Event Sales - Early Career

  International Sports Management, Inc.
  Posted/Updated: 06/12/24

Job Summary

Upcoming / Recent Grads (and College Athletes), & Early Career Women and Men!

We are looking for select candidates! Applicants – please be IN PORTLAND as interviews are being conducted now. Note: this is an in-office position, not remote, located in our Portland office on the waterfront!

Please read the entire ad before applying to make certain everything sounds like a match for you!

International Sports Management (ISM) is the global leader in upscale corporate hospitality and ticketing programs at major sporting events like the Kentucky Derby, U.S. Open, Ryder Cup, and many more. Our clients are executives with the biggest companies in the world. We got here by putting our customers and our amazing team first.

We are excited to find the best Inside Sales Executives for our Portland Office. Successful candidates will be responsible for new business development. This starts with “cold” outreach through calling (this simply means you haven’t spoken to someone before – it’s how many of the biggest companies in the world bring on new clients!) but we teach you how to “warm” the call using your personality and communication skills very quickly. Your targets will be the top executives within the organizations you are calling on. Promotions come from within, including into Sales Management with fast-track roles. This is not a “telemarketing” nor a “customer service” position; job seekers searching for a role in those capacities won’t find this a match.

If you love challenges, are motivated by the hunt for new business, want to make great money and advance your career, but aren’t afraid of hard work, or failure, then we want to meet you! Remember, your background helps define where you are, but where you want to go and having the initiative to get there is what's most important!

You will:

  • Learn how to sell to executives (C-Suite, President, VPs) throughout corporate America
  • Deliver our value proposition clearly and with enthusiasm
  • Drive sales activities including proactive outreach to prospects, develop qualified leads, set meetings, maintain your sales CRM
  • Have the opportunity to make great money AND travel to select world class sports events

We provide:

  • Comprehensive training
  • Ongoing mentoring
  • Base salary + commission + bonus, uncapped
  • Bonuses, both cash & prize (monthly, quarterly & annually)
  • Bike room, on-site gym, locker facilities
  • Company medical/dental plans and 401K enrollment
  • PTO and major holidays off (4 weeks paid time off each calendar year)
  • First year average range of $55K-$75K+ (range includes base + commission); Year two $80K+
  • Growth opportunities into Sales Management / National Accounts
  • Great corporate culture and community volunteerism

What you’ll bring:

  • Outstanding verbal and written communication skills
  • (Some) Sales experience (B2B preferred, not just customer service)
  • Excellent problem-solving skills
  • High motivation to succeed and growth minded / promotion oriented
  • Ability to explain how a deficiency in one of the above categories won’t hinder you to succeed

We look forward to speaking with you soon!
