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.
