Getting a Sales Job without Sales Experience

“I’m not in a Sales Job now and don’t have sales experience, but I want to get into a sales position!

Applying for a Sales Job with no Sales Experience?

“Every opportunity is asking for sales experience, even the company I work for now is saying I need sales experience. If I want to apply for a new sales position, what do I do?”

Sound like you?

Sounded like me too when I first started.

True story! - when I first started out, I nervously applied for a sales position with a fortune 100 company and they were looking for a sales person with experience.

I wasn't exactly what they were looking for, the odds were not in my favor. Fortunately, I was prepared and passionate enough to win over the initial interviewer.

Five interviews later they gave me the chance to prove myself. And one year later they named me rookie of the year.

Needless to say, they decided to reduce their minimum age requirement for future employees.
