Until the day comes when one computer sells to another computer the world will always need salesmen and women.
Why? Because, as any sales trainer worth their salt will tell you, listening with empathy is the most important skill for a sales person.
That is why someone who can sell well, bring in their own leads and hunt for new business while all the time building and maintaining a relationship with their clients is a member of staff who is worth their weight in gold.
Add to that the ability to think on your feet and you are a winner.
There is no such thing as just a sales person that is why there are so many different types of sales jobs out there: so check out the variety here at HIJOBS.
