Re: Attention!!!!- car sales people
There can be but once again depends on which dealer we're talking here. Yes you will have to start in sales first which is not a bad thing. Just put your head down and be keen. I have the same goal as you, marketing. The Peter Warren goup which my dealership, Peter Warren Smithfield is part of, has Sales Managers and Dealer Principles taking care of the marketing. It will take a few years of hard work but the rewards are certainly there.
Your statement that you have a passion for cars is a good reason to get in but it shouldn't be the only one. You need to be motivated EVERYday, otherwise you will start feeling the pressure.
Have a go at it. If you don't like it, get out. Simple as that.
