The 3 Parts of a Dream Job Sales Plan (written by Career Expert, Pete Leibman)

Every great salesperson takes the time to design a well-constructed sales plan before trying to sell his product.  As a job-seeker, you need to do the same because you are also a salesperson: you are selling yourself!  There are 3 parts to a “Dream Job Sales Plan:” 

  1. Identify Your Target Market.  You have to determine who your customers are before you can “sell” them.  Find the top 25 companies you would want to work for (based on your selected geography, industry, and so on).
  2. Identify Your Current Resources.  Do not take your current contacts and affiliations for granted during your job search.  Make a list of every person and group you are connected to right now.
  3. Identify the best ways to impress people with “buying power.”  “Buying power” is the ability to hire you or the willingness to refer you to another person who has the ability to hire you.  I got my dream job to work for an NBA team after college because I found someone with “buying power.”  He did not have a job for me, but he connected me with someone who did.  Determine how you can get yourself in front of the right people.

Tune in later this week and next week to learn how to create each part of your “Dream Job Sales Plan.”
