Start early, and get your foot in the door with a company you can grow with. Especially in large cities, sales jobs are competitive and 99.9% of them require previous experience. Pay your dues, slowly move up the sales ladder, and appreciate the early-on 'grunt' work because hitting the pavement and cold calling skills really do come in handy down the line.
