Still looking for a job which i'm going to blame on rising unemployment rates more than anything else because taking responsibility for yourself is an outdated fad
Seriously though...i've mentioned a couple of the career tracks i'm interested in but i'll bring them up again here for ****s and giggles. I'm intrigued by marketing and would love to get a foot in the door of an ad agency. I like selling things and would like to try sales, but ultimately i intend on going back to school and teaching when my financial situation is in some better shape (i briefly mentioned this at my last job interview for some reason and wonder if this is why they passed on me ).
At any rate, a while ago i applied for a sales position with CDW. Very quickly, a recruiter called me. I didn't like of the feel of that and started doing some research. I have come to find some bad information on this job from people on the net.
I have no misconceptions, i'd basically be a telemarketer to small businesses trying to sell them technology solutions. But i keep reading about unfair compensation and unrealistic quota's being set. At this point i feel like i've got nothing to lose but i've got a few questions.
First of all, i'd be very interested in hearing from anyone who has actually worked with CDW or perhaps dealt with them through their own business but i'm also wondering what everyone's opinion is on reviews about jobs posted on the internet. I feel i should take them to heart but do so with a grain of salt. It often seems that the only people who care enough to complain about something on the internet are those who have something bad to say about it. CDW, very recently, has gained much respect as an employer, but that seems to be fading and i fear for getting myself into something like that.
I'm also turned off by the fact that all you need for this position is a high school diploma but on the other hand, if i want to get into sales...why not learn some things from such a large (and hugely profitable) company?
