I am an 8 year veteran of the United States Coast Guard. I am currently looking for a career oriented position in Sales or Business Management in the Atlanta, GA area. I will relocate if needed. If you have or know of someone who has an immediate position open and believes I would be a welcomed benefit to their company, please message me here or e-mail me at kshawns1969@yahoo.com.

Kevin.. at the home of the Cyclorama,,,, A good place might be to examine what area of sales you want to get involved with as there are different skill set for different products. Some will be impulse and little effort... like a demand product Ipad-Cell Phone and such. Others may be service based like in home cable or alarms. Pick something YOU like to shop for or learm about,,,, may RV's or Sports Equipment or Cars... its alot easier to sell something you enjoy and believe in... Best of luck and thanks for your service...

The first thing you need to do is assess your strengths, which should include your education, experience and interests. From this I would develop a blue plate resume, no more than two pages in length. The resume should include your education and experience along with a job objective. It should be results oriented, which would identify, promotions, citations and other award you have earned. The functions of any jobs you have had, and successes enjoyed. The resume should be customized to fit the job you are applying for. I would identify areas of the country you would like to reside. Executive search firms and employment agencies specializing in sales, and any specific industry that you are interested in working should be contacted. I would look a large corporate websites for job openings. Companies like Proctor and Gamble for years had a good training programs. The Linkedin website is another good resource. Look at industry categories that interest you, and try to get involved in committees. It will give you some experience, knowledge about the field, and, hopefully, some good contacts. Good luck and thanks for what you do.

You may have some opportunity in Marine insurance, commercial and personal lines. Contact an agent in the Atlanta area and see if he has any contacts for you. I think you and have opportunity in Underwriting Marine insurance or as an agent for personal water crafts or commercial shipping. Contact me if you want to discuss.

I am not sure what we have in the Atlanta area, but you can go to www.mscdirect.com and look under about MSC tab and career opportunities. We have a number of sales positions open with opportunities to go into sales management. I do know we have a government sales position in Washington DC area if you are interested.
