As sales professionals, we are used to making mistakes - lots and lots of mistakes. Recently, Treeline has asked a few consultants to do a quick pitch to inform the public about some tools that we just rolled out, Join Our Network and DADO. We taped the consultants doing these sales pitches so that we could put them up on YouTube and spread the good word on what Treeline is trying to accomplish.
Monday night I had the opportunity to train with Mike Brown, the WEC World Champion at 145lbs and a member of The American Top Team out of Florida.

By joining our network, we can make it even easier to match you with the right opportunity. Our extensive network is a confidential and searchable database that will allow our consultants to match you based on criteria that matters (sales type, size, cycle, etc).
One of the most common traps is the “Negative Sell.” The negative sell can come in many different forms, but most commonly hiring managers will bait you with other positions internally that may or may not be open to try to get to the bottom of your primal interest.
Job Fairs are built for companies, not job seekers. Job Fairs are based on an advertising business model, which is precisely how the organizers make their money. The model is not about getting people jobs; it is about creating enough hype and promoting traffic in order to entice potential clients to purchase space.
