Sales Associate at The Sherwin-Williams Company

about 2 years ago
My communication major is focused on interpersonal communication, which was helpful in building relationships and engaging with the Sherwin-Williams team and customer base. The key to sales is being able to identify what your customer needs, what they don't know they need, and presenting it to them as an asset to their business (quality, lowering expenses, et cetera). To be successful at this, you have to be able to find connections with your customers through conversation - not just about their business projects but about their life as well.
