No, no, not you. Your mannerisms make people uncomfortable, I meant the proverbial you.
Apparently, despite all our unemployment and underemployment, companies are still struggling to fill sales jobs. I get that it's not for everyone, but given the number of people who aren't terribly thrilled with their current gig (or who downright dread going to work in the morning), and how well so many of these openings pay, I'm still surprised how few people actually consider it an option.
Companies are having a tough time filling their openings for skilled workers, but apparently sales jobs aren't far behind in lacking qualified candidates. Considering that the only qualification for the bulk of entry-level sales jobs is to have halfway-decent people skills, you'd think we'd see at least as many liberal arts grads going into sales as we do becoming baristas.
Is it the stigma of a job that's still represented by Alec Baldwin in Glengarry Glen Ross? Or am I missing anything else here?
