  • “The field sales representative position at Rothsay was a great experience. I left the position with hands-on sales experience, as well as a professional independence that can only be gained from working on the road individually. Along with this, Rothsay opened my eyes to an interesting and exciting industry with which most people are not familiar.”  Jake, Marketing Management Co-op Student (Summer 2013)
