WHY HIRE AN INTERN?
Hiring a sales intern is a unique opportunity to bring on a candidate to work in the role for a short period of time to determine if they are a fit for a full-time offer in the coming year(s).
Summer interns also provide inexpensive support for activities such as prospecting, building pipeline, creating marketing materials, and collecting data.
The best part is, working with CSS to find summer interns is a completely free service to all parties involved!
What to expect and how to get involved
CSS will provide your internship opportunity with student members currently interested in sales. These students will act as additional support on entry-level initiatives and have the drive to be successful. Students will have 8 - 12 weeks of availability to complete the internship. To get involved complete the employer form on this page by end of day on March 4, 2022. A CSS team member will be in touch to confirm your request and discuss next steps.
Working with CSS
CSS will collect and organize student applicants' resumes and contact information. Following the student application deadline, the CSS team will send you the student candidate profiles and you decide how to proceed. Following the end of the internship, surveys will be sent out to collect employer feedback.
How does the internship program work?
Once you fill out the application on the CSS site, the CSS national team will compile all of the resumes and applications submitted by students for you to browse. From there, you have the contact information you need to reach out to students of interest to set up the interview process however you see fit.
By what date do employers have to decide to participate?
We request that all partnering employers have their applications submitted with a link to their internship description if possible by March 4th at 8 pm PT.
Where are CSS Students located?
The majority of our active chapters are currently located in California, but we are expanding nationwide. We have individual members and affiliates in states across the country that are eligible to apply.
How will I know if the students are available in my employer's location?
When the students apply, they will specify whether they are looking for full-time or part-time work (or either), remote or in-person opportunities (or either), and which cities are accessible for them to work. This information will all be available to you.
How much does it cost to participate in the summer internship program?
Involvement in the internship program is free! Our goal is to grant you access to high quality internship candidates and grant our students access to outstanding internships.
Will I be charged a recruiting fee if I hire an intern?
No! There are no fees or costs associated with our summer internship program.
Do students have to pay to be part of CSS?
No! We provide all of our resources to students at no cost, to ensure that students from all backgrounds have equal access to our education, networking, and development resources.

Where can I access full-time candidates?
