Frontline Sales Program

The Next Generation of 3M Innovation

  • What makes 3M Frontline unique is that it is an innovative, collaborative partnership between 3M and a small number of universities across the United States. Together, their focus is on sales education and in providing students with robust-learning opportunities to apply the knowledge and skill sets acquired in the classroom to the “real world” work environment.

    The Frontline Sales program also enables 3M to address its needs for attracting a diverse talent pool of “performance ready” entry-level sales candidates, which is reflective of the culture that exists at 3M today.

  • Frontline Sales Interns

    Frontline Sales Internship Program

    Frontline is not just an internship. It’s an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to work for a Fortune 500 company and sell for one of 3M’s 26 divisions in either inside or field based sales position. For the eleven week assignment, participants will spend the first two weeks attending an orientation & training program. Participants will then spend the remainder of the summer selling in a designated assignment for one of 3M’s divisions based in one of five Business Groups: Consumer, Energy and Electronics, Health Care, Industrial or Safety and Graphics. The internship runs from late May until the first week of August. Salary, transportation and housing stipends are provided.

    Position is intended for students that have the aptitude for selling, have basic sales experience and have demonstrated their ability to apply basic selling skills.

    For those students pursuing degrees in marketing and/or business analytics, look no further. The 3M Frontline Program provides internship opportunities in these specific areas as well.
