CBA Day Postcard

What’s it all about?

You will take on the role of an Edward Jones financial advisor. We will provide you with background information on a prospective customer and some very basic financial products. You will have eight minutes to “meet” with the prospect and convince him or her to consider Edward Jones for his or her financial needs. Your goal is to set up a second appointment to go over the specific investments to be made. We will provide you with the information you need to complete the role play successfully.

Four winners and two alternates will be chosen. Each winner will receive a $500 scholarship, and each alternate a $250 scholarship, from Edward Jones. Winners and alternates will also be considered for a spot on the K-State Sales Cats Sales Team, which travels all-expenses paid to other universities to compete in national sales competitions.

The Edward Jones Sales Competition is open to any Kansas State University undergraduate student on the Manhattan campus, regardless of major or college. You must not graduate before spring 2017.
