  • Bachelors degree is required. 
  • Candidates should possess a minimum of 1 year of experience in outside business to business sales with a proven track record of success (not a deal breaker, but ideal) 
  • Ability to work both independently and in a team setting towards meeting established sales goals and objectives.
  • Well-developed written and oral communication skills.
  • Applies a range of traditional and non-traditional problem-solving techniques to think through and solve issues creatively to improve performance and company effectiveness.
  • Ability to build rapport and relationships by interacting effectively with employees and external contacts (i.e. MD and office staff) at all levels, demonstrating the awareness of their needs and responding with the appropriate action.
  • Highly effective organizational skills to implement a variety of programs, such as speaker programs and other activities.
  • Computer Skills; Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Outlook.
  • Some overnight travel may be required.
  • Candidates must be able to successfully pass background, motor and drug screen investigations. 

My hire deadline for this position is May 2nd, which gives me a little under a month.  Also, I’m more than willing to come to campus for a day/evening to meet with anyone interested in the position or even to speak more about the role to your senior business students.  In addition, if you have any other names of recent graduates that you believe would be worth contacting please send them my way.

Professor Avery, It goes without saying that my experience at Ripon College and the various classes you instructed have played a significant role in any professional successes that I have achieved.  I thank you for that and I look forward to your reply.  Make it a great day.
