Student Guidelines

  •  Marketing majors with a sales concentration who are classified as juniors or seniors are eligible to enroll in MKT 4392 for three hours credit for approved sales internships.

  •  Students interested in a sales internship should fill out the internship inquiry form, and have it sent to Mr. Wayne Noll, sales internship coordinator. He can also be reached by email at an23@txstate.edu if you should have any questions on internships. 

  •  The sales internship position must be approved by Mr. Noll.  The postings on our website are pre-approved. If the sales internship is not posted on our website, the student must submit a job description on company letterhead.  Responsibilities must be beyond the scope of the "average” part-time or temporary job.  Internship credit is allowed only for students who secure approval for their internship prior to beginning work with their supervising company.  

  •  The sales internship must be scheduled for a minimum of 10 weeks and 200 job hours during the fall or spring semester or 8 weeks and 160 job hours during the summer. The sales internship may be either full-time or part-time.

  •  It is the intern's responsibility to schedule his or her work hours around the class schedule.  Special registration considerations are not provided.

  •  Students may enroll in only three additional courses or 9 hours during a fall or spring internship or one additional course each session during a summer internship. 

  •  The sales internship may be either paid or non-paid.  This will be determined by the student and the supervising company.

  •  The student intern must submit all required reports in a timely manner to Mr. Noll

    • Sales Intern Profile

    • Three Monthly Progress Reports, including: an analysis of the history of the company; mission, vision, goals and objectives; marketing strategies; competitive analysis; management and leadership styles; human resources practices; the student's job responsibilities and learning objectives for the internship; and other topics.

    • Supervisor Evaluation

  •  The student intern must attend an orientation session and schedule a midterm visit with Mr. Noll and the intern’s supervisor.

  •  The orientation session, sales intern profile, monthly progress reports, and midterm visit count approximately 50% of the course grade; and the supervisor's evaluation counts approximately 50%.
