AT&T Hiring 3,000 Salespeople

AT&T has 3,000 openings for salespeople.

AT&T is so eager to hire great employees like you that its top staffing directors sat down with Shareen Pathak of Sales-Jobs.Fins.com and explained how you can get an edge in applying.

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.

Why does AOL allow posters such 'vckvnn' post ads in every 'blog' site? AOL should sue these posters and the companies that they post for ADVERTISING!! Every poster that see's the 'ad's' should report them!
