How did you get your start doing outside sales representative work, and what career moves did you make to get to your current position?

Do you need a particular educational background?

I worked customer service for a while.

I just started a sales position doing Merchant Banking. It's outside sales.

The biggest preperation I had was to just be myself and work as hard as I could. I'm cold calling, so that means call call call! CALL!

Just do it and it will fall into place. I'm two months in and it's going great.
