Underemployed - meaning worth more than they're paid - due to economy
Unemployed - meaning without work for more than 60 consecutive biz. days
Under-marketed - meaning the best jobs are not even advertised and the best reps. are not even matched up to the perfect fits. Employers are "spinning their wheels" according to senior manager with 20+ years of sales hiring expertise.
Companies are starving for best sales talent in the food industry - senior managers are getting help - but you have to look in the right sources and network with the right professionals. With millions of Americans now unemployed - there's a huge influx of available MS sales reps. - but sorting thru it to find the best MS based leadership in the Gulf-region can be an tough task. Mississippi's Food marketplace exceeds $2.4 Billion and over 20,000 employees, yet finding the diamond in the rough sales leader is still a tough task. . . why?

Here are a couple Solid Tips:
1. Network - Go through your vendors and best reps. you know today - scoop from within
2. Outreach - Reach out to folks not in your industry and ask them to refer any relatives, friends, associates WITH STRONG FOOD INDUSTRY EXPERTISE and email you asap:
* Most companies are still doing the old-fashioned Online Ads and e-recruiting
* Word of mouth is still the best way to get quality talent
* Hiring executives say it best . . . "Network or Not-work!"
One such example of a local Gulfcoast sales executive is Robert Liberato - a seasoned entrepreneur with over 30 years of direct food, sales, purchasing, and leadership expertise. Very recently a major Food Company restructured and he found himself looking for a new sales position in the very industry that he's an expert in. It has only been a few weeks into the search - but sorting thru the lower-end positions to find one that values this calibur and level of performance is also a challenging task.
Finding the right talent to fill Food Industry Sales Roles is just as hard for the rep. as it is for the company searching. Bob says, "It's crazy to think that folks with decades of closing and purchasing skills are taking months to land their dream-jobs - I believe it's a matter of who you know. Plus, ensuring that hiring executives actually see the value of a seasoned veteran. I have been in the food industry since a teen ager and worked from the ground up . . that's why I over-performed in sales - I have done everything from cut meat to cut huge sales deals for very large food proposals. I'm agressively searching for the right fit, but do not want to settle for a position just to find a job - I want to double and triple and grow that division!"
