Do you often find yourself saying, "I can't believe I just did that??" or "I'm such an idiot" because of a small detail that you either did not notice or chose to ignore?A salesperson that forgets meetings, makes spelling and grammar mistakes and has a hard time staying organized will not find success in sales.

What is your resume telling people? I know what you are saying - "My resume is stellar!! It is telling them about all the successes and accomplishments with each role I have held throughout my career"...but what is your resume telling people about you?!

With today's volatile job market, are you coming across as desperate or aggressive in your job search? Desperate times call for desperate measures. However, at what point do you cross the line of desperation and no longer appeal to the company you have worked so hard to impress. Sales professionals are competitive, strive to beat out their competition, and do not like to hear no for an answer.

Focus on what you want and work backwards from there: 1. Quality of Life:Many people do not think about the effect a job will have on their quality of life. What will the opportunity cost you? Will you be able to spend the time you want with friends and family?

Dear Recruiter, I recently started searching for a new sales opportunity. I have one year of experience working at a fast paced and rapidly growing software company.
