  • 1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis.
  • As a new Business Sales placement my role involves creating new leads, presenting demonstrations of the software and cultivating relationships with customers. This process involves a lot of cold calling and communication with a variety of customers worldwide. I am assigned tasks to research and discover potential new leads and get in contact, whether this be by calling or email, to essentially sell our CRM software and help reach our monthly targets.


  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills, or developed your existing skills?
  • My role at the company has required a lot of customer interaction and presentations. This has strongly developed my presentation skills, as well as my ability to communicate effectively with customers in order to try and make a sale or maintain their interests in the software. I believe communication and confidence are major skills that I will need throughout my future career path and skills I believe I have strengthened over my placement year. I have also strongly developed my IT skills, having spent a year working at as software company, which in the modern-day working environment are essential.
