Pinpoint Demographics? Know anything about it?
They are located in Bath and have summer job openings. I am not familiar with the business of demographics, so I am not sure if their goals are realistic? Could anyone comment on their expectations and/or business? I'm tempted by this job... Also, take a look at the writing question. Wonder how they would use the answer in their decision...
Here is their email with job description:
Thank you for your response. I've attached two documents for you to review
that should fully explain the position and your job responsibilities.
We're asking our salespeople to email 50 customers per week (minimum
requirement) which should result in a total sales of $1000/week and
$500/week in commissions for each salesperson (on average). Your sales
territory will be an entire U.S. state with many industries/organizations
that are your target markets.
For consideration, please email:
-Your resume or current work experience
-Since most of the candidate's interactions with customers will be by email,
we need to verify that each candidate has a proficiency in writing ability
and an understanding of business.
Please email a few paragraphs about 1) why the current recession and high
unemployment is continuing (rather than recovery quickly) and 2) your
forecast on the economy for 2013. You may use secondary sources for your
research and information, however, please do not plagiarize (we will check
using Google searches on random samples of your phrases).
We believe this will be the flexible position with a large market potential
and great products that will make your summer profitable and interesting.
