How to Find Your Next Print Sales Job
• Stay current with technology and be able to confidently speak the language.
You don’t have to be an expert, but it’s very easy to read industry related publications. Also, build a relationship with someone on the IT side of the business. I find most of these so-called geeks are very willing to share their knowledge and ideas with you.
• Take pride in your appearance.
This is very important, particularly for the first interview: You may not look like you did in your younger days, but if you take care of yourself physically, this attitude will likely carry over into your work. Keep yourself mentally young...we can even learn from our kids!
• Take inventory of yourself.
What have you gained from your experience? If you don’t have a “book of business,” what do you have to offer a company? Be well prepared to answer that question. Always be building relationships with clients or prospective clients. You never know how they may help you down the road.
The bottom line is, you must remain positive and optimistic.
For some of us, it will require a complete reinvention of oneself. Make this challenge fun and it will pay off...I promise!
