6 ways you can sell yourself to employers to recruit you for a sales junior role when you have no experience

Have you decided you want a career in sales but are fearful that you will be pipped at the post by a more experienced salesperson, or employers will see you as a risk? Does this resonate with you?

Do not fear; Debbie is here! Eradicate those concerns and show potential employers you have more to offer than experienced sales professionals. I remember when I was twenty-one, and I embarked on a sales career with Yell. Admittedly it took a few months before I could prove my potential; within twelve months, I was high up the sales league table and winning newcomer of the year. I had three highly successful years at Yell and continued that success winning Distinction and National Sales Awards at Orange; I was still in my early twenties.

  • I know you have the potential.
  • I know Generation Z add immense value to any sales department for business development
  • I know you can go from zero to hero within 6-months

How do I know this? I have done it; I am living proof. I have trained over a thousand graduates in sales roles; you will see them broadcasting their successes on LinkedIn, climbing the ladder and moving on to new ventures.
