How does my thesis statement sound?
I need to write a thesis statement on the job of a sales representative( job, needed skills, salary, etc.) how does this sound: Sales representatives need to be driven, outgoing, and persistent. Sales representatives with outgoing, persistent, and driven personalities will not only successfully represent a business and their products, but will also make a major financial contribution to the economy. sorry didnt mean to put the first sentence in there. i copied it from word and i accidently copied that sentence (which i ended up erasing)

The first sentence is unnecessary and can be included with the second, otherwise you sound repetitive. The rest is good!

I agree, combine the two sentences, just make sure in a thesis you have a subject, and an assertion, which is usually shown in an action verb. Which in this case you do have the parts so it is good

Yeah, omit the first sentence. The rest is good because you're making your three points and clearly expressing what you're going to be writing about.

The second sentence sounds good, but thesis statements are only supposed to be one sentence.....so the short sentence before it is not needed. Other than that....sounds good.
