Interdisciplinary Learning CoursesLearn to sell (yourself): Sales techniques

The world is driven by contacts, and organizations are looking for people capable of influencing and selling. Don't be left out.

You know that it is important that you learn to sell... and to sell oneself. And this is probably your only opportunity to learn how to do it, while being guided and accompanied, before facing a challenge in your professional future.
We all need persuasion and sales skills, whether it is to promote ourselves as valuable professionals, to market services or products, to raise funds, negotiate, or to convince co-workers to collaborate and make it easier for us to achieve our goals. And we must also know how to use these skills in digital environments.

This is so relevant that, for several years now, LinkedIn, the world's largest reference point for employment trends, has been positioning persuasion as the second-most demanded competence by companies (only behind creativity). In fact, it is one of the skills most frequently evaluated in the selection processes, so it can condition your access to the job that interests you.
In addition, sales require complex thinking and socio-emotional skills, so they will not be replaced by artificial intelligence (especially those of high-value services or products).

Familiarizing yourself with these processes and practicing will help you to have confidence in your abilities and to achieve your professional (and personal) goals. Sign up now!
