Which Sales Job Is Right For Me?
Sales careers have come a long way from the days of door-knocking and leaflet dropping. Today's sales jobs vary more than any other career option.
To carve out a successful career in sales, you'll need a confidence that doesn't quit, and the ability to make even the most undesirable product or service be the perfect solution to your consumers. You'll more than likely receive some training in your new sales role, though a natural born salesperson has a certain indefinable ability to just hit the ground running. Great shoes maybe.
So, you've decided you can cut it in a sales role. But where do you fit best? Let's take a look...
