“From this program, I learned how to be a sales communicator. The Media Sales Academy taught me strategy, industry terms and the position I need to be in to seal a deal. I now know more about the business side of media and how the entire channel operates due to the role of the sales team.
Finally, I learned how to work in unity with other team members to create a credible pitch presentation. Dividing research, agreeing on material to put on slides and splitting who communicates what during such a pressured presentation is a skill that I have not cultivated anywhere else.”
“The Media Sales Academy was not just another conference for me. It was an eye-opening experience that transformed me into a well-rounded specialist in broadcast sales. I was taught essential tools and techniques that helped advance my career in sales unlike any other internship or course that I have taken. I was able to immerse myself in a room full of passionate students like myself and learn from powerful leaders and professionals in the industry.”
“The Media Sales Academy taught me the fundamentals of media sales. These lessons included how to communicate with diverse audiences, maintain relationships and interpret content. I say with full confidence that the terms and skills that I learned from this program were the reason that I scored a summer internship in the Advertising Sales department at Sony Pictures Television.
I was able to begin my internship prepared to navigate the industry and build on my foundation of knowledge from this program. My preparedness and success in that position led to a job offer at the end of my internship. Overall, the greatest lesson that I learned from the Media Sales Academy was the confidence that I have what it takes to succeed in advertising sales.”
