I was promoting/selling photocopiers at a local council event that was aimed at pushing local businesses to buy local, I introduced myself to a manufacturer who then called and asked if I would like to have a chat and was offered a great opportunity.
It is a challenging but very rewarding career, I would say that confidence can be key to being successful within the industry, the route to market and product.
Customer service is also important along with building trust - always be at the end of the phone to help and support.
Don’t be worried that some people think you don’t have all the knowledge just because you are a woman within the construction industry, don’t be afraid to speak up and be yourself, everyone is willing to help you succeed.
Meeting customers and building relationships, putting a face to the name, and the best part… getting involved with a project from start to finish and seeing the end product.
