Are you looking for an opportunity to get paid for your performance, to learn and/or improve your sales skills, to get promoted, and to work in a recession resistant industry? If so, the following steps will explain the basics of getting hired at a wireless cell phone dealership or corporate location.
What will you need?
- Updated resume
Here are some steps to help you out:
- Make sure you have updated resumes that highlight your previous experience and achievements. You will need these as you visit each location and meet with recruiters or managers for the stores.
- Depending on your ability and willingness to travel, do a local search for wireless stores in your area (search wireless stores, cell phone companies, or by individual names). For example, a search of cell phone stores will usually list both direct, or corporate, stores, and indirect, or privately owned, locations. As you meet with multiple companies, you will realize that the pay structures vary so be sure to inquire about specifics from each.

- Go to your local mall! Most malls have at least two to over ten different cell phone dealers! Be sure to wear professional attire and to have your resume on hand. Ask for the manager and/or the phone # for a local recruiter. Be persistent and take the initiative and you will find yourself getting interviewed by one, if not many, of these companies. Many sales manager will tell you that they are ALWAYS looking for a good asset to add to their team.
- Research each company that you have an interview with so you are prepared with questions and answers. Be determined, show your personality and confidence, and begin making money selling what is now a necessity, cell phones!
- Some companies require college education and/or sales experience while others do not.
- Remember, this is a sales industry so be sure to sell yourself!
- Sales and/or commission pay is not for everyone. If you do not have sales experience but you possess the right attitude, you will succeed.
