Sales Representative

Great River Learning, Dubuque, IA

This listing has expired

Imagine the fun and excitement of being an investor on Shark Tank.  As a Sales Associate, your job is to interview, listen for business potential, and persuade select candidates to work with your company.  Wouldn't that be a fun way to acquire new business!?  At Great River Learning (GRL) you're in the driver's seat.  You work with different colleges and universities in your territory to identify business opportunities, interview professors, and persuade author candidates that have what it takes to become GRL authors.  Occasionally, you'll need to beat-out other "sharks" swimming in the same water.  We want to partner with talented educators in charge of lower-level, higher-enrollment courses to develop more interactive and engaging materials.  Also, if the publication we develop works well locally we have the experience and resources to market it nationally. 

In A Typical Work Week as a Sales Associate, You Will...

  • Proactively plan and schedule your week ahead by sending emails and making phone calls to schedule meetings.
  • Run meetings to interview, identify business opportunity, and recruit select college professors to become GRL authors.
  • When travelling, make the most of time on campus by making additional phone calls of higher priority contacts or department chairs.
  • Follow-up with prospective and existing authors. This includes keeping notes and next steps in the CRM for all prospective, in-development, and existing publications so both you and the in-house team have the information they need.

Characteristics of Who GRL Looks For in Sales Associate

You are...

  • Someone who has the skills and abilities to become a sales professional
  • Competitive, highly organized, and self-driven.
  • Someone who sees time as a resource that shouldn't be wasted. You take advantage of time between appointments instead of moseying around or checking social media. 
  • Someone who possesses enough leadership, motivation and purpose to hold yourself accountable.
  • Positive and have a "can do" attitude towards life.
