What are the chances of a 17 year old getting hired as a car salesman?
I need a job. I was wanting to be a car salesman. I think i would make a great salesman. I have took 21 honors classes throughout my High School career. I go to college and high school at the same time now. I own and operate my own ebay business. what chances do I have at getting hired on at a car dealership as a sales person? I have never sold cars, and I have no employment history.

if you know someone in the business then its worth a shot....but you have to sell cars to make money. you might be better off getting a few years experience at a job that involves customer service like being a checker at your local food market
