I graduated in september after summer session, and job options are REALLY slim. My gpa is pretty bad because of my poor performances in economics courses (overall 3.14) and I don't have any real hard work or intern experience in the last two years. I've been applying to jobs, but I mostly only qualify for "general major" jobs. And a lot of those happen to be sales. I do have a reasonable amount of sales, customer service, and hospitality experience, but most of which occurred two years ago while I was in community college.
I don't mind sales at all, and in fact I'm very business oriented. But most of the sales associate positions I've been getting offers from are straight up cold sales, low salary, potential for commission jobs. The pay isn't horrible (between 30-40k plus commission) but that's only because I'm living at home and I'll be able to manage. But is it worth my time? I'm almost at the point where I just want a job. My school loans are going to kick in soon and it's just a horrible empty feeling sitting at home doing nothing most of the time. But I know that if I take a job in sales I'll have to be 100% committed and willing to work my ass off if I want to see a decent salary.
What do you guys think? Wait it out and keep looking for other offers? (In which case, what fields would you guys recommend? Because it seems like I only qualify for entry level positions). Or is the path of sales a solid experience worth my time?
