A Driver to a Winner
By Ralph Aldrin Dacara
Jumari Aquino, a Product Sales Consultant of MSC, was astonished as he shook hands with his client upon closing the P3.200M contract with Go Traktora Trading Inc. He never expected it to happen this early because this was not the career he was first seeking.
Mr. Aquino was an undergrad of BS Civil Engineer. He applied at Multi-Line last March 10, 2022 as a Company Driver but an opportunity was opened to him to be a Product Sales Consultant. With excitement, he grabbed the opportunity and was enthusiastic with the challenge that lies ahead in his career change. He was hired on March 21, 2022 as a PSC. He never thought that this career change will lead him to a winning milestone by making sales after sales after sales then closing his first lumpsum project and finally closing the 3.200M worth of contract. This success was made possible with the supervision of his Sales Manager, Ms. Lilibeth Depasupil.
In an interview with Mr. Aquino, he expressed his gladness about the success. “Masaya ako sa achievement na ‘yan na sa konting panahon lang nakapag-close na ako agad ng ganyan kalaking account. Yes, driver ang una kong in-applyan sa Multi-Line. Driving kasi is my comfort zone. At noong nag-offer si Ma’am Avy if gusto ko mag-sales, parang na-challenge ako kaya tinanggap ko agad because madalang din po ang nag-offer ng sales lalo’t undergraduate lang ako. Kaya nag-try ako na mag-sales para naman bago sa akin at ang product naman is in-line sa course ko na Civil Engineering kaya mas lalo ako na-engganyo,” he said.
“As a newbie sa field na ito, ang maipapayo ko lang about success is to always be patient because your time will come. Lagi lang magtiwala at ‘wag susuko. Gusto ko lang sana magpasalamat kay Ma’am Avy sa pag-offer ng job na ito. Nagpapasalamat din ako kila Sir Joel, Sir Mark, Sir Sidney, Ma’am Daryl, na nag- train sa akin, at salamat din kay Ma’am Beth na lagi kong natatawagan ‘pag may mga tanong ako,” he cheerfully added.
