APS “Sales in a Box” a hit in schools
21st September 2017 | Journal Of Sales Transformation
Association of Professional Sales fellows are inspiring the next generation of salespeople via the “APS Sales in a Box student initiative to promote professional sales as a career in secondary schools. The programme provides guidance for anyone to promote professional sales as a career and is especially important in the context of employers admitting their first intake of B2B Sales Apprentices this autumn.
The APS wants to inspire young people to consider sales as a career destination. It has put together a short video of how fellows can create an engaging 45-minute session to promote sales in schools, APS Fellow Tim Chapman told the Journal. “The objective is to make it easy for an APS Fellow to host a brief interactive career presentation in your local secondary school without the need for lots of preparation.”
The session fits into a standard lesson period but can be extended or shortened according to circumstances.
“By the end of the session, young students will have a much clearer idea of what a career in sales is like, and whether it might be a suitable career choice for them. For those who think it is, we will also offer guidance and support to help them build towards their chosen career destination,” Chapman said.
