AT&T has 3,000 openings for salespeople.
To begin with, the openings are both in retail centers and in the actual business side. AT&T's approach is for solutions-selling. That is, AT&T requires listeners who can identify the customer's problem and recommend how it can be solved. This is far more important than simply having technical knowledge. For those it hires, AT&T has extensive training programs. The programs include mobilization for the new smartphones. Therefore, given AT&T's willingness to develop ability, this opportunity is ideal for new entries to the job market as well as career changers.
AT&T recommends you check its career site att.jobs. That will give you a feel for the organization as well as where you can apply for sales positions. After you apply, there is a pre-screening process by phone or online. The next step would be a pre-employment test, for which AT&T provides study guides. The actual interview focuses on your accomplishments and failures, including what you learned from the latter.
