How to Get your Foot in the Door of Sales Jobs

Generally a sales job will require at least two year’s experience in the sales field. But how do you start off with a job in sales if you don’t have any experience? First you need to be very persistent. Don’t give up the hunt just because you get turned down by one or two employers. Your persistence might ultimately be the key to landing you a job in sales, once the employer sees how determined you are.

Let the employer known that you have done your homework and some background research into the company, and explain to him why you want to work there and why you think you would be a good member of the team.

Sell yourself. Show the interviewer how persuasive you can be. If you can’t sell yourself then you are not going to be able to sell their product.

Where to Look for Sales Jobs

Newspaper advertisements – many companies will advertise their vacancies in the local paper.

Online job boards – job boards are a popular place to find a wide range of sales jobs locally and nationally. This is also a good place to look if you are looking to relocate.

Recruitment agencies – there are a number of sales recruitment agencies throughout the United States. These can be found online.

Job fairs - there are always a wide range of employers and recruiters at jobs fairs looking for prospective employees for their sales jobs.

Send out your resume – if there is a particular company you would like to work for, send them your resume and a cover letter explaining why you want to work for them.
