Do you want to be in charge of your own schedule?
Do you want to make a substantial income?
Do you enjoy making a genuine connection with others?
Are you self-motivated?
If you said YES, then sales might be a great place to launch your career.
But what does being in sales require?
Good listening skills, resilience, and a strong work ethic for starters. Your major and GPA are less important.
Come hear a panel of sales professionals answer your questions and find out what this career is all about.
We’ll have sales folks from the financial, logistics, business services, and recruiting industries here to answer all your questions, such as:
What’s the difference between inside sales and outside sales? What type of training do you get? What’s the difference between selling a product and a service?
