Cold Calling Competition
Students participating in the Spring 2023 CSS Cold Calling Competition will have a scheduled time to make one live cold call to someone acting as a potential buyer. The competition will take place from 4:00 - 7:00 PM PST on April 11th and April 12th.
Thousands of dollars in prizes!
First Place: Coming soon!
Second Place: Coming soon!
Third Place: Coming soon!
You will schedule a 15-minute time slot with a sales coach to make your cold call. The cold call will be done by logging into a Zoom link with the camera off to simulate not being able to see your buyer.
You will be in the Zoom waiting room and when your buyer is ready, your buyer will admit you into the Zoom room and will greet you by saying “hello” as if your buyer just answered your cold call. The role-play begins immediately.
After the call ends, you may stay on the Zoom link to receive live feedback from the mock buyer. The session will be recorded in order for the judges to review the cold call and select the winners.
Winners will be announced on April 19th via email and highlighted on CSS social media accounts. The first-place winner's cold call will be shared on the CSS website.
