Cosmetics Sales Representatives
There are a number of classes you can take in high school to
help prepare you for a sales career. Naturally, business classes
can be beneficial. Knowledge of business practices and procedures
will help you understand the industry. Speech and English classes,
as well as experience on a debating club, will help you develop
better communication skills. Also, you should consider taking
psychology classes because selling requires an insightful knowledge
of people and an ability to read the customer. Computer courses are
useful since retail stores now use computerized record-keeping, and
a course in accounting can help independent cosmetics sales
representatives better manage their businesses.
