As salespeople, we have to deal with a certain amount of uncertainty in our jobs. No matter how close a deal is to closing, in the back of our minds, we know that it’s never too late for a deal to completely fall through at the last second. We’ve all experienced it, and we’ve all been left feeling devastated and frustrated because of it. We’ve all had great sales success and unfortunately, some let downs, but I have learned that I have accomplished much more success when I recognize whether a prospect is good or bad for business in the early steps of the process.

You know how some people claim to be a “people’s person”? Well, I have found that being a people’s person is a great and difficult skill to foster. Unlike dealing with products and technology, being a people’s person involves dealing with a range of personalities every day. But I have also found that the truly gifted “people’s person” has harnessed the ability to be a successful customer service rep and a salesperson.

The size of a company is certainly important to think about when considering a new opportunity. Different factors come into play when considering a job, like culture, benefits, commute, work-life balance, growth, compensation, training and sustainability. I wanted to take the time and break down some of these factors and talk about how they play into a small company versus a big company.

It may be too far-fetched to claim that sales makes the world go round, but is it really? Think about it, without sales (and marketing), a company has no one to advertise and sell their products and services, and therefore cannot make money or grow. That’s the simple answer to the simple question as to why sales are essential any company’s growth, but truthfully there’s more to it than that.

My team and I were recently asked (told) to assist in filming a video presentation for Treeline. We all took turns in front of the camera. Some of us were good, others not so much, but we all put our best foot forward and presented in the same manner we present to our clients every day. When we watched the footage we all had the same reaction. “Do I really look like that?” “I don’t sound like that, do I?” “What is that weird thing that I am doing with my mouth?...do I always do that?”

The job market is picking up, at least in the world of sales, and more and more job seekers are asking for advice. The advice they seek is based on positive economic changes, specifically around the increasing job creation and the high demand of talented sales professionals. Job seekers now have more options and are being courted by typically more than one company. Even though this is all positive, multiple options for a career move can create confusion and the need for advice.

Job seekers, I know that you have probably already received endless advice on social media. You read articles on how to set up social media sites, how to create a personal brand, which sites you should be using, and what you should and more importantly should not be sharing on social media sites.You’re told that potential employers are searching for you on social media sites and that it can make or break you landing an interview, so since we work in the recruiting space we decided to conduct our own survey.
