Pacific Office Automation Inspires Sales Careers through Pacific Northwest Sales Competition Sponsorship

The West’s leading provider of office solutions sponsored the recent Pacific Northwest Sales Competition, encouraging college students to pursue careers in sales.

Pacific Office Automation proudly sponsored the inaugural Pacific Northwest Sales Competition in Portland in late April. This competition, hosted by the Oregon State University Sales Academy, welcomed college students from across the region to showcase their skill to a judging panel and vie for a cash prize.

For the competition, students exercised their selling skills in real-world scenarios. Pacific Office Automation employees participated as fictional buyers of office equipment and services, giving a preview of what working in sales would feel like for the students.

Judges named Eric Weiss of the Oregon State University College of Business as the first-place winner. Second and third place were awarded to two students from Chico State University.

Pacific Office Automation looks forward to welcoming a new class of sales representatives to its teams this coming summer, especially recent college graduates. If you or someone you know is searching for entry-level jobs, explore the career opportunities available at Pacific Office Automation.
