Interesting topic and conversation. I found this thread as I research about this pre-need sales career. I am a former realtor who switched to a government transit job when kids come around. Now kids are growing up. Transit job is getting dangerous and needs lots of real operational management experience to go up the ladder to management. So, I came across this unique sales career, spoke to a few players in the market, SCI and Arbor here in Canada. I survived and thrived when I was in real estate sales. Prior to that I was in professional pharmaceutical sales. Did well there. It seems to me that it is better to get into family service dept than community sales dept at SCI. Will someone enlighten me on that? Thanks for the feedbacks.
