Positives : The truth about sales jobs is that many people in sales jobs work remotely or at least have some flexibility to work from home, sometimes,,
You'll develop a lot as a person by working in sales.
You'll have to leave your comfort zone and push yourself, and you'll experience massive personal growth because of it.

Negatives : Prospects who have had the misfortune of working with manipulative or pushy salespeople will be more more difficult to sell to and most People are wary of sales reps because they believe you'll call and email them incessantly with information about products they don't need and won't buy.

It's quite unfortunate that we have bastardized sales and marketing in this country.

The truth is, there's no company without that department, which makes it strategic in the scheme of things. If you have a marketing skill, the world is your oyster.

Please take the job. While you are trying to promote your company's products, you can get a job with other companies. grin

Sales job are everywhere and most times they don't pay more than 50k-60k and they entice you with commission.

The pressure that comes with target meeting is too high from some companies. If you don't have a strong mind you would nearly run mad.

Sales job is not for everyone, and there are levels to Sales, some sales people earn almost a million (salary+commission) monthly, while some lesser. Salaries or commissions for Sales jobs in big establishments are usually enticing but if you're prone to High BP & Hypertension avoid Sales jobs.

OP if you have a Sales Passion then why not take up one of them after a due diligence on the company's employees and remuneration Ts & Cs ....
Howbeit I usually advocate for youths to embrace independence....why not get an online skill set and make @least $50 weekly selling your skill or doing little services remotely.
Do you know that you can get paid selling for people online....
I mentored someone on SALES BOOST LOCOMOTIVES and now he sells ladies wears and body lotions via his whatshatch & WhatsApp platforms.
According to his feedback he has 100 girls/ladies on his contact that buys @least one lady top or jeans monthly and for every sale made to each of the 100 girls he gives a discounted price yet he makes @least #500(five hundred naira) on a transaction....
Recently he credited me with a #10k appreciation money though he paid for my training but he is still wowed by one of the module skill(Client acquisition Skill) he learnt...hence the token sent to me.
Proactivity Leads To Productivity!!!!

If you are not a sexy lady, it would be very difficult to meet target. Were i waas working on the island as logisics, there were about 50 sales rep in the company that were to meet a target but only the females were meeting and passing the targets.. None of the numerous guys did and those guys were very intelligent and good in interacting with people. Thats why most companies now will specify they need ladies for sales rep.

3 reasons you have to be an affiliate marketer

1) Affiliate programs are cheap to set up - you don't need thousands or millions of naira to start, you can start with relatively with no money as long has you have internet connection and you are on social media

2) It's not risky to do - The reason being that you are not creating any product yourself, all you do is find an evergreen product that sells like crazy, and you help them promote the product..

3) It's a nice side hustle that will literally put millions in your account, and it can be done anywhere you are, you don't need a physical office

Why the wait...if you will want to know how you can earn 6 figures as an Affiliate Marketer, contact me on whatsapp on 09038004141. You will be added to the free class group and have access to materials for free

Depends on what type of sales and what type of company.
I think sales in a multinational company is okay. Sales Engineers in my company earn a big deal.
