University of Tennessee – Center for Career Development


Industry: Sales

The Southwestern Company’s mission is simple: To be the best organization in the world at helping young people develop the skills – and the character – they need to achieve their goals in life. We build people: the people who sell our products; the consumers who benefit from them; and the people who become members of our team of employees. We build people. And those people are building a great company.

Students who participate in the program represent approximately 350 colleges and universities from the United States, Canada, and Europe. Our products are sold to families in their homes by these students during their summer breaks. These students are independent contractors and have the opportunity to run their own businesses by purchasing products from Southwestern at wholesale and selling them to customers at retail.
