About NISC

The Northeast Intercollegiate Sales Competition (NISC) going into its 10th year! NISC 2021 will be held as a virtual event. It is a unique opportunity for outstanding students pursuing sales careers to connect with employers from some of the best sales organizations in the nation. NISC offers employers and students multiple opportunities to engage through networking, a tournament-style sales competition, individualized feedback and coaching, skill and leadership building sessions, social media and more.

NISC is different from other competitions because it emphasizes students’ and sponsoring firms’ continual pursuit of learning and development. Through skill building sessions, students, coaches and sponsors will gain valuable knowledge and abilities while building networks that can last a lifetime. Our goal is to provide the foundation for companies and students to meet, learn from each other and launch successful careers.
