Here’s what you bring:

Post-secondary education and Master’s studies are a strong asset, ideally you have graduated in a major of Sales, Marketing, Commerce, Business Admin, Construction, or Agriculture. If you are still in your 4th year of studies – no problem, let us know and we’ll consider a part-time internship in this program.
We need you to be adventurous and mobile. We may ask you to relocate up to twice: once for training, and once more into a permanent territory in another city or region (Click here to check out our auction site locations.)
