Working in sales involves creative problem solving
When you are in a position that gives you a great view of the market, you have the opportunity to engage in innovative sales work while being true to yourself and your personality. A strong collective sense of humour and nice colleagues help you achieve good results.
It is even possible to get the job of your dreams straight after graduating from school. Key Account Manager Petra Vilhunen, who now works with Alma Media’s media solutions, started her sales career at Iltalehti as a sales trainee.
“I was attracted by the Iltalehti brand. It was a good decision, as my work has always felt very motivating. It has helped me develop my professional skills, and successes have driven me forward,” she says.
After the six-month trainee programme, Vilhunen first worked as a Sales Manager for Iltalehti, and later took up her current post as Key Account Manager for Alma Media Solutions.
“Together with my team, I now plan advertising campaigns for Alma Media’s national media. In addition to the great team, the best aspect of my job is having the employer’s confidence and also having access to the best tools in the industry. This allows me to really use my creativity in my work.”
