Exactly the same story word for word and I was selling something similarly unsexy. I personally did not enjoy the job as much,
However I was taking it as a learning curve, I was thinking nothing you learn in life goes to waste, so why waste time here by getting bored?
Why not become the ultimate sales guy my firms got until I am here, one day it ll pay of somewhere, one day this skill will be useful.
I was working on my tone, my pronunciations and becoming a great listener overall.
I have become a better communicator because of it, did not have to use the whole sales guy thing so far, but the experience was worth it.
