Sales Assistant

Cromwell Radio Group

I worked at the radio station in a town about seven miles from my house.   For the most part, I helped a saleswoman organize her meetings and payments with various clients.

  • I made several spreadsheets and databases to keep track of what contracts had to be renewed and so forth.
  • I  wrote commercials for the local businesses occasionally.  I think I wrote about three or four, and the saleswoman in charge of me opted to have all of them aired.  
  • I  made flyers to promote advertising deals or upcoming events.
