Career & jobs

From our correspondence...
Any sites out there that help in finding a great sales job?

Why not try In the career and jobs category we show you 8 different job bank links for sales jobs. Better yet, pick up the phone and call the head of sales in the company that you would most like to work for and tell them that you would love to work there in sales, and will make them a hero if you do. You are in sales. So prove that you can sell, by selling your way in. If you do that successfully and professionally you'll get my job and the job of almost every client I have ever worked for.
