Many college and university students, who are not on an advanced degree or graduate school track, get their diploma with no certainty about what kind of job they will pursue. By default many of them get jobs as waiters or retail salespersons just to earn some money and think about what to do next.
But realistically you are not going to learn much in routine wait-staff or retail jobs. Consider instead the much greater value of entry-level sales jobs working for a national company that provides you with training, support, bonus commissions, insurance and other benefits.
Here are some important reasons why the best entry-level sales jobs are offered by companies like LogoNation, for whom recruiting and training recent grads for these jobs is a high priority:
1) You can work from home, or your hometown, and serve a metropolitan area, rather being uprooted and expected to travel around the country, living out of a suitcase in one anonymous hotel room after another. LogoNation’s business model is based on outside sales representatives covering a metro area that is roughly 30 miles from a center city – usually a core county and all the surrounding counties, for example.
2) You can learn a lot without taking more classes – Learning to sell products or services, and more specifically learning to persuade other people to take a certain course of action, is one of the most vital skills you can learn and use in any type of job. Every day you’ll have fresh opportunities to present your business case to company owners and decision-makers, who can benefit not only by having their brand name advertised around town, but also by being associated with a project that promotes community pride and spirit. You also learn more about being responsible for what you do, managing your time and workday, and engaging in many other activities that are a lot like running your own small business. You can use this kind of knowledge not only as your first after-college career grows, but also in almost any other kind of job you might hold in the years to come.
3) You can make a good living – An entry-level sales job like LogoNation offers allows you to make in excess of $40,000 a year to start, and more over time as your sales volume grows. That is a lot more than many other entry-level jobs offer, so you can not only pay all your living expenses but even save for the future if you are so inclined. In addition, health insurance and other benefits are provided by a caring company run by people who started out just like you are going to.
4) You have the satisfaction of achievement – By having specific goals and working hard to achieve them, you’ll earn a level of satisfaction that many other entry-level jobs to not provide. All too many basic jobs are humdrum, monotonous, same-old same-old, day after day. As a LogoNation sales representative, you’ll be out in the marketplace, moving about, making and executing plans, and charting your progress with solid accomplishments. Every day you’ll be meeting different people, learning about their businesses, understanding their needs, and providing them with a service that can advance their business and their brand cost-effectively. You won’t need someone else to pat you own the back for a job well done – but in fact you will receive recognition and rewards from a company offering some of the best entry-level sales jobs in America.
