Managing Director at Florida Business Consulting Eric Martin is a firm believer that a job in sales will provide graduates with many valuable skills that will set them up for future success. These are listed as follows:

1. Sales is everywhere
�Whether you are selling a product, selling yourself to get a job, or pitching to an investor - sales is a required skill,� claims Mr Martin. No matter the industry, there is always an element of sales involved argues Florida Business Consulting. Furthering this point of view, Hult International Business School conducted a survey of business leaders which revealed that strong sales skills was one of the top 10 critical skill of today�s workplace.

2. Dealing with different types of people
Having the ability to interact and connect with different types of people is a precious skill in the business world. Working in sales provides a constant stream of new potential customers to come into contact with from a variety of personalities, backgrounds and professions. Every day is different and brings new challenges. �Working in sales teaches you how to read people and build relationships and rapport, and that skill is useful in any industry,� commented Mr Martin.

3. Confidence
Florida Business Consulting contends that self-confidence is one of the most vital attributes for business success, and a job in sales is a surefire way to build that confidence. �For those who aren�t naturally confident, working in sales will force them outside of their comfort zones, see them gaining the confidence to speak to strangers and turn them into customers. As with anything practice makes perfect, the more you do something, the more confident you feel about it," stated Mr Martin.
