Sales Jobs in India

The survey findings concluded that professionals who are in sales jobs areas are presently the most sought after and will continue to hold sway in the coming years."In the next five years, these professionals will be in demand," says Kalyanmoy Chatterjee, CEO, GfK Mode. The sales job in pharmaceutical and health care sectors are in the spotlight too.

A lot of private investment is pouring in, but the firms don't have enough high quality talent, maintains Anil Sachdeva, founder-director, School of Inspired Leadership (SOIL), Gurgaon. According to the Planning Commission report of 2008, India has a shortage of six lakh doctors, 10 lakh nurses and two lakh dental surgeons, apart from a large number of paramedical staff. Health management services also need a professional overhaul, with a customer-service oriented qualified workforce, which has been non-existent so far. As the sectors grow, the demand for professionals to drive the growth will also be on the rise. "Engineers along with a good selling capability across all functions like civil, mechanical, automation, chemical as well as industrial will be back in demand," says Kanika Vaswani, associate director, Elixir Web Solutions, a Delhi-based recruitment firm. Infrastructure and the oil and gas industries will hire engineers across all verticals, she maintains.

 "But the demand for Sales person is dipping in sectors which are not performing well, like real estate," she adds. "While recession has affected the job market, at the same time, if you know your job well, opportunities are available," says the national manager, Transport and Integrated Logistics divison. The $364-billion retail industry, though, will not gallop at the earlier projected figure of 30%, but will continue to evolve. Retailer's Association of India, an apex body of retailers, envisages a 15% growth for organized retail, in which supply chain management or logistical function is the backbone. While the need for developing multiple proficiencies cannot be ignored, it is imperative that the employee is self-driven towards this. It should be done with proper counseling and training, maintain experts.

"To grow, an individual should be willing", says Suresh. "One must continue to enhance skill sets in case of sales job as practice makes a man perfect. It was said according to the managing director, Manpower India. Employers will continue to hire for the positions they deem critical to their business operations. For corporate, this is the ideal time to scout for the best talent in sales job and to retain the finest candidates.
