THE ‘REAL 007’ ROLE (OTE: $162,500 – $178,125)

007

If you’re a James Bond fan, you’ve certainly watched the opening scene in Goldfinger … where Bond emerges from the water in a wetsuit and after a quick fight and rigging an explosion … peels off the wet suit, to reveal a dry tuxedo … and lights himself a cigarette!

In November 1941, Peter Tazelaar (a Dutch agent working for the Secret Service) plunged into the waters off the Dutch coast.  His mission – to infiltrate a Nazi-occupied casino and free two captured agents!

Stealthily, Tazelaar swam to the docks. He discarded his specially designed scuba suit and, (just like in the movie) … stood there, dry as a bone, in a tuxedo of his own!

He removed a flask from his suit jacket and doused himself in cognac.

Pretending to be drunk … Peter stumbled past the Nazi guards, entered the casino, tracked down the agents … and completed his mission!

Coffee's For Closers

“Put that coffee down … coffee’s for closers”!

You won’t find too many sales people who haven’t seen this infamous movie … and while Alec Baldwin was more than a bit ‘over-the-top’ in this 1992 classic about unmotivated sales people … his message definitely resonates with every sales professional.

Good thing is … you won’t need to worry about working under a tyrannical sales leader in this role.

This Sales Manager is great!

THE ‘BLOODHOUND GANG’ ROLE (OTE: $144,000 – $180,000)

Position Filled Logo

“Whenever there’s trouble … we’re there on the double … we’re the Bloodhound Gang.
If you’ve got the crime … we’ve got the time … we’re the Bloodhound Gang!”

Back in 1982 … The Bloodhound Gang was a mini-series that aired during the last 5 minutes of a PBS program called “3-2-1 Contact”.

It was about three clever teenagers who solved crimes, with the help of their knowledge of science.

My sister Manda and I would virtually kill ourselves racing home from grade school to catch the end of the show.

Each episode ended with a cliff-hanger, until the crime was miraculously solved!

Nothing was more frustrating than when a 3-2-1 Contact episode ran too long (usually on Fridays) and the announcer would say “The Bloodhound Gang will not be presented today”!  We were devastated that we’d have to wait an entire weekend to find out how the crime would be solved.

What does this have to do with my current role?
Well … nothing really.

That said … my client is in the investigations space … and they’re looking for a Director, Corporate Investigations to lead their own version of a Bloodhound Gang!

THE ‘OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS’ ROLE (OTE: $82,500+)

Position Filled Logo

Growing up in my neighborhood, there came a time … usually around the age of 10, when you longed to graduate from being looked at as a little kid … to having what we considered to be the ultimate ‘street cred’.

That rite of passage was none other than … ‘Nicky-Nicky 9 Doors’!

‘Nicky-Nicky 9 Doors’ (also known as … ‘Ding-Dong-Ditch’) had 4 simple rules;

RULE #1:
It had to ‘go down’ on a Saturday night … and only after dark.
(If you had to be home “when the street lights came on” … you effectively disqualified yourself).

RULE #2:
You couldn’t just knock on the screen door … it had to be the ‘real’ door!
(Having to open the screen door wasted precious seconds … elevating the odds of getting caught).

RULE #3:
You had to knock 3 times and clearly say the word ‘steamboat’ in between knocks.
(A combination of ringing the doorbell while knocking would elevate you to legend status)!

RULE #4:
You couldn’t pick the house … that was decided for you, and the house usually fell into one of three categories;

It was the house everyone thought was ‘haunted’ … the house with two ferocious pit bulls or, … God forbid … Mr. Watson’s place!
(For the record … no one actually knew Mr. Watson’s real life story but the stories we’d heard as kids would paralyze you simply by having to walk by his house … much less having to make the trip to his porch)!

So … what does this have to do with my latest role? Nothing really.
That said … if you think about it … ‘Nicky-Nicky 9 Doors’ was my initiation into the world of cold-calling.

SUMMARY:

My client is a well-known brand … famous for developing wonderful sales professionals.
You’d be hard pressed to find a better organization to launch your sales career in the right direction.

If you’re tired of 100% commissioned sales roles or plying your trade in a dead end industry … you should consider this … ‘opportunity knocking’.

My client is looking for sales professionals with 1 to 2 years of hunter-type sales experience. They are also open to entertaining Inside Sales professionals, looking to step out from behind the desk and take on an Outside Sales position.

POSITION: SALES EXECUTIVE
REPORTING TO: REGIONAL SALES MANAGER

  • Responsible for building a client base through regular, territory sales calls
  • Prospect a geographic territory, targeting potential clients to initiate long-term partnerships

  • Provide consultative sales approach – creating value for both the client and the organization
  • Manage territory performance targets, while maintaining client satisfaction and overall results
  • Identify and prioritize high potential sales opportunities

REQUIREMENTS:

  • MUST HAVE: Post-secondary education
  • PREFERENCE FOR: 1-2 years of B2B sales experience
  • IF YOU ARE AWESOME: will consider 6 months of ‘hunting-type’ sales experience
  • The desire to immerse yourself and absorb the world-class sales training you will receive


REMUNERATION:

BASE SALARY: $47,500
ON-TARGET VARIABLE AT 100% OF PLAN: $35,000 (uncapped)
ON-TARGET EARNINGS: $82,500 (uncapped)
