I have worked in retail for over 16 years, most of those in a management role. That alone makes me qualified for almost any type of sales job out there.
I have a Bachelors Degree in Finance, so I have the book smart part down. Understanding and analyzing numbers are important parts of ANY business, if someone tells you otherwise, they aren't performing at their optimal level. I also have the street smarts and the soft skills that matter when you are a sales person. Those can't be taught. Anyone who survived retail for 16+ years obviously has PEOPLE SKILLS.
So, this shameless plug is me saying, "I'm awesome, I'd be a great addition to the sales force of an awesome company." Frankly, I deserve a job I love and can thrive in. If you know of a position that sounds like the perfect fit for me, let me know ASAP. I'm sure I won't be on the market for long!
