EDUCATIONAL TOUR SALES ASSOCIATE

Summary:

Corporate Travel is seeking Sales Account Managers to assist in conducting field sales for Educational Tours which are produced in-house and marketed to Middle School and High School groups. Over the course of 50 years, Corporate Travel has developed unique expertise in destinations, both international and domestic, which augment the classroom curriculum – Chicago, New York, Washington, D.C., Nashville, Italy, Ireland, Spain, and many more. The target market is comprised of educators – teachers, principals, and superintendents – who make such decisions on behalf of their students and the paying parents. Core to the position is client management; Account Reps remain with the educator (group leader) until successful completion of the tour. As educators tour with new classes year after year, our salespersons continue to earn full commissions each year.
