microsoft jobsMicrosoft, which already employs 36,000 salespeople in the United States alone, is hiring more people around the nation, reports Shareen Pathak in

Microsoft is on a roll. Last week it announced at 51 percent increase in profits. Also, Microsoft has plenty new to sell, including Internet Explorer 9 and Windows Phone 7. Microsoft is recruiting both entry level and experienced salespersons who have technical expertise. However, there are some higher-level jobs that demand the relationship approach to sales. Those require soft skills such as listening and problem-solving.
