Searching for a Timeshare Sales Jobs

kissing ass

Today I went searching for timeshares sales jobs in Mexico, and it was not as easy or straightforward as I thought. Let me be clear. Historically, when it comes to job searching and typical employer-employee “official” meet and greets, I am no Don Juan, especially when it comes to fast money timeshares sales jobs. Actually, I would go so far as to say that I am a salient example of how not to act. I am usually pretty apathetic about most jobs. I lack the expected enthusiasm a potential employee is suppose to fake in order to get his foot in the door. Rather, I am more of a let’s start business and figure out how to print money kind of guy. Ass kissing and pandering do not sit well with my false sense of entitlement (but hey I am American☺).

Probably the most difficult thing for me to overcome in my apathy toward being a working man, is that if I don’t personally reap benefits from it, or have a vested interest in some form (ie-bartending-more drinks=more tips=more chicks) then I couldn’t give 2 shits about it(2, not 1). I guess I am not a Company Man. But with this day and age, in some ways (vis-a-vie internet, entrepreneurship, outsourcing to people who are willing to work harder-for less money-with less complaining) the decision to say “what the fuck and make your move” bares a greater risk-reward ratio than history paints.

But I digress. A few months ago as I sat happily (har) unemployed like the rest of American’s “educated” youth, clutching a glorified food stamp (a Political Science or English degree), I perused a myriad of online job boards, in hopes of finding both my true life’s calling and a job that yielded the truckloads of cash that I had been promised with my 4 year of partying degree. But alas, online job boards, like craigslist advertisements or internet marketing Ponzi schemes are full of liars, charlatans, and outright thieves.MLM commercial scam Wanting to keep my travel hopes and dreams alive, I sought this job board – www.timesharestaff.com, thinking “hummm a sales job I can do all over the world, be in control of how much money I make, and set it up ahead of time online—Yeah that sounds perfect”. Wrong. There are dozens of sites like these. Search Engine Optimized to the max, to achieve a high Google ranking to boost traffic, and then either raking in Google Adsense dollars or advertising promotional fees from those resorts for promotion. Maybe if you have a lot of experience in a certain field, or are in a very niche profession, then your “resume” would get pulled from the 50 million other applicants, but odds are you are about as memorable as the girl laying next you after a dozen tequila shots in the morning. At a major multi-national company, unless you are very experienced and have something specific on your “resume” that would be pulled by a computer algorithm searching for keywords (ie-, 10 years PHP expertise, will sell soul to pour coffee and kiss ass), your best bet would be to know someone, or have a great uncle twice removed who once knew a guy who knew another guy. So where does that leave the rest of us?

Pounding the pavement and hustlin’ like our forefathers.

But I was not quite ready to throw in the towel just yet on selling Timeshares in exotic destinations all over the world. Rather, like with fruit or women, I would need to go straight to the farm for the best results. So how did my Timeshare Sale Job search begin?

In Mexico – doing something like this…

    When making a timeshare purchase that costs thousands of dollars, you should expect professional and legitimate service from all the timeshare staff members that you encounter. The Timeshare salesperson are hired by the resort to represent their sales efforts. As such, the timeshare salesperson should provide you with a business card with their personal email address and telephone number that belongs to the resort system. This is an interesting article about timeshare salespeople in Mexico:
