Outbound Sales Associate
in Newport News, VA

"I started working for MCI Worldcom as an accomplished customer service/sales professional in 2001. I wanted a challenge. I desired to be pushed out of my comfort zone and to own the entire sales process. Cold calling was the order of the day which wore some of my associates thin, but I enjoyed it and soon excelled breaking all my quotas and making a name for myself."
