  14. 14. The challenges that I anticipate as a new sales representative at Pearson are…
  15. 15. “Getting Acquainted” I anticipate one of the challenges will be becoming familiarwith the territory and the digital management systems. Although a Pearson representative’s territory is smallerthan a Cengage orMcGraw-Hill representative, I would want to provide the best customerservice that I could, especially to my high profit schools. Making myself visible to the professors and department leaders and becoming familiarwith the campuses will take time and work.
  16. 16. “Managing Time” Anotherchallenge that I anticipate is learning how to best manage my time. In orderto provide good customerservice, it takes time answering emails, visiting campuses, and working one-on-one with professors. Fora school to require the curriculum, it is vital that the professors and departments are comfortable using it; otherwise, the sale could lead to attrition. Also, depending on the time of year, the daily schedule can drastically change.
  17. 17. How I Will Be Successful despite these challenges Prioritize tasks based on numbers, urgency level, and management Plan agenda ahead of time fordaily and weekly tasks Asklots of questions and be an active listener Show customerservice skills and presentation skills
  18. 18. C Look at a day when you are supremely satisfied at t end.

  21. 21. Balancing Time Balancing TimeSome days are just longer than others, and that is sometimes what needs to happen. But I have become more efficient with my time by prioritizing task importance, making goals for myself and creating a plan to reach those goals, and by managing communication. This allows me to successfully reach career goals, as well as personal goals.
