Frontline Sales

3M Frontline Sales Program for students
  • 3M Frontline Sales Program interns

    Frontline isn’t just an internship. It’s a 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. Our program is unique: It’s an innovative, collaborative partnership between 3M and a small number of universities across the United States. Together, our focus is on sales education and providing students with robust opportunities to apply knowledge and skill sets acquired in the classroom to real-world work environments.

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

    For the first two weeks of the eleven-week assignment—from late May until the first week of August—participants will attend an orientation and 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 our five Business Groups: Consumer, Energy and Electronics, Health Care, Industrial, or Safety and Graphics.
