Good analytical skills. Be able to hear 200 individual pieces of information. Discard the 175 that have no bearing, and then tie the 25 pieces together into a compiling decision/path forward.

Patience: Not everything happens at the speed you would like. Push hard, don’t be afraid to voice your position, but know when to be patient. For this job you have to have an honest and real feel for customers. Who they are, what they want, where they buy, how much they spend, this allows you to target their needs better. The classic win/win, customer gets their needs fulfilled better and your company has a winning product.

Creative?
Creative 
Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

What is an Occupation

Often the terms job, occupation and career are used interchangeably. In fact, they have very different meanings. On this site we use them to mean the following:

A job is a work role with a specific organisation (paid or unpaid). Example: Auditor at CRH Group.

An occupation is a wide category of jobs with similar characteristics. Example: physician, engineer, educator, or scientist.

A career is a lifetime journey of building and making good use of your skills, knowledge and experiences.

Using this search you can explore hundreds of occupations. For many we include interviews with people doing that job, and discuss their career journey so far.
