Determine Your Own Pay With A Career In Sales

by

Braden Staranchuk says one of the best parts about a career in sales is that the sky is the limit in terms of how much money you can earn. At the end of the day, more phone calls and more engagements with customers means the opportunity to earn more money.

Staranchuk is Softchoice‘s Mid-Market and Public Sector Telesales Manager in Toronto, a position he’s held since 2008. Before that, he was an inside sales representative, a small-medium business rep in the northeastern United States, and an outside sales rep in Vancouver.

He originally started with Softchoice in 2005, shortly after graduating from Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia, with a major in psychology. He says that an arts degree is a perfect liaison to sales for someone like him who is outgoing and motivated by goals (like commission!).

As a manager, Staranchuk now hires for Softchoice‘s telesales team. He says Softchoice is looking for people who:

  • have a passion for sales
  • want to learn
  • are well organized
  • can show up every day, be professional and work hard
