Come prepared with outside sales experience
Business Development Executive (Current Employee) – Sharon Hill, PA – September 11, 2015
The base salary is okay, but the real plus is the car allowance and the expenses are covered. The operations team is amazing, getting you through the mine field that can be importing/exporting and domestic shipping.
If you have sales experience like me, but not outside sales experience, you will run into an issue. Outside sales is so different and they are not going to really provide you with any methodology to learn it. Use other resources, like blogs and people in the field who know what they're doing to guide you.
Six months is not long enough to see how someone will develop, especially if some of the relationships you are building with clients may take a year to flourish.
