School Fundraisers First Step to Sales Career

April 21, 2014

fundraisingCookie dough, wrapping paper, and candles – oh my!

You don’t have to have children to be inundated with the school fundraisers that sweep the neighborhood, offices, and outside your local grocery store. From magazines drives to wrapping paper, from cookie dough to candles, it seems everyone is selling something for their school PTA, field trip, athletics, drama or musical fundraising.

Is this really such a bad thing?

Hi, it’s Jill Merriam, Dealer For The People at Key Hyundai in Milford and Manchester Connecticut, and now that I’m in the midst of the fundraising mayhem from a parent’s point of view, I’m changing my tune, and beginning to think all this fundraising is actually a good thing! Take a quick listen, and I’ll tell you why:

So there you have it. I hire solution providers at Key Hyundai all the time (in fact, hiring right now!), and the skills kids learn from school fundraising can absolutely be applied to work ethics, skills and talents down the road.

Do you have any experience (love or hate!) with fundraising? I’d love to hear about it at jillcares@keycars.com !
