Video blog: TalentEgg account manager outlines what it takes to succeed in sales


Lewis Greenspon is the newest addition to the Egg Carton. He started earlier this month as a senior account manager here and is already “cashin’ cheques and breakin’ necks,” as he likes to say. (Don’t worry, no necks are actually harmed during the TalentEgg sales process.)

Lewis had already established himself as a career salesperson before he started with TalentEgg, so Lauren asked him a few questions about what it takes to succeed in sales—one of today’s most lucrative but also challenging career paths for students and new graduates.

Lewis says the best sales jobs either have a very low base salary or no base salary at all because it’s expected that really successful salespeople sell enough to not only keep the company going but also keep themselves going with their commission on each sale.

And that, Lewis says, is the best part of being in sales: the rush you get when you actually close a sale, no matter how big or small.

If you’re interested in a career in sales, check out the sales jobs and internships we have on from great companies such as Sears, Cargill, Enterprise, GE Canada, Reynolds and Reynolds, Softchoice, Xerox Canada and dozens more.

Welcome, Lewis, to the TalentEgg team!
