Great position for fun on the job
Senior Sales Consultant (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, Indiana – October 20, 2013
My days are spent selling! Whether it be on the phone, working a prospect event or attending one of the many Networking groups I attend on a regular basis. Although I had a lot of sales experience, I did not have the knowledge of sports sales and event planning. I have worked my way to being at the top in sales of the entire WNBA. My co workers are mostly entry level, new graduates who are using this position as a stepping stone on their way to higher dreams. Management is split. With two teams; NBA and WNBA, as well as different departments for each team such as tickets, sponsorship etc. There are way too many managers to report to. With split opinions and expectations between several managers.. it can be conflicting. The most enjoyable part of the job is the fans and the venue, however, in spite of the fun, it is a serious, demanding yet rewarding sales career and it can be difficult when others do not take it seriously. I love to have fun, but I am also quite serious about my career.
Fun, passionate fans, great venue and environment
