Your advice to young professionals looking at sales as a career…

I think most young professionals who are going to look at a career in sales and marketing probably need to put an initial few years in sales. This is extremely important as this is where you are directly interacting with the customer, no amount of focused group discussion, research or strategic thinking can replace understanding what exactly the customer is thinking and this can only be leant when you are directly interacting with a customer. So I think it is extremely important and for young professionals I would go out on a limb to say that it is an crucial attribute to acquire at the start of their career.
