Sales as a Career!! Are you Game ?

Although debatable, Sales is the single most critical function of an organization. Be it a fortune 500, Series funded or a startup. Sales guys are the front-runners who face clients head on. The heart & soul of a business entity lies with the Sales/marketing Team. In one liner - Sales is like oxygen without which a business entity suffocates and slowly fades away.
As much as we would like to think that we're living a the 4th revolution (Aka Digital World), one where all sales happen on line and there is no need for us to pick up the phone, but unfortunately that's not true.
Although sales does happen through the web, there are still many sales strategies that need us to pick up the phone, or have face to face meetings, where building relationships is still the key to closing the sale, especially if you're in a services business.
To me, job titles don't matter. Everyone is in sales. It's the only way we stay in business. - Harvey Mackay

Candidate 1: Sleeps till noon, was kicked out from public office twice, used opium in college, drinks a quart of vodka daily. 

Candidate 2: has 2 mistresses, drinks 10 martinis a day, consults an astrologist for his decisions, chain smoker.

If you chose Candidate 3, here is more information...

Candidate 1: Winston Churchill 
Candidate 2: Franklin D. Roosevelt 
Candidate 3: Adolf Hitler 

We are too quick to make snap judgments about people, particularly on interviews. Do not you agree?

What a classic example!! Not always do we get a …

The Broken Recruitment System

It is ridiculously easy for a job-seeker, no matter how qualified, talented & competent, to get beaten down and to start to think there's something wrong with him or her. Its easy to bog down the finest of talents & shatter their dreams.

Hundreds & thousands of amazingly well polished Talents are running haywire because of useless recruitment methods. These processes are insane and sucks out our energies. The recruiting process is broken. Qualified people can't get job interviews and if they do manage to get them it will drive them away.

Many Talents feel frustrated and sucked out that they discount themselves. They think they do not have what it takes to grab that Offer. In reality, YOU are not alone. You are not defective! You are talented, smart and creative but the recruiting process is designed to beat your confidence out of you and grind you down to mush.

The recruiting process is broken from start to finish. The way companies write job ads is ridiculou…
