Blog Entry:

 

As an intern at the Central Massachusetts Visitors Bureau, I have encountered many situations where I have needed to effectively communicate with fellow employees and clients. Recently, I was assigned the task of selling advertising packages to clients. In order to make a successful sale, I needed to develop a strong, concise, sales pitch that encompassed all of CMCVB’s advertising benefits. Although sales are tough in this economy, I was able to interest many of our members in purchasing advertising packages. I left my day at CMCVB feeling a strong sense of my achievement.

 

This sense of achievement furthered my interest in sales and made me feel confident in pursuing a career in a competitive sales environment. Through my internship experience, I have learned that a strong work ethic, determination, and communication skills are essential to be successful in not only sales, but in any career path I choose to pursue.
