CONSIDERING WHAT TO DO AFTER GRADUATING?
Sales is often an overlooked career option for graduates. Opportunities for promotion, cross training, travel, and a flexible schedule is more than most jobs can offer you.

THE MOST IMPORTANT SOFT SKILL.
A career in sales will train you to listen, speak, negotiate, and persuade - the building blocks of interpersonal skills and the type skill that transfers over to any industry. If there is people involved, then the ability to sell will set you apart from the your peers.

All of these goals require sales skills - aka people skills. Once you get over the idea that sales is beneath you, you begin the journey of building this critical skill.
