Did I miss out on an opportunity? Is Sales not for everyone? Is it a learnable skill?
I recently got an opportunity to get a referral for a Sales Specialist role. The role requires getting deep understanding of popular Cloud product and developing relationships with Executives to sell the product. Keeping track of sales cycles ..etc. There are quarterly revenue targets to achieve.
I have never had experience of selling anything in my life. I am currentyl working in Business Intelligence role focussed on reporting. I hate my job and am actively looking for a new role. I passed this opportunity since I felt like I am short of the sales experience required , although I liked being part of growing Cloud product. Did I miss out? Does Sales focussed roles require a different character , can it be learned by anyone ?
