Embarking On A New Job As A Sales Person, And The Various Problems Faced By Sales People In The Sales World.

September 27th, 2010

There are lots of New careers offered for people to consider doing when they leave school or university, or even just as a change to their present job. One area available, which includes many hundreds of different Careers, is sales. Embarking on a job within sales opens up a wide range of opportunities for people. Almost every single business out there is about selling products, and persuading people to purchase your own products over the products which are offered by your main rivals. This means there is a large amount of scope for different Careers within a sales environment, and you might end up working for almost any organisation. Here we are going to take a look at just a small selection at some of the Careers which are accessible to people, so hopefully if you are searching for a New career this article may be of some assistance to you, and help supply you with a few ideas of the many Careers which are in existence within the sales environment.

Firstly, within sales, personality and charisma are pretty important, so some individuals are genuinely more suitable for the sales role than others. Some people, such as myself, lack charisma, and sometimes find it challenging to start conversations with new people. People who are good at striking up rapports and conversations with new people on a daily basis are the type of people who are more suitable for sales Careers. You may probably have noticed when shopping in certain shops, especially where large amounts of money are spent in one or two transactions, there will always be a friendly sales assistant on hand to provide you with the help and assistance you require. Typically in sales there will be targets to be met, however, so not only do you need to be approachable and friendly, you also need to be persistent in order to convince people to make sales. Of course, you aren’t asked to stand there and insist that people make purchases from your store, but a great sales person will see early on the right buttons to push in people, and lean them towards making a purchases without ever once making them feel pressured into a purchase. That is a major point to becoming a successful sales person.

As mentioned, due to the nature of sales you might end up working in just about any industry in which you have a big interest. Myself for example, my main interests lie in computer games, but also electronics and things, so TVs, blu-ray players, basically big flashy gadgets. So for me, if I were looking at New careers within a sales environment, I would be looking to work somewhere such as GAME, or Comet, so I could work beside products I already have a solid knowledge of. Similarly though, if you have an interest in fashion, there are several high-street sellers with which career development is possible. You might hope to go for something rather more high value, such as selling cars in a car showroom. With sales, as long as you have a flare for it, you can get a New career in just about any area that attracts you as an individual.
