Position Profile
As someone who is passionate about creating connections, you'll want to look at U.S. Cellular for your next career move.
At U.S. Cellular, you'll find a company that values your passion for establishing solid relationships, which we believe strengthens our ability to reach our goals successfully. It leads to an atmosphere of respect, integrity and trust, which is at the heart of our "Dynamic Organization."
In this position, your proven ability to search for and bring on new small-to-medium-sized business clients is your key to success. Your previous experience in outside sales tells us you have the strong relationship-building skills needed in this position. As someone with a drive for helping people, you'll be able to determine how our company can best meet our prospective clients' wireless needs. Your expertise in training means that you'll be able to provide guidance that helps retail associates serve your new business accounts with excellence as well as identify and pursue new sales opportunities with confidence.
As a company that truly "believes in something better," we are a vital part of the communities we serve. You'll also have an opportunity to build relationships within the community by developing or participating in activities that introduce them to the exceptional products and services we offer.
You'll have an edge if you've completed an associate's degree, with a bachelor's degree preferred. You'll also need to be able to tell us about your past five years of sales experience, with three of those in business-to-business outside sales. You'll be able to demonstrate your excellent time management, organizational and problem solving skills. A background in training would be helpful in transitioning your new business accounts to our retail associates for ongoing service.
We believe that effective leadership is the key to inspiring success in others. Previous experience in leading others - not necessarily ones that report directly to you, but maybe a "dotted line" relationship instead - will be helpful for this position. Above all, your passion for developing new relationships and inspiring others through your leadership are the elements that will help all of us achieve success.
We suggest taking a closer look at U.S. Cellular and our way of building careers.  We believe you'll appreciate the quality we invest in your experience and enjoy the success we create together.  Visit us at
