Automobile Sales Workers
Because thorough knowledge of automobiles-from how they work to
how they drive and how they are manufactured-is essential for a
successful sales worker, automotive maintenance classes in high
school are an excellent place to begin. Classes in English, speech,
drama, and psychology will help you to achieve the excellent
speaking skills you will need to make a sale and gain customer
confidence and respect. Classes in business and mathematics will
teach you to manage and prioritize your work load, prepare goals,
and work confidently with customer financing packages. As computers
become increasingly prevalent in every aspect of the industry, you
should take as many computer classes as you can. Speaking a second
language will give you an advantage, especially in major cities
with large minority populations.
