Sales Coordinators support sales representatives and coordinate sales-related activities. Although they are not responsible for selling products directly, sales coordinators play an important role in achieving sales targets by acting as an extension of the field sales force. This may include managing schedules, processing orders, filing documents, conducting research, making follow up calls, ensuring the adequacy of sales-related materials, and giving support when requested by clients. They may also act as first point of contact for urgent client needs when sales representatives are not available. This position provides a strong foundation for a lucrative career in sales.
