  • 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 also assigned tasks to chase potential customers to get them booked in for demonstrations and follow up calls, to ultimately get the sale over the line.


  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills, or developed your existing skills?
  • My role requires me to communicate with lots of different customers so I would say this is the main skill that I have developed during my time at ProspectSoft and, I now feel very confident when calling customers. I believe communication and confidence are major skills that I will need throughout my future career path, so I'm glad to have developed them. I have also progressed my IT skills, having spent a year working at a software company which will certainly benefit me in the future.

  • 3. Were you given much responsibility during your placement / internship?
  • From the very beginning of my placement I have been given lot's of responsibility, which has helped me to develop as a person. After completing my training I was immediately required to interact with customers and create potential leads for the team. Being given this much responsibility has been one of my favourite parts about the placement.
