The Media Sales institute (MSI) is an intense, ten-day sales training program for individuals who are passionately interested in pursuing a career in media sales. The curriculum is designed to prepare talented individuals with diverse backgrounds for positions in radio, television, cable, print, digital and interactive sales. Industry recruiters will observe applicants present real-world sales presentations for entry level sales positions in media companies. This will be the first MSI to include military veterans (post 9/11), career changers and college graduates.
Why A MSI? The MSI was created to address the media industry challenge of ensuring a diverse workforce. In order to meet this challenge the industry needs a large base of qualified and diverse applicants. The MSI is the best long-term plan to recruit highly qualified and diverse entry-level sales candidates. The MSI is an affirmative and proactive way to recruit future sales executives into the media industry. MSI applicants are pre-screened and have demonstrated a strong desire to pursue a career in media sales.
Who Can Apply? Eligible applicants for the 2016 MSI include recent/post graduates, military veterans (post 9/11) and career changers with an interest in a media sales career. The MSI is open to all majors and working professionals. The MSI is not an avenue for individuals interested in pursuing any media career other than media sales.
Is The MSI Free? Yes! The MSI will be underwritten by the National Association of Black Owned Broadcasters Telecommunications Education and Management Foundation (NABOB) and their partners. Accepted applicants will receive a full scholarship to cover the cost of tuition, books, room and board. Note: Scholarships do not cover the cost of transportation to attend the MSI.
