RE: Why is sales so hard?
I've been in a few years. I have a solid job currently at a big company in the city and I have to leave in a few minutes. Here are a few tips.

1. No one is going to give a good sales job to a newbie. The first few jobs for MOST people is hundreds of calls daily. Even at Oracle you're basically a cold calling bitch for the first few years. So if you want to make it in sales expect to have a few bullshit jobs in order to "pay your dues".

2. Most jobs are bullshit. Check turnover, interview the sales managers. Ask the reps how it is. Call the top rep and ask how it is.

3. Check tenure. You want most around you to be there for a few years. Good reps leave to other opportunities and bad reps get fired. Long tenure means those there haven't gone out to seek out better opportunities.

4. You will have to work hard and grind, that is expected.

5. You need a product that makes DMs say "I've heard of you guys, let's talk" when you call them. Think of tech that is known and good. Those companies. Shit products won't get very far.

Most of your objections should be similar to "We're in a multi year contract with your competitor", "I know you guys are good but we don't need that right now", "We're not ready yet but soon we may be".
