Believe it or not, everyone conducts sales in one form or another. Some folks state that they hate sales, but let’s explore this. True, the definition of Sales is “a transaction between two or more parties in which goods or services are exchanged for money or other assets.”
If you want to take your spouse to a specific restaurant, you’ll most likely highlight the atmosphere/food/location/net. If you’re a Dr., you must present treatment to a patient and lay out the pros and cons of the treatment or process. Perhaps a Factory worker is going for promotion; they need to convince their Boss / HR person that they have earned the raise and that the company will be better off. When you’re dating someone, there is a lot of Sales on both sides, “is what you’re offering what I’m looking for?” You want to get your teenager to do a chore… nevermind they’re teenagers.
I’m in the process of building a resumé and career coaching course, and I’d love to hear your comments. The techniques I will lay out in the system will be slanted toward Salespeople. I believe anyone in any profession can improve their resumé and career outlook by utilizing these pointers.
So everyone is a Salesperson. Some of us love chasing commissions. Others, like my Flight Attendant Sister-in-law, can’t understand the appeal of a cold call.
Your Resumé is your first impression to a potential employer. We find that 90% of all resumés have at least one, if not multiple, mistakes. Our coaching service will help you with an impressive first impression.
