Bad news: As of 2012, the future has dimmed for door-to-door encyclopedia salesmen.
Good news: Most industries still have a growing need for qualified sales professionals.
According to Statistics Canada’s Jan. 21 and Jan. 22 reports, both retail and wholesale sales in Canada have grown compared with previous years. Retail sales have increased for five consecutive months as of November (stats for December will be released in February).

The Sales Professional program (31 weeks) at Sprott Shaw is designed to provide you with basic sales skills while enhancing your knowledge in customer service, essential technology – eg. spreadsheet and presentation applications – and personal and office management skills.
