Southwestern Advantage is an American direct sales company that since 1868 has offered university students a thorough entrepreneurial and sales training by field experts followed by a summer in America selling books door-to-door.
Why should students come to your company for an internship or work?
We believe that when we expand our comfort zones, we learn more, gain more, and make a bigger impact. Communication skills, success principles, and empathy are best- developed face-to-face. Student Reps learn how to deal with judgmental types, neutral types, and supportive types—all of which are common in every line of work, as well as life. The amount of emotional maturity that is developed through going door-to-door is unmatched by traditional summer jobs or office internships.
