The position of sales assistant — start the careers of many professionals. But to become a real guru of sales is not given to everyone. The job of a salesperson in a large company requires not only professional skills and responsible attitude to their duties (and where, tell me, is it not necessary?), but also a kind of talent, like musical, artistic or mathematical gift. The Eldorado HR professionals share their experience: what are the qualities of the applicant the relevant workplace.


Personal qualities
If you think that the seller can become a person who applied to the company, is a delusion.

Of course, the work of vendors-consultants — for extroverts: bright, charismatic, in which communication with people delivers a visible pleasure. Add to this the confidence in the good quality of goods sold, knowledge of brands and characteristics of products sold — portrait of a good employee with high volumes of sales ready (at least in first approximation). Naturally, from the inert man with the indifferent attitude to customers and the goods are good indicators should not wait.
