Here is what PSE Life Member Phil Musson has to say about his experience at The Principal. “The External Sales Development Program is hands-down one of the best sales opportunities out there for college graduates. It provides the perfect combination of intensive training, high expectations, and the opportunity to get out in the market to sell. You won’t just be thrown to the wolves—during your training you will develop personal relationships with Regional Sales Managers and Regional Vice Presidents who are fully invested in YOUR success. As a PSE Life Member, I’m honored to work for an organization that aligns so closely with the values I have learned during my involvement in the fraternity. This is a company that cares about doing the right thing, and will care for you as an individual employee. The work is exciting and the opportunities are endless!”
