Nov. 7, 2017 How to get Hired, Seattle Jobs


If you’re an outgoing person, you’ve probably thought about starting a career in sales at least once in your life. As many people know, sales is not a career choice for everyone; it takes a special type of person to succeed in sales. Inside sales jobs are a different challenge all together, as they don’t rely on face-to-face interactions/chemistry, like outbound, traditional sales roles tend to do. Inside Sales is a different kind of hustle; however, as we see Inside Sales jobs on the rise, we also see key qualities and experiences that the most successful Inside Sales professionals share.

Strong Qualities for Inside Sales Jobs

It’s not just about being charismatic – although, a little charisma never hurts – but it’s also largely about how fast you can build rapport and how well you handle rejection. The right candidates for Inside Sales roles must be comfortable making phone calls and writing emails day in and day out. They’re competitive, fast-paced, and always have a positive mindset.

If you’ve thought about dipping your toe into the Inside Sales pool, then we recommend watching our video below. In it, our Recruiter, Sarah Kirschner, discusses what inside sales is, what she looks for when she interviews Inside Sales candidates, and how you can jump into the industry, too!
