I’ve been in the HVAC industry for 11 years with 10 of those in the field as a technician. As a technician I was considered very capable and was always considered one of the best where ever I worked. I’ve moved on to sales and currently work inside sales at a manufacturer rep. I’m still searching for the outside sales role that I want but I keep running into the “I lack outside sales experience”. How did you get into outside sales? Any tips on how I can break into it Thanks for the help

Look into OSR positions with rental companies. Some of the big players have HVAC and Climate Control divisions and speaking from my district, often have open roles. If you have that much industry experience it may give leverage to make up for your lack of outside sales experience.

I am in the same boat. I have 12 years of inside sales experience and recently obtained my bachelors degree in social sciences. I want to get into pharmaceutical sales but would take anything to get some outside sales experience.

Should consider medical device too
