Many professionals enter the workplace fresh out of college each and every spring. Each graduate is filled with knowledge and skill, and every single one of them wants to contribute here in the great Northwest. Bachelors and Masters aside, starting a career is a huge challenge with a multitude of directions.
Have any of you growing professionals considering a sales career? It is a wonderful professional alternative. If you are, visit our Dale Carnegie Training site. Read some of our Dale Carnegie information and material online and pick up the classic How to Win Friends and Influence People.
If you have never thought a sales profession was a solid choice or your educational background did not include sales, a sales foundation is not necessary. We all are salespeople. Think about it for a moment. Everyone sells. We sell ourselves to win arguments. We often sell ourselves out of bed. You sold yourself to get into your favorite college. Selling makes the world go around. In every conversation, ideas are exchanged. In work meetings, presentations are made. These are the times that you sell opportunity and change and all of its advantages.
A sales career is a very simple human process but it involves complete dedication and obligation. Selling indeed is a dynamic and defined process. Check out selling for a living. Our advice is not to try sales, but to do sales. Learn as much as you can about it before finding that new position. Watch others. Find an adviser who has experience and is willing to share what works and what does not work.
The sales and relationship tools that Carnegie Training has to offer provides an array of learning experiences. Check out all our resources before you graduate. We wish you well in your new career.
