Shadowing a Gannett Company, Inc. Sales Representative | Faculty Externship Presentation
The Faculty Externship Program at Ball State University is designed to give faculty the opportunity to work with Indiana businesses which require skills representative of those taught by the faculty in their classes. The idea of the program is for faculty to be able to share their expertise with a selected business as well as observe the business practices to determine if there might be new information, techniques, and/or technologies that faculty can incorporate into their classes to enhance the educational experience for their students. The faculty externship experience takes place over the summer and includes 40 hours of on-site learning, a written report, and a final department/college presentation. As part of the Faculty Externship Program, I had the opportunity to shadow the top sales representative from Gannett Company, Inc., a leading media and marketing company with outstanding local-to-national consumer reach. This presentation will focus on information obtained from my interaction with the sales representative and sales manager from Gannett’s Indianapolis newspaper company, The Indianapolis Star.
