So right now, I worked with this company for 1 freaking month and have not made 1 client. Our company right now is in 300,000 debt and considering moving out since we cannot pay the rent. I hear the market is bad this year. So my duties is calling 50 company from this magazine daily and so far its been ” no thanks ” or ” we have someone”.

Should I considering changing jobs now? or continue and try to get experience?

The manager is always telling me that I need to find a client for wholesale market so our designers and web programmers can do some work or we will have to close down.

I need some good tips. I tried asking my manager if we can do door to door but he said do calling 50 a day out of this catalog that has over 800 companies.
Yes but as you said I have to find another job replacement.

Right now in an hour after lunch me and a market partner will go to americasmart to hand out portfolios for our site. I need to stay here abit longer because I spent alot of stuff for market like 2 laptops and other items. I have a balance of $ 7000 and need to get this cleared up with my CPA first then try to find another job.
Also this will look bad on my resume because if I write down ” 1 month working as marketing director” heck, most companies are looking for people with 1 to 2 year experience.
Also another bad issue is I am using my cellphone to make long distance calls ( 900 minutes ) and company phone to make local calls since the company phone has to pay to make long distance calls.
Thanks mona. About the phone, my cpa will reimburse me for the minutes I used up for the phone.
Telling me to calm down, yet this person is using all CAPS.

Anyhow, I guess I can keep going for experience.

    I would look for another job, but don’t quit the one you have until you have something else lined up. The company you are currently working for sounds extremely unstable. You say they are $ 300,000 in debt – they didn’t get that way overnight, and you’ve only been working there for a month, so don’t blame yourself for their financial situation. Your manager sounds like a jerk, and doesn’t sound like he/she is open to suggestions, such as going door to door. Your manager is putting pressure on you to find clients, but what is the manager actually doing to help you? Your manager should have some alternative ideas to gain clients instead of cold calling a bunch of people out of a magazine. Sounds like piss-poor management to me. I would seriously look for another job – who needs that kind of stress and frustration?

    Poor management and poor financial planning, sounds like disaster to me. Not to mention you should NEVER be asked to use your personal cell phone for business purposes. Keep your records for tax time as you might be able to report the usage as a business expense.

    If I were you I would use your efforts to find a new job. I know the economy is tough right now but you sound like a creative motivated person, so best of luck to you.

    I wanted something different and joined the MonaVie team a couple months ago. With your willingness to make phone calls you could probably build quite a business in very little time. Check it out if you think it is something you might want to try – http://www.mymonavie.com/soc

    If you are going into debt with a company that seems to be going nowhere then it might be best to at least start looking for another job. That’s smart. You can explain the situation in interviews. You might also want to look at your approach on the phone. Why aren’t people interested? Maybe they need some kind of incentive or a reason to check out your company. What does your company offer that maybe your competitors don’t offer? What does your company compete on? Why would someone want to do business with you?
