Career memes of the week: IT salesperson

20 Aug 2013580 Views

IT sales come under the spotlight of this week’s career memes, a job where a specialist or consultant sells hardware and software products to clients.

The duties of an IT salesperson involves finding and following sales leads, attending sales meetings and meetings with clients, determining a client’s business needs and whether the hardware or software under consideration can meet those requirements, and once a sale is made, perhaps even follow up with the client.

An IT salesperson will usually have a university/college degree and at the very least be familiar with IT subjects. He or she should have a good knowledge of the products he or she is selling.

In terms of skills, a good IT salesperson should have excellent selling, presentation, communication, and time management abilities, as well as initiative.     

In Ireland, an IT salesperson can earn an average salary of €45,000, according to PayScale.com.
