At P&G, our Sales organization is key to managing the P&G business and our relationships with Canada’s largest retailers. As an Account Executive Summer Intern, you will become a strategy consultant and lead work impacting the largest retailers and the biggest brands in Canada.

We are currently looking for student leaders with strong analytical and thinking skills to join our Sales Summer Internship Program, beginning May 2021. We have internship assignments in the areas of Key Account Management, Category Development, and Market Strategy & Planning.

From Day 1, you will join a comprehensive training program designed to help you develop the leadership and analytical skills needed to become a future Business leader. You can expect to:

· Grow our brands by completing robust business analyses and being a part of our account presentations;

· Learn and apply conceptual selling techniques and develop data-driven analyses and presentations;

· Have selling and account management responsibilities, in addition to leading unique projects that have a direct impact on the business;

· Play an important role on one of our Customer Teams, working directly with the customer with coaching from your manager.

Grow Your Career and Develop as a Leader at P&G

During your internship, P&G focuses on learning more about you, and evaluates if you are the right fit for a full-time position. You will have a mid-term and end-of-term evaluation, which are structured to help you assess your strengths as well as areas for development. Similarly, this is also an opportunity for you to learn more about P&G and understand the wide range of opportunities that we can provide.

When you join Sales at P&G, you do more than “sell”. You act as a strategic consultant, developing business mastery and insights and partnering with our customers to drive growth. Here’s what our former interns have to say:

“As an Account Executive (Sales) intern at P&G, I was entrusted with multiple projects of national scope, each requiring critical data analysis to deliver actionable insights for P&G and our retail partners. I was given the opportunity to hone my analytical storytelling skills through high-level internal presentations and client meetings over the course of my internship. Analytical storytelling is a crucial professional skill which has been an invaluable asset to me.” - Heather, University of Toronto (2019 Summer Intern)


“My Sales internship experience entailed a lot more strategic work than I had anticipated. Last summer, I was evaluating vast amounts of data everyday and identifying insights to make decisions to help our brands and retailers grow. Sales at P&G is entrepreneurial and provides you with the opportunity to manage an entire business. You act as a strategy consultant to your retailer – the business challenges and leadership skills you grow in these roles is what drew me back to rejoin the company as an Account Executive after graduation.” - Fahad, Beedie School of Business (2019 Summer Intern – Market Strategy & Planning)
