Our perfect person for the job:

  • 90% of your time is spent on the phone, building rapport with prospective customers and closing sales, clear communicator and straight forward.
  • On-time, all the time is your motto! You’re never late to following up with customers, social events, client meetings or doctor appointments.
  • You consider yourself a creative problem solver and builder of new opportunities.  Customer objections are a starting point for making things happen.  You aren’t afraid to push back with pleasant persistence.  You see hurdles as a fun challenge.
  • You would have been a forensic accountant if it weren’t for the fact that you are gregarious by nature and thrive on working with people.  Details are still important to you!
  • You are committed to your career and growing your sales empire, one customer at a time.
  • You embrace technology as a powerful tool to help you stay organized and on top of your sales objectives and current customer bookings.
  • You are presentable and professional.

  • High school diploma/GED required; 4-year degree in a related discipline preferred.
  • 2+ years sales experience, creating and building customer sales relationships. You’re going to be on the phones a lot but in a good way. We’re all about building relationships with our clients.  Experienced in telemarketing sales?  Did you spend a lot of time on the phone planning events for hotel customers?  We love that!  Look, the bottom line here is you need to be an effective sales person but you also need to do things the NW Navigator way.  We want you to make a big pay check (because then we do too) and take pride in your work!
  • Comfortable working with Outlook, Word, Excel and other software in a business environment.
  • Experienced working in a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system.
  • Valid driver license and dependable transportation
