I have a job interview with them as a mortgage sales consultant. It'd be my first job out of college. Leads given to me every day, no cold calling. Base and commission, benefits, etc. Any tips, hints, suggestions for the interview? Is it even a good job? Thanks!
I jus was wondering if anyone that is familar with the paper industry if you have any sales tips or jus some tips in general
With the election a little while's away now. I just wanted to know what are some positive or negetive influences Sarah Palin's had on the people.
I'm getting ready to start taking some online classes. I've narrowed it down to 3 majors.
Can someone tell me out of the 3 listed what would be a better choice. What types of jobs could I do with each? I want to Major in something that I can actually use and find a good job with.
The guidance counselors at school have provided CareerCruising.com, but it hasn't been very insightful. If you can help me, then it'd be much appreciated!
I left my current job because this past week, I got two job offers. Both of which are a much better fit for me than where I was. Both have very significant advantages over one another, so here I am asking Yahoo for third party unbiased input.
The first opportunity is a recruiting position at an IT staffing firm. The second is with an insurance general agent (basically wholesaling to insurance agents). The staffing industry is leaps and bounds more uplifting than insurance, and based on salary figures from the interviews, the recruiting job would pay a bit more. But the commute would be an hour each way. The insurance job is inside sales/marketing and they were very honest about commission expectations (which are not quite as high as I would like). The business opportunity is much more realistic here, and it's in an industry I already know (and am licensed in). The commute is about 5 or 6 miles from my house. The owner made it clear that he expects me to outgrow the job in a couple years as the business grows, opening up more opportunity for me. The job would involve a great deal of autonomy including the freedom to work from home every so often, and the owner of the company is looking at me in a mentor/mentee capacity rather than as a traditional boss. I know that this is something that comes with small companies a lot of the time, and I think it would be there with the recruiting position as well seeing how it is also small.
What I am torn about is that while one position seems significantly more fun (and better paying) than the other, the other is more in line with my experience and knowledge, and has a better long term business opportunity (unless I decide to start my own staffing company someday).
Can anyone shed any insight on my predicament? Any recruiters out there want to share any experiences?
I am a doctor that has recently graduated with an MD. I do not want to be a doctor anymore. What canI do with my life? I have loans to pay off...I need something that pays well...
This may sound like a silly question, but I guess I am just not the guy who knows it. I have never ever been there in my life.
May I know, what takes place inside an office? How is work carried out there? What does each and every person in the office do? What is the role of each and everyone? How is work allocated?
Can someone explain to me in a simple way, please?
How are the roles divided?
Can anyone show me a source?
I have never worked in an office before. I always work on site.
I'm currently in a marketing position within the relatively small international company that I work for. For other companies I have worked in sales and I want to get back into it. My boss is aware of my desire and will support it if I approach things the right way. I am going on a few sales calls with an inside sales person over the next weeks to get familiar with the type of customers we deal with - so things are slowly rolling. My question essentially would be how I can start working my way towards sales? I would imagine there would have to be a transition phase in which I'm doing marketing work while slowly taking on more sales tasks. I need to write a proposal to present to my boss and would like some ideas on how to tackle this if possible.
I am a 2004 college graduate majoring in business marketing. After graduation, I spent the first year with major financial institution as a financial consultant(in call center) I did not particularly enjoy this position. After working for a year with the financial institution, I tried to develop and operate an entertainment company. I had some small success, but not enough to keep my financial stable. I have been fortunate enough to answer classified ads and receive interviews to a handful of companies throughout the region and several interviews develop into a second interview. Unfortunately, none of these job opportunities have come to fruition. Most of the employers have stated they are looking for someone with more experience in the corporate world. At this point I am wondering if anyone is familiar with a position that may have just become recently opened and believes it might be a good fit. Im looking for about 25-30k a year. Any suggestions or advice would be appreciated.

If one wants to just give plain facials or apply skin care/ make up (as they do in some department stores) do you need a license?
Because there are many sales consultants that apply skin care and make up on people inside department stores in the cosmetic department. Can this be done? As long as you don't charge for it or call yourself and esthetician?
Car Salespeople! What is your secret?
I just got a job selling Fords. What is your favorate trick.
I need a way to make money but without taking a LOT of my time, like a real job would.
So I want to begin a website sort of like kijiji or Craigslist but just for me not for other people to use.
I would sell things to people in Canada. Just used things or things I make, whatever.
I would like to have them oay by pay pal and then i would ship the items to them.
How do i go about this? what do i do??
I recently got hired at a Fortune 500 company. An acquaintance of mine works there and said it would be a good fit for me. The job title was "Inside Sale Representative" and I have a good background of sales and office experience, so I felt it would work too. I interviewed and they told me the position would involve selling to customers over the phone, and some customer inquires. I was told that the hours would be within the time frame of 7am-5pm M-F. Also, 5 weeks of paid training. Great! Well, I got the job and started two weeks ago. Upon beginning, they told me that the hours would be 7-5 EVERY DAY. So, mandatory overtime. This is hard for me, considering I have a child and recently remarried. Then, I found out more about what my job would entail-- not so much sales, but more like a complaint department, and in a call center environment! Not what I was told! I have no experience in call centers. Then, they told us (meaning me and the 7 other people in my training group) that they are shortening our training and starting us on the phones by ourselves after only 3 weeks of training. This is such a nightmare! I also found out that the company has a employee referral program, so if you work there and someone you referred is hired you get $500. I can see why my "acquaintance" was so eager to get me in the door! >:( So, if you were me, what would you do? I know this place is going to burn me out, and I need to find something else. But how do I interview when I am working 7-5pm every workday? My husband works and makes good money, but not enough for me to stay home on only his income. I was excited to get back into sales when I got this job and liked being done at 5pm so I could spend time with my family, but I will hardly see them at this rate. I have 12 years of optical experience, wondering if I should just go back to that, even though I was really hoping for a change of employment. So, what is your opinion on this?
I got myself into tons of credit card debt, and my 8.25 and hour salary and 18 hours a week at my job isn't cutting it anymore. I love my current job: I work at BCBG Max Azria as a sale consultant/associate, and our company is notorious for being disorganized, with little pay for a lot of work. I work inside one of our partner shops, which is a store within a big department store, so I do not get commission.
I am 90 percent certain that the position at Nordstrom which I am interviewing for is going to work out (it's a long story), but BCBG has a policy that I cannot work for the competition. So my question is, do you think BCBG will make an exception for me? I have had many clients call and compliment me directly to my district manager, and I am over $13,000 above my running sales goal (which is a big deal, because a lot of my coworkers aren't even at their goals).
I mean, I don't want to leave because I love the company: my clients, the merchandise, and my coworkers, but I need more money. I plan on calling my district manager and asking her about it, but I was wondering what your opinions are.
Because since our new management came in and gave me 18 hours a week (before I got ten), we made our stretch goals every month after not making even our plan for over a year (not a coincidence since that was the only change to our store). Only two other girls in my district have made their goal-to-date, and I am one of them: would they not bend their rule if it obviously would benefit them? I still would work 10-18 hours there a week.

I'm 16 years of age, and I'm really worried about the future. By that, I mean that I'm worried that I won't be where I want to be. I don't know where I'll be, or what I'll be doing. I don't know if Life is going to be a b***h to me and I'll have to leave on the streets or anything like that. I'm afraid that if I mess something up now, something else will happen to me in the future. Please help.
