Megan Stahlman ’16 Balances Schoolwork and a Successful Sales Career
03.26.14 |
Megan Stahlman, a sophomore majoring in business administration, has recently been recognized at the Cutco Northeastern Division Awards Ceremony in Connecticut for several awards. As the top sales representative for the 2013 Northeastern Division, Stahlman achieved more than $60,500 in sales for the year. With this achievement, she earned a trophy for hitting the benchmark of $50,000. She was also awarded a Rising Star Award for her sales within the nation. 
  
Stahlman has been working with Vector Marketing Corporation selling Cutco, high quality kitchen cutlery and sporting knives, for about a year and a half. Last summer she was selected to be an assistant manager for the new office in New Haven, Conn. and has continued her work throughout the year. During school Stahlman works as an assistant manager for the office in Lancaster, where she conducts interviews and trains employees. Stahlman also earns the highest commission working as a field sales manager. In addition to being a full-time student and working for Vector, she has been attending the Vector Leadership Academy on weekends throughout her semesters to learn more about selling and management.

“Sometimes it’s a little difficult balancing schoolwork and Vector, especially when you get caught up in the money and success you can have with sales,” Stahlman said. “But it’s also important to stay focused on school work. When I put my mind to it, I have no problem balancing school and work.” 

As an outstanding leader within the organization, Stahlman has been chosen to start her own branch office in Rhode Island this summer with the complex task of doing everything necessary to own and operate her office, including hiring and training new sales representatives and managing company finances. Although Stahlman is nervous about this venture, she is looking forward to the experience. 

“Having experience working with Vector provides a guaranteed interview with companies like Comcast, Johnson & Johnson, and Motorola,” Stahlman explained. She is hopeful that her job and experience will help her achieve her goal of becoming a CEO one day. 

Because of her life-changing experience with Vector, Stahlman encourages everyone to try a job in sales at least once. “I’m doing something that I never thought I would ever be doing as a sophomore in college. Although this job has definitely challenged me physically, mentally, and emotionally, it’s the most rewarding job ever, and I can’t imagine who I’d be right now if I had skipped my interview.”
