Careers in Sales include field sales, retail sales, technical sales, account management and business development. Sales executives need outstanding people-skills to offer advice, answer queries, and introduce new products to existing and potential clients. Companies depend on sales staff to boost income and profits and a high level of performance can lead to high commissions and bonuses.
A career in sales is a good choice for you because you thrive in a high pressure environment and you're motivated to work hard in return for high financial rewards. You may need to work long hours but the transferable skills of public speaking, budget management and time management developed in a sales career make switching companies or industries an on-going option, and would give you a head start in an entrepreneurial venture. Business revolves around sales and you have what it takes to drive a business forward.
