Sales Jobs: Getting In Without Formal Selling Experience
are plentiful in good times and bad times.
There may be sales jobs you know you can do but don't apply for. That's usually because you assume you won't be hired because you've never held an official sales job. Don't assume that.
Instead, inventory your past, all the way back to your childhood, for situations in which you not only sold but did well at it. Then translate all that into the concepts and language of sales jobs and create resumes, cover letters, and interview scripts which you use to nail down a formal selling job. You get those concepts and language from analyzing job descriptions for sales representatives which are online among the help wanted.
