    Can i get a job in sales with a degree in law? i know everyone says that sales doesn't need a specific degree but some improve chances. would law from a really good Russel group univeristy be good for a graduate sales job? i dont really want to be a lawyer but i would like a respectable and flexible degree that would opne up doors. i would like to go into sales, also would business management be good for sales?

    thanks

    Either of those options will be fine. Getting into a sales role is far more about your personality/character than your knowledge. The exception is unless you are in a highly technical area within sales (e.g. When you are selling a product/service and the employer that needs you to have a deep understanding of how it works - e.g. biology/chemistry related products).

    I know a few law graduates working in sales, so it is possible - mostly in recruitment though.
