PART 1 - Introduction

Q. Let’s talk about what you do. Do you work or are you a student?
A.Thank you for the question. Well, I am a regional sales manager working with a multinational corporation, headquartered in the USA, and it deals with manufacturing of computer hardware. I have finished my graduation 4 years ago and a full-time employee now.

Q. What’s your job? Why did you choose that kind of work?
A.I am assigned to check everything related to the sales of products. Moreover, I have also to supervise some other employees working in different parts of the city. I picked this type of work for no specific reasons. I was seeking a job after completing my graduation and got this one in my luck. However, I must inform you that I love my job and I feel lucky to have this job. This job perfectly suits my academic background, skill set and expectation.

Q. How long have you been doing it?
A.I have been working in this profession for past four years. I joined this company just after I finished my graduation and have never changed my job till now.

Q. What is a typical day like at your work?
A.The typical day begins with the account inventory management. Then I set the sales target for the day and distribute that to the staff working with me. Sometimes, I need to visit the showrooms to know about the real sales scenarios and match them with the statistics I am provided with. Besides, I also need to pay attention to complaints and queries from the clients and customers as well. Setting up or revision of the sales strategy is another usual task that I do every day. Besides, I read newspapers, check my emails and drink around 3-4 cups of coffee per day. Overall, I enjoy my work schedule. 

Q. Are there things you don’t like about it? What are they? 
A.Yes, there are certain things that I cannot cope up with, but these are minors. Reaching the sales target every month is a hefty task for me and for the other employees as well. I also need to work on the weekends sometimes which is frustrating for an employee like me.
