SPORTS SALES SPECIALIST (Former Employee), Chicago – September 5, 2014
Pros: the thrill of victory. securing a sale
Cons: losing a sale. client not interested.
A typical day would be to go to office and schedule meetings with prospective advertisers or meet with them. The best time to meet clients is 9am-11am Monday thru Friday. During baseball season I would entertain clients in the CBS Radio suite and watch a Chicago White Sox home game.
Hardest part of the job is getting thru to decision makers and securing – more... the appointment.
Most enjoyable is securing a sponsorship and spending quality time after working hours with sponsor. – less

CBS is a great company to work for. The benefits of the company are wonderful. They train their people. They invest in their people. It's been great to me! The only real negative is the job/life balance for me!

I was a promotions assistant for Radio Alice in San Francisco. Although I had been a promotions assistant for other stations for over 4 years throughout college, the few months I spent at CBS was equally as rewarding. It was my first time working in a major market and working with this team has taught me so much. This promotions team was very active – more... online and throughout the social networking community. I also learned how to be nifty with a budget and how to work with managers that might have a different vision than you. I often worked at concerts and festivals and was able to see live performances. – less
