Simple Car Wash is looking for Penn State students to join our team! We are a waterless car cleaning service that goes directly to the customer and are hiring students to help us generate our brand awareness and sales in State College.
WHAT IS A CAMPUS SALES GURU?
Plain and simple, a guru is a Simple Car Wash campus rep. As a guru, you are the face of our company at Penn State. You're well-connected. You're involved on campus. You know a good time when you see one.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
You connect us with potential customers. It's easy! In a fraternity or sorority? On a sports team? Have friends? (We know you do...) All you have to do is use the people you know to connect on campus, spread the word, and make some sales.
WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME?
We are well aware that all college students looking for jobs tend to want 2 things: extra spending money and something to put on their resumé. Gurus make commission and get marketing and sales experience. Looks like a win-win. And there's always bonuses and swag.
Donuts and Dilemmas offer an informal forum for students to discuss and consider ethical dilemmas in the professional workplace. Company representatives meet with students to share personal ethical dilemmas, as well as to discuss ethical challenges in the industry.
The informal setting enables company representatives and students to engage in an open dialogue, outside of a formal interview room. This professional development opportunity offers students an inside look at a business workplace.
