Connecting to Sales
We have seen some excellent Sales Leading to Management opportunities at recent Career Conferences. Leading companies like Textron Aviation, Medtronic and Altec (to name a few) have hired JMOs into sales roles with great success. As a former Sales Manager for a leading Medical Device company, I speak from experience when I say that JMOs have success when staring their business careers in sales and they enjoy the work. JMOs are a great fit because they are driven, can build lasting relationships and have strong project management skills. JMOs enjoy the work because they are rewarded for their individual effort and results, they are afforded the opportunity to excel in a truly autonomous work environment and they can see a clear path to greater leadership roles. As you consider connecting your military background in a sales interview, please read below a blog I posted in April 2013 about successfully connecting in a sales interview. If ever you have any questions about starting your business career in sales, please feel free to contact me directly.
