I've been interning at an almost medium size company for a year (full time in the Summer months and part-time during school). I've been moved around from training, to sales operations due to some organizational changes but I've found a mentor in my newest supervisor and I feel that sales operations is a field I'd like to pursue. I would like to work here full time after college is finished in 10 months, but there are some issues:
- Their hiring process is a mystery to me and my supervisor (Only been here since December)
- The company hasn't been doing all that well
- Our president blames all our problems on sales (the position I want is in sales).
- My degree isn't sales related, its Management Information Systems
However, I'm pretty well liked within the departments I've worked for. I've worked closely with members of the leadership team, and they like me. I'm usually requested to do work for other departments and I am always open to those requests and attempt to help solve those problems.
Is there a specific way I can leverage my the skills I've honed at the company and my internal workplace connections to find myself a permanent position?
