Why choose a career in sales?


In the ever-changing jobs market, sales jobs are blazing a trail, both for employers and potential employees. Few other jobs offer the chance to start at entry level and progress to massive heights. With flat hierarchies, infinite possibilities for progression and big money to be made, there’s all the reason in the world to start your career in sales. Telesales is the backbone of the market, with an ever-growing base of entry-level specialists flying the flag for the industry. Contact Centre companies such as Zevas provide initial and continuous training and development for their telesales teams.

With the right attitude and a keen interest in learning how to get people to say “yes”, anyone can succeed in sales, regardless of background or education.

Problem-solving is a huge part of fulfilling a sales role and an important transferrable skill.  Those engaging in the business of sales from the ground up learn the important practice of getting a customer to a positive conclusion. That’s not to say it’s an easy skill to learn, but once you’re on board it will be a lifelong bonus.

Sales roles also lead to the highest job security possible. Provided you hit targets, your market value is ensured. You are an important part of the team and your skills ensure the whole operation stays afloat and grows.

The big win for this line of work is the major thrill offered by sales roles. The kick out of hitting or exceeding targets and working with a great team you can believe in and reaching goals is something you won’t get from a regular job. Yes, it’s sometimes difficult – but the challenge and the resulting pay out from succeeding are well worth the pressure.

Sales then, and a career starting in telesales in particular, is the way to go if you want to earn big money in a challenging and rewarding job.
