작업 설명

Most of us work for companies that sell products or services so they can make profits, stay in business – and pay their employees. But employees are also consumers; we buy products and services from companies with the money we earn from working. That’s basically how our economy is set up!

At the heart of this economic cycle is the concept of sales. Companies rely on professional sales teams to ensure products and services are effectively marketed to consumers. Leading the charge are Sales Managers, who train and guide sales teams, strategize sales plans, and help their company reach its revenue goals. Without their diligent efforts, companies would collapse, with rippling effects that hurt workers and the economy.

기대와 희생

The role of a Sales Manager requires the ability to manage stress while multitasking. They work under pressure to train members, devise effective sales strategies, and meet sales targets by desired deadlines.  

Travel may be necessary, with working hours stretching beyond the typical 9-5. This can impact one’s work-life balance and also require managers to adapt to diverse climates and situations.  

현재 동향

Sales Managers must stay current on the latest sales technologies and trends, including digital marketing, CRM tools, and data analytics. AI is revolutionizing sales processes by providing predictive analytics and insights into customer behavior.

Another trend is social selling, which involves using social media platforms to find and engage with potential customers. This shift highlights the importance of building strong digital presences and networks. Indeed, e-commerce has transformed sales strategies with companies selling more to global customers. That international trade comes with its share of challenges that Sales Managers must navigate along with their other duties.  

Lastly, there’s an increased focus on sustainability and ethical practices, prompting Sales Managers to meet the demand for eco-friendly, socially responsible products.

  • Review Sales Manager resume templates
  • Cite quantifiable results (such as total dollar amounts of products sold), when possible
  • Read sample interview questions and practice your replies via mock interviews. Sample questions might include:
  1. “How do you develop and implement effective sales strategies to meet or exceed company targets?”
  2. “Can you describe a time when you successfully led a sales team to achieve a challenging goal?”
  3. “How do you handle underperforming sales representatives? What strategies do you use to improve their performance?”
  • Know the logistics lingo and best practices for managing warehouses, inventory, and transportation.
  • Stay connected to your professional network. Ask for leads on upcoming job openings
  • Keep up with developments related to the product or service type you want to sell
  • Do your research on potential employers. Learn what kind of products and services they sell and who their target buyers are
  • Dress appropriately for job interviews!
  • Ask former professors and supervisors to write recommendation letters or request their consent to list them as references
사다리를 오르는 법
  • The best way to move up is to make sales and meet deadlines! When you’re making money for your employer, they notice!
  • Consistently find great leads, negotiate great deals — and try to exceed your quotas
  • Keep in mind that many sales jobs pay a salary plus commission, i.e. “money a salesperson earns based on the number of sales they have made.” So climbing the ladder doesn’t have to mean getting a promotion. It could mean bringing in bigger commissions and getting a chance to sell to larger clients
  • Let your supervisor know you are interested in advancement. Offer to take the lead on tough projects or trips that maybe other sales reps don’t want to go on
  • Knock out additional education and training to improve your ability to make sales
  1. For example, you can get a National Association of Sales Professionals - Certified Professional Sales Person certification…or a master’s degree in business!

  • Watch or listen to sales demos to keep your skills sharp
  • 모든 사람을 존중하고, 정시에 프레젠테이션을 잘 준비하고, 솔루션을 제공하고, 장기적인 고객 관계를 유지하는 데 집중하십시오.
