5 Actions you must take to get the Media Sales Job you want

Media sales jobs are an extreme­ly lucra­tive avenue to ven­ture along in terms of employ­ment rewards and job sat­is­fac­tion guar­an­tee. The num­ber of media sales jobs that are avail­able are also on the increase, due to the grow­ing pop­u­lar­i­ty of the media industry. 

With the pop­u­lar­i­ty of media on the rise, so too are the amount of poten­tial media sales job employ­ment seek­ers. The com­pe­ti­tion is fierce on it’s own, but with the ris­ing dif­fi­cul­ty in get­ting or main­tain­ing a sta­ble media sales job posi­tion in this econ­o­my, one needs to be very well equipped with the right infor­ma­tion to be able to land a media sales job. Even in this eco­nom­ic down­turn, some recruiters still can­not find what they are look­ing for, as per an arti­cle writ­ten for Media Bistro.

Below are 5 actions that you should take that will increase your chances of get­ting the media sales job that you are look­ing for.

  1. The first piece of advice that can be offered is to eval­u­ate your approach to your search for a media sales job, do not appear des­per­ate for a job. Don’t appear as though you are unem­ployed and will­ing to take any­thing you can get. This will evoke a sense of des­per­a­tion in your future media sales job employ­ers that is extreme­ly off-putting. Rather appear to be work­ing through a tran­si­tion­al phase in your life, even if you are unemployed.

  2. Define your per­son­al mis­sion state­ment into an adver­tise­ment for you. You have to be your own PR man­ag­er in order to land a lucra­tive media sales job. Find out exact­ly who you are and what you have to offer a media sales job by delv­ing into your work expe­ri­ence and your lev­el of skill. Ensure that these items of promise become your sell­ing points. Con­sult a per­son­al rela­tions offi­cial if nec­es­sary to make sure you are por­tray­ing the cor­rect image that relates to media sales jobs as well as to the industry.

  3. Get an updat­ed list of ref­er­ences that can back up your work eth­ic and your abil­i­ty to excel in the field of media sales jobs. Con­tactable ref­er­ences are a win­ning advan­tage that will ele­vate your chances of land­ing the media sales job of your choice, and put you in good stead with your future employer.

  4. Sim­pli­fy your resume so that it con­tains only the most per­ti­nent and valid points of inter­est that relate to the field of media sales jobs. If your resume has been used to land jobs at a gym and still con­tains ref­er­ences to being an aer­o­bics instruc­tor, you might want to delete that and only include the items that will increase your chances of employ­ment in the media sales job field.

  5. Net­work. Spread the word about your future move towards find­ing a media sales job and make sure that it falls upon the ears that could influ­ence your chances of land­ing a job. Make con­tacts and take notes. Even if you don’t land a media sales job through your net­work­ing, the chances are you will get the oppor­tu­ni­ty to use those con­tacts lat­er on in the game.
