So I just wrapped up my first full week at my new job. I moved from automobile sales to Outside Sales. My undergraduate degree was in marketing and sales, so this was where I wanted to be. I sort of went off course for ages 22-30 (law school), but I’m happy to be on track.
Thus far I love:
How busy I am. I used to spend 90% of my day in auto sales sitting around, now I am constantly working.
The constant victories. At my last job you were doing well if you were selling 2-3 cars a week, at my new job, you may sell 4-5 ad spots a day!
Hours. I am a HUGE sports fan, so it stunk missing out on all of the racing and football because I was working weekends. That is a thing of the past since I now have weekends off. Even better, I wrap up work at 5pm every day!
Professionalism. I can’t lie, my last job was like working in a baseball dugout. Tons of cursing, dirty jokes, and spitting. It’s a pleasure to work in an environment that demands immaculate hygiene.
What I don’t like:
I don’t think the money will be as good.
The fact that I am getting my professional career going at the age of 30. I am not sure if I would have been mature enough to do this job right out of undergrad, but I hope that I haven’t put myself too far behind.
The Honda has truly become the weekend car.
