Why Sales?

  • EVERYONE SELLS: “Approximately 50% of all college graduates, irrespective of major, are hired into first jobs that are primarily sales positions” (HR Chally)
  • SALES SKILLS MAKE A DIFFERENCE: “Sales program graduates ramped up, on average, 50% faster than their non-sales educated peers. (Sales Education Foundation 2011)
  • FIRMS ARE HIRING FOR SALES: The need for great sales skills is consistently echoed by employers. “For at least five consecutive years, Manpower, the recruiting and workforce development firm, has ranked sales positions as one of the hardest positions to fill." (Harvard Business Review 2012).
