I ve been out of work for about 2 years and haven t bounced back. I ve been doing ride shares to pay the bills, but it s destroying my car and the salary is inconsistent. I m not inexperienced, either; I ve worked for Fortune 500 companies (pharmaceutical

Answers:

It can be REALLY hard to transition from sales to marketing. And what recruiters do best is place people into jobs similar to what they already have, so using a recruiter to transition to another field probably won't work. If you want to try to transition from sales to marketing, rework your resume so it highlights your marketing related skills (look at marketing job descriptions to know the key words you should use, and use them), and apply directly to open marketing jobs. There are employers out there who will be willing to take you on in marketing, but you'll need to find them. Apply directly.

A way to get into marketing from where you are is to go to a good MBA program full time (so you get out as quickly as possible and have time to do an internship in marketing, which will be key.) Obviously, this has opportunity costs, as you won't be working and you'll be taking on debt, but this will work if you go to a good MBA program. But it needs to be a good one. Think Fordham or above.

Have you ever thought of going into sales training? You might like that. It is an option for you, with your background.

Another option is to train for something that has strong demand, pays well, and takes a relatively short time to train for. Something like physical therapy assistant, occupational therapy assistant. You'd do this via a community college, and you would not be the only person who already has a bachelors and who's had another career in your program.

you might not realize it but the highest paid people(other than heads of businesses ) are people in sales
if you do well in sales you my no longer be interested but if you want the money you will stick with it

Go back to school, retrain for a new career. Re-invent yourself to do the things you do like to do.

If the only skills you have are in sales...for what sorts of jobs are you applying?? Better be entry level wherever you think you might get a job.

Ask for a internship you work for nothing expierence is your pay

at walmart. although if u do ur research u can sometimes get a job at a warehouse or factory without a degree. sometimes u might even find an office job for a crappy company without a degree.
