Can you please describe a job in sales?
First, let me give you a bit of background: I am a high school student, and I've been interested in finance for a little less than a year. Although I am better in the humanities subjects, I am working hard to get better math skills (not so hard to be a quant, though) and am reading a lot about finance and economics (I think I'll major in econ). After finding some adversities with trading and analysis, I think a job as a saleswoman would suit me.
So now let's go to questions:
-Is a job in sales a bit of a mix between law (esp. the persuasion skills) and finance?
-Are the hours long (I kind of want them to be, tbh)
-Does it require at least median levels of intellectual labor?
-Is it stressful?
Sorry if I still sound like a f--ktard. I am still learning the art of talking/writing like the people from Liar's Poker.
F--ktard was a good place to begin with.
