The ideal candidate profile
Resilience - Sales is a frustrating job if you're not resilient. Being able to deal with frustrations and knockbacks is a must.
Work Ethic - The harder you work, the better you do. Sales is a great job for a graduate to get in to because you're in control of your earnings, but that means you've got to put the effort in.
Charisma - Sales people tend to be charismatic and confident, you are calling strangers most of the time after all, you need to make them like you!
Competitive Edge - You will be working in an environment where you can see how well you're doing in comparison to others, so target driven and competitive people tend to fare better.
Emotional Intelligence - You will have to build relationships with a massive range of people so emotional intelligence is hugely important.
Money Motivation - Arguably one of the most important things for someone to possess going in to sales. The harder you work in sales, the more money you make. It's a job where you can be making 6 figures within 3-4 years, so it's really key that you have a genuine money drive.
If you think you'd be well suited to sales and you have the relevant skills then don't hesitate to send over your CV to Emily Reynolds at Graduate Fasttrack.
