepreneurs
    • Develop a portfolio to share with potential colleges or employers

    Sample Schedule Sessions 1-5: Persuasive Speech and Presentation Skills
    Start your journey into persuasive speaking by learning how to identify and connect to your target audience. Then, set yourself up for success by exploring the three critical elements of presenting with panache: preparation, persuasion, and performance. You’ll compile a checklist of steps that ensure a magnetic performance, and you’ll put those steps into action during your practice presentation. Remember—practice makes permanent!

    Sessions 6-10: Job Interview and Business Proposal
    Once you’ve laid a solid foundation in persuading and presenting, you’ll turn your attention to the art of conversation. In preparation for your mock interview, you’ll learn what types of questions to expect, how to differentiate yourself from other interviewees, and the formula for proving your undeniable value to a potential employer. Following your mock interview, you’ll conclude the course with entrepreneurship essentials and discover the power of selling in teams. Introducing more smart people into a sales pitch scenario creates more room for bad habits, but learning how to navigate a complex set of competitive talking points will give your team the edge they need to create separation and stand out from other prospects.
